Policy Analyst of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Atik Mohammed has accused President John Dramani Mahama of turning the economy into a bony one within 100 days of his administration.
According to him, instead of embarking on the ‘Better Ghana Agenda’ he has rather worsened the woes of Ghanaians.
April 15, 2013 marked the first 100 days of President Mahama’s administration. Even though nothing was done to mark the occasion, the President came under a lot of flaks since the opposition side of government were of the view that the lives of Ghanaians has been worsened.
Speaking on Monday’s edition of Kokrokoo on Peace FM, Atik Mohammed told Kwami Sefa-Kayi that “Advancing the better Ghana Agenda should have put the country at a better level however; he has turned the economy into a bony economy. Nothing is working. This does not add anything in the advancement of the better Ghana Agenda. His first 100 days in terms of the economy has been a total failure. It has been gloomy. There are no positives”.
He said the evidence that nothing is working within the first 100 days of President Mahama’s administration is the frequent power outages and the lack of water in the country.
He however indicated that the only good thing that the President has done is moving the seat of government to the Flagstaff House.
“Where is the Better Ghana Agenda? We cannot see a tangible action to prove that he is trying to make the lives of Ghanaians better. We don’t see clear initiates to solving the unemployment situation among the youth. All these problems are as a result of mismanagement within these hundred days…
The only plus to his 100 days is relocating to the Jubilee house. Apart from that I can hardly find any other positives. I think his first 100 days have been extremely gloomy; it has not given us any sense of hope. He has rather deepened the hopelessness of Ghanaians” he mentioned.
