According to Ghana’s former president John Dramani Mahama, the country is currently in worse shape than it has ever been during the 4th Republic’s existence.
In his assessment, Ghana is currently dealing with high levels of corruption, problems brought on by poor economic and financial policies, a hungry and irate populace, lost investments, a lack of meaningful reforms, etc.
He made this know in a statement as sighted below;
“Two years ago, for the first time in the history of our country, a President and Government unleashed armed men who brutally killed eight (8) innocent Ghanaians including a child during voting and results collation.
In the last six years, Ghanaians have witnessed a reckless government that has taken a wrecking ball to our economy, leaving it in a very sorry state, rivalling some of the worst economies in the world.
Our dear beloved nation, Ghana, is in a worst state today than at any time in the history of the 4th Republic — high levels of corruption, hardships due to bad economic and financial policies, a hungry and angry people, loss of investments, no credible reforms etc.
But we are a strong people. We are creative and innovative. The Ghanaian does not give up and we won’t give up.
On behalf of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), myself as the 2020 Presidential Candidate, I want to thank all Ghanaians who two years ago sacrificed your time and went to the polls to vote for NDC’s Parliamentary candidates and I.
I also commend all Ghanaians who participated in the election exercise for their help in consolidating our democracy.
I, once again, extend our sympathies to the families of all who lost their lives and to the victims of all forms of violence perpetrated by the insensitive Nana Akufo-Addo administration.
The NDC has pledged that it will investigate these state-sponsored atrocities and apply sanctions to those found culpable. We will provide appropriate compensation for those who have lost lives and limb.”
