THE ECONOMY IS BROKE UNDER THE NPP GOV’T – Mahama

The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has emphasized his cautious approach to promises in the lead-up to the 2024 general elections, citing the current economic challenges as a limiting factor for grand commitments.

Speaking to NDC supporters in Hohoe, Volta Region, Mahama stated, “…I am being very measured in the promises that I make because we all know the crisis in which this country has been plunged [into]. We will show you the books and finances of this country, and you will realize the harm that the New Patriotic Party administration has done to this country; the economy is broke.”

Mahama also revealed that the next NDC government, if elected, would institute a monthly allowance of GH¢1,000 for all Assembly members. He estimated that this initiative would incur an annual cost of GH¢80 million.

Additionally, he pledged to reduce the budget of the President’s office, currently exceeding GH¢2 billion, to fund the proposed allowances for Assembly members. The announcement came during Mahama’s two-day “Building the Ghana we want together” tour in the Volta Region.
