It appears former president John Mahama is not going to slow down in his crusade against the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as his party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) inches closer to electing new executives and a flag bearer for the 2020 elections.
In a recent comment, John Mahama accused the New Patriotic Party of lying their way to power.
According to him, the current state of Ghanaians is a manifestation that the NPP were not honest in their political campaign prior to the 2016 elections.
One of the key messages of the NPP, ahead of the 2016 elections was to stabilize the economy as the cedi was performing badly against major trading currencies.
With both the NPP and NDC trying to topple the other with claims for and against the performance of the cedi, Dr. Bawumia was the most vociferous critic of the NDC government, taking them on for mismanaging the economy and failing to make the cedi competitive.
“You can engage in all the propaganda you want but if the fundamentals are weak the exchange rate will expose you,” the former deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana said at the time.
As at October 4, the cedi was trading at 4 cedis, 79 pesewas.
In an obvious jab to the NPP, Mahama said “You can engage in, and tell all the lies to win political power, when you are in government the reality of peoples’ lives will expose you.”
John Mahama is currently touring the country to campaign in his bid to return to power in 2020.
