Managing Director of STC, Nana Akomea, has rubbished the press conference held by the largest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Monday, August 30 where the party raised a red flag over the governance system of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his government.
According to the party’s Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, Ghanaians are fed up with the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and yearning to kick them out from power.
Sammy Gyamfi made the comments while responding to some statements by the NPP General Secretary, John Boadu on Thursday, August 26 regarding the NDC 2020 Presidential candidate, Ex-President John Dramani Mahama’ Thank You tour after Mr. Mahama criticized the President.
John Boadu Replies Mahama
John Boadu said; “We are really not worried about his distraction because our president is focused on delivering his mandate.
“He has turned his so-called Thank you tour into the election campaign. Yes, he has the right to campaign but he should play by the rules of engagement.
“He has no right to deceive the people of this country by twisting facts.”

Addressing a press conference in Accra on Monday, Sammy Gyamfi replied; “Former President Mahama echoed the sentiments of the vast majority of Ghanaians who feel scandalized by the unbridled corruption and plain thievery that has become the hallmark of the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia NPP government.
“The alarming case of corruption under this government is such that Ghanaians cannot wait to exact act accountability by voting out the NPP after their eight-year tenure in 2024.
“Anything short of that will spell doom for the public purse which will be subjected to further abuse should their mandates be renewed beyond 2024.”
Nana Akomea Rubbishes NDC
But to Nana Akomea, the NDC has lost their moral right to pass judgements about the NPP.
However, admitting that Ghana isn’t yet developed, Nana Akomea stressed the government is working assiduously to improve the living conditions of the citizenry.
Speaking to host Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM’s morning programme ”Kokrokoo”, he noted that if the NDC were capable of developing the country, Ghanaians wouldn’t have voted them out of power.
”We can’t take anything the NDC says seriously”, he stated, adding ”we must admit that we are a third world country. We haven’t reached yet…”
He emphasized that, “the government is not perfect. There are two or three things that are not good . . . but all in all, there’s a lot of measures the government is undertaking and if it all materializes in another two/three years, the living conditions of Ghanaians will improve massively”.
”For them to say we have brought hardship to Ghana, does it mean there was no hardship during the NDC era? If there were no hardships and everything was alright, why would you be voted out of power?” he questioned.
