Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has accused former President John Mahama of embarking on a politically mischievous agenda with his recent comments on the performance of the Akufo-Addo led government.
“Any observer of our political landscape will not need to spend so much time in coming to the conclusion that the former President’s comments and actions in recent times are politically mischievous and demonstrative of double standards,” he said.
Mr Mahama recently raised concerns over what he described as the desire of the Akufo-Addo led administration to blame the previous government for its woes.
Speaking in an interview on Accra-based Citi FM, the Minister, who doubles as Member of Parliament for the Ofoase-Ayirebi constituency stated that Mr Mahama is only massaging the truth and hiding behind politics to cause more harm in Ghana.
“It is imperative for the government to responsibly remind Ghanaians and the opposition, especially of its achievements, hence claims by the National Democratic Congress flagbearer that government has not really done enough since assuming office cannot hold.”
Mr Nkrumah said the Akufo-Addo government has remained committed and accountable to Ghanaians since it assumed office.
“Three years on, we remain accountable to the people of Ghana to commit and explain to them what we have achieved so far and what remains outstanding in all humility.
“But when you have the former President or executives of the former administration now seek the moral high ground and preach to the country about how better to manage the economy, we have responsibility to point to them what they recorded vis-à-vis what our records are while we look at ways out there to complete what remains undone of our agenda,” he said.
