Former President, John Dramani Mahama says the hardship that Ghanaians are going through under the Akufo-Addo government is beyond imagination, considering the lofty promises the President and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) made ahead of the 2016 general elections.
He said the NPP created a false sense that it could out-perform the NDC in government but after winning the last elections, the policies of the government have resulted in untold hardship, with every sector of the economy taking a hit.
Addressing separate meetings with delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Asokwa, Oforikrom and Manhyia North constituencies as part of his flagbearership campaign tour of the Ashanti Region, Mr Mahama entreated President Akufo-Addo to listen to the cry and anguish of the people.
He said the President should desist from saying that he would not be responding to presidential aspirants, adding that the aspirants are just carriers of messages of suffering Ghanaians.
“So he should listen before it is too late because Ghanaians are really suffering”, he said.
Mr Mahama appealed to the NDC delegates to vote massively for him in the upcoming flagbearership elections to enable the NDC win back power from the NPP.
He said when elected in 2020, he will work hard to provide jobs and reduce the high cost of living in the country.
