Outspoken lawmaker for Suami constituency, Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu has for the first time admitted that former president John Dramani Mahama handed over a good and stable economy to President Akufo-Addo before leaving office in 2016.
According to the Majority Leader, things were getting better when Mahama was handing over power to the Nana Addo-led administration despite the frequent power cuts widely known as “dumsor” challenges he faced.
“Ghana was in a better state when Kufuor was exiting that it is now, with all the Mahama government’s dumsor, the country was rising when he handed over power,” he told a gathering of party faithful in his constituency over the weekend.
On the upcoming 2024 elections, he tasked party faithful to close ranks and do all it takes to achieve a historic third consecutive term in office, which aim the party hass dubbed ‘breaking the eight.’
“We thought 2020 was going to be easy for us, but let us admit that it will be a hard fight and we know God will not abandon us because if you hear about the good news from Washington and the IMF, things will continue to get better,” he stressed.
