Former President Mahama has urged President Akufo-Addo to be considerate about the sufferings and plights of Ghanaians and work to help them.

In his May Day message to all Ghanaians, the 2020 NDC flagbearer entreated the president not to be unperturbed about the untold suffering he has brought on Ghanaians through the increase in taxes.

Mahama intimated that President Akufo-Addo has not helped Ghanaians by raising taxes but failing to raise the salaries of workers.

On a May Day, where workers are being celebrated for their work and service, Mahama believes Akufo-Adoo needs to look in the direction of the citizenry and out of compassion lend a helping hand.

Mahama also used the opportunity to promise Ghanaians of the NDC’s determination to bring hope and prosperity to all Ghanaians when they eventually take over the affairs of the nation. He also bemoaned the onset of “Dumsor”, the irregular supply of water and gross poverty that has left many people impoverished.

Mahama also urged Akufo-Addo to allow for the freedom of expression and refrain from impeding the media from carrying out the true mandate of speaking truth to power and criticizing the works of his government.

Read His Full Statement Below:

Today is May Day, Workers Day.
Unfortunately, in Ghana, we are going through unbearable hardship and suffering from an ever-increasing cost of living.
Incidentally, an increase in existing taxes & introduction of new ones, and which take effect from today, May Day, is leading to steep rises in the prices of fuel, food & every basic item.
This will worsen the plight of citizens even further. This is in addition to power outages and shortage of water in many homes, cities and municipalities.
On this May Day 2021, with hardship set to worsen, I call on His Excellency President Nana Akufo-Addo to stretch a hand of cooperation to all Ghanaians, able to play a role in rescuing our dear nation from the abyss it is falling.
On this occasion of May Day, as I salute the suffering workers of Ghana and all Ghanaians, let me also take the opportunity to wish the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, well and urge him to take the measures needed to bring relief to suffering Ghanaians.
In addition, I encourage the President and his close associates to seize the occasion to create an atmosphere that is more tolerant of criticism and devoid of intimidation in order for the media, CSOs and individuals to freely express themselves and contribute to national discourse.
We in the NDC stand ready to play our part in offering constructive suggestions that will bring Ghana back onto a path of growth and prosperity.
Fraternal Greetings on this May Day!
God bless our Homeland Ghana!
