The New Patriotic Party (NPP), which is in power, has been urged by the minority in parliament to accept responsibility for its failings.
Legislators for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) claim that John Dramani Mahama, the former president of Ghana, is not to blame for the country’s current economic catastrophe.
John Jinapor, the minority party’s spokesperson on energy, stated in a statement that media allegations claiming to be from the World Bank’s country director that shoddy power purchase deals had saddled the nation with enormous debts in the energy industry were untrue.
The attention of the Minority in Parliament has been drawn to a Daily Guide publication with the headline “Mahama Energy Sector Agreements Drowning Ghana-World Bank.
A careful reading of the story will reveal that at no point did the World Bank country director mention or blame the former President for the current economic mess the country finds itself.
