Agric Minister Fifi Kwetey has said Ghana has seen more development under the two-year-old Mahama-led administration than it did under the eight-year rule of former President John Kufuor.
According to him, even though the government had a difficult beginning as a result of the eight-month long election petition trial at the Supreme Court, the President managed to achieve his development targets.
“I don’t believe that whole petition was with the view of turning any results, they knew there was no way that result was going to be changed. It was a first round demolition and they knew it.
“They did it deliberately with the view of hindering the progress of Ghana economically; create uncertainties and bring paralysis with the hope of disrupting the President.
“In spite of all that, you go to the various sectors of the country and effectively you can compare achievements to the eight years under their rule and yet be able to really stand tall,” the former deputy finance minister stated on Radio Gold’s Alhaji and Alhaji Saturday.
