Ignore Akuffo Addo-Mahama
President John Mahama has urged Ghanaians not to experiment with NPP presidential candidate Nana Akufo-Addo when they can continue with his tried and tested leadership.
At a rally in Abisem, near Sunyani, in the Brong Ahafo region, the President said he has already began an industrialisation agenda which his main opponent Akufo-Addo is promising to do.
With jobs and the economy taking center stage in the 2016 general elections, the main opposition NPP has promised to industrialise the country.
In one of his promises christened one-district, one factory, the NPP presidential candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has vowed to cite factories across the country’s 216 districts.
But president John Mahama has laughed this off. “You have never built a factory before”, he said.
“A man who has built a factory and another who says he wants to build a factory, our elders say if a tattered man promises to give you clothes, examine him first”, he quoted a Twi proverb.
As a testament to what he described as his proven leadership, the NDC presidential candidate mentioned the factories and plants he has rebuilt in his four-year tenure.
President John Mahama mentioned Komenda Sugar factory, the Elmina Fish Processing plant in the Central region.The Kumasi shoe factory is now producing boots for the military, he said.
