A former Energy Minister under the erstwhile Kufuor administration, Mr. Kofi Adda has described President John Mahama as a confused president who has no idea how to solve the current energy crisis.
Speaking Monday on Adom FM’s Burning Issues program hosted by Afia Pokua (Vim Lady), Mr. Adda accused the President of wanton abuse of taxpayers’ money and insisted that the government is bereft of ideas to solve the dumsor challenge.
“Now they are asking us to be patient, patience for ignorance, patience for corruption, patience for incompetence, are they coming to steal more money? I don’t think they are serious”, he charged.
“The NDC is in power for six good years and has plunged the country into darkness for four solid years and what have they done to benefit the people of Ghana? That is a shame, how can they do that?” he queried.
He said the NPP under Kufuor initiated so many projects that were to see a long lasting solution to the power problems of the country but the NDC failed to continue with those projects; the result of which has landed the country in total darkness.
“The incompetence clearly shows that you pick people from school, go and put them in the ministry, you pick some people who have not worked before and tell them to manage important things in the country for us, no it won’t work at all”, he noted.
He said the only thing the NDC promised to do in the 2011 budget was to add 200 megawatts, but that has been a mirage.
He said Ghanaians should be smart enough to kick the NDC out to end corruption, lies and darkness in the country.
