2024 Election Is Between Ghana and the New Patriotic Party - John Mahama

Former President and flagbearer of the largest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has stated that the upcoming December 7 general elections is a contest between Ghana and the New Patriotic Party(NPP).

In a live telecast on Sunday, 9th June, John Mahama mentioned that, there is a need to rescue the country from the snares of the NPP government.

According to him, the change Ghanaians need is to have a glorious comeback of the former President to steer the affairs of the nation.

John Mahama said, “This election is like no other. It is an election between Ghana and the New Patriotic Party administration. It is an election for change to reset Ghana’s narrative and effect a course correction from our disastrous trajectory.”

"This change is ordained by God. It is a change to relieve our people from the hardship and poverty inflicted by President Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia's reckless administration. That change will put Ghana back on a path of progress and prosperity, enabling us to build the Ghana we want and create well-paying jobs for the youth through the 24-hour economy initiative and many other novel policies to be outdoored in the NDC manifesto.”

The leader of the NDC expressed grave concern over the looming impact of corruption on the Ghanaian economy, hence, it is imperative that the NPP is ousted in order to redeem the country from the economic quagmire.

He said, "This change will also see the most far-reaching and detailed investigation of the many allegations of corruption and scandals levelled against public officials and their families and friends. This change will help to abort this administration's plan to impose a pliant Vice President to cover up for them, thereby escaping the searing scrutiny of accountability."

"However, as I have stated, this hot spotlight of accountability is reserved not only for this administration's appointees. It will also be available to sanction persons in my administration who engage in similar conduct. The same anti-corruption strategies and instruments I shall deploy to measure and punish the NPP government will also apply to my appointees.”

“My dear youth, the best of Ghana is yet to come. I have hope for the future, particularly as I return to the presidency as the experienced, visionary, and decisive leader ready to build the Ghana we want together with you."
