The National Democratic Congress (NDC) says the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party has no moral right to criticize President John Dramani Mahama’s leadership.
Addressing a press conference at the party’s headquarters in Accra, Tuesday, the NDC accused Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of not being able to maintain peace in his party.
Their accusations come as a response to the New Patriotic Party(NPP)’s true State of the Nation’s Address. The NPP slammed President John Dramani Mahama for presenting a ‘half- true’ State of the Nation Address.
The party accused the government of over-pricing the costs of projects, citing Smarttys deal, ENI deal, and the expansion of the Ridge Hospital among others as examples.
But the NDC has debunked this and cited a corruption index report by, civil society organization, Transparency International which according to the party scored government high marks for fighting corruption.
The party said President John Dramani Mahama has proven he is a responsible leader by taking the blame for the energy crisis and economic hardship and solving them.
Without tackling much of the accusations by the NPP made against the government, the NDC also accused the NPP of engaging tribal politics, making reference to Atta Akyea’s comments on citing of a university at Somanya.
The MP for Abuakwa North had argued that the university should have been cited in the Akyem area because it has a larger number of residents live there.
They also accused the NPP of setting up Non-Governmental Organisations to the malign government.
