The Flag bearer of the NDC, H.E. John Dramani Mahama has expressed great dissappointment in the way Nana Addo and his NPP Government are handleing the affairs of the nation. The former President in a post on his official facebook page expressed worries about the decisions taken by the Government with particular reference to the MCC.
Below is the post.
Soon, I will be sharing my position on the state of our struggling nation with the good people of Ghana.
But allow me to say that as someone who took over from President JEA Mills of blessed memory and the Ghana Compact 2 negotiations with the Millennium Challenge Corporation and the US Government, I am deeply disappointed in Nana Akufo-Addo for his handling of the Compact.
Fellow Ghanaians, we are all deeply disappointed because of the self-serving decisions that were taken, the deliberate acts perpetuated with the crude support of the Flagstaff House in the ECG Concessionaire Agreement that has led us to where we are today. This was absolutely needless and could have been avoided.
I have just noted a decision by the MCC to withdraw $190 million from the Compact funding. It’s a sad day for us all. This money was meant to improve the efficiency of our electricity utility corporation.
Let me emphasise that, all these shady happenings were avoidable if the right decisions, with the future development of Ghana in mind, were taken, and not parochial decisions that reflect the sad and worsening situation of state capture that we are experiencing under Akufo-Addo.
