Former President of Ghana,John Dramani Mahama has observed that Ghana deserves better than the tension associated with the parochial style of governance under Nana Akufo-Addo led administration
The National Democratic Congress’ (NDC’s) leader made this known in a post addressing recent issues in Ghana and the tension created by the NPP administration with the various arrest of people who do not tow the line of government’s thinking.
The former President of Ghana said what Ghana needs at the moment as a country a democracy in which they feel at peace to go about their daily duties without fear of arrest, harassment or death because it imperative that citizens are given the opportunity to express themselves on issues ongoing in the country.
He noted that under the NPP administration most business people who are perceived to be against the government and its ideologies have lost their businesses just because they do not support government and that should never be the case.
The former President’s post read “The NDC believes in Ghana’s future. We have always had a vision to build a country that will be a Regional Powerhouse, providing economic and social opportunities for all Ghanaians and not just a few relatives and friends.
As leader and flagbearer of this great party, I come to you, the good people of Ghana, and on the occasion of our 28th Anniversary, to once again confirm that the next NDC and John Dramani Mahama administration will guarantee you a stable, vibrant and safedemocracy.
A democracy in which Ghanaians feel at peace to go about their daily duties without fear of arrest, harassment or death.
A democracy in which Ghanaians can express themselves freely without fear of having their radio stations closed.
A Ghana in which businessmen and women are not afraid of losing their businesses because they are perceived not to be supporters of the governing party.
Ghana needs new jobs, new businesses, new ways of listening to one another and a new sense of unity. Ghanaians are tired of the tensions associated with the parochial governance style of Nana Akufo-Addo”.
