Oppong Nkrumah to Mahama: We’ve delivered on campaign promises

Former president, John Mahama on Monday took a swipe at the current government for failing to deliver on its election promises five years after wining elections

The government has delivered on most of its promises prior to the 2016 Elections, the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has said.

The former president John Mahama on Monday took a swipe at the current government for failing to deliver on its election promises five years after winning elections.

However, reacting to the development on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Tuesday (3 May), Oppong Nkrumah said Mahama is playing cheap politics.

“The campaign was prosecuted on the promise of Free Senior high School, over one million beneficiaries out there, it is something that every Ghanaian who is being honest see clearly in the face, the campaign was prosecuted on the promise of bringing back economic growth.

“Average growth in the first three years of the Akufo Addo administration is 7%, last year when we started recovering from COVID 5.4%, it is the COVID year that took us down. This year the forecast is quite clear that we are going to be doing lots of 5% and we will be going back to 7% shortly.”

“The campaign was prosecuted on the promise that we are going to get Ghana out of the IMF and onto self-sustainability and today the evidence is out there that we got Ghana out of the fund programme on the path of sustainability… the evidence is quite clear that a significant proportion of what was promised in the 2016 campaign has been achieved,” he said.
