First Vice Chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay is baffled at what he says is the fast rate at which the John Mahama-led administration has reversed the booming socio-economic conditions of the country.
According to him, Ghanaians under the supposed Better Ghana Agenda are poorer, dejected and downhearted than ever.
President John Mahama will on Wednesday, January 7th, 2015 be two years in office. His fiercest critics have described the performance of his government as one of the poorest in Ghana’s history.
But members of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) insist the Mahama-led government is the best thing that has happened to Ghana.
Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Tuesday, Freddie Blay did not mince words when he described the performance of the NDC government as shambolic.
He said on the scale of one to 100, he will rate the Mahama administration below 10 because “it has failed big time”.
The NPP man noted that President Mahama lacked foresight to build on the solid foundation laid by the erstwhile Kufuor regime which resulted in a higher economic growth.
“Mahama becoming president is the worst thing that has happened to us; in just two years the lives of Ghanaians have moved from bad to worse. I feel sorry for Ghana,” he bemoaned.
The NPP Vice Chairman indicated that, the election of John Mahama as a young president was supposed to bring renewal of hope and confidence in the youth but his “abysmal performance” has defeated the confidence the youth had in him.
He described as worrying, how government has “engulfed itself in the needless propaganda” at the expense of the bread and butter issues confronting Ghanaians.
“We are saddled with interest payment of about 9 billion [cedis] a year and what you boast about [is] one water or school project which never exists. I feel sad”.
Freddie Blay urged government to sit up and work assiduously to salvage the economy from total collapse.
