Mahama Labels Current Administration as “Biggest Political Scam” in Ghana’s History

Nalerigu, North East Region, Ghana – John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has criticized the current administration led by President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, labeling it as the “biggest political scam” in Ghana’s history.

Mahama made these remarks during his “Building the Ghana We Want” tour in Nalerigu, where he urged Ghanaians to make informed decisions in the upcoming elections on December 7, 2024. He questioned whether anyone would vote for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) after enduring over seven years of severe hardship under the current administration.

“The Akufo-Addo/Bawumia administration is the biggest political scam in the history of the 4th republic. Ghanaians are called upon again on 7th December 2024 to exercise their mandate and make a choice. And after what we have gone through in 7 and a half years, it surprises me [that] anybody will still go to the ballot box and say he’s going to vote for NPP again,” Mahama said.

He acknowledged that those who have benefited financially under the current government might still support the NPP, but he emphasized that the majority of Ghanaians have experienced a decline in their quality of life during the past seven and a half years.

Mahama’s comments highlight the political tensions and debates surrounding the upcoming elections, as both major parties seek to persuade voters with their visions and records.
