Akufo-Addo and NPP thought governing Ghana was easy – Mahama teases
Former President John Mahama has said that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) while in opposition thought governance was easy and that now that they are in power, the difference between the governance of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and that of the NPP is clear for all to see.
Addressing a delegation of women from the Anlo Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), former President Mahama was full of hope that the NDC will be returned to power in 2024 given the poor performance of the NPP.

”I know that things are very hard in Ghana today. It’s not easy at all! At the time we were in power, they ( NPP) thought it was an easy thing. They didn’t know what it was like to handle a country like Ghana.
Today, they have learnt their experience. And so don’t lose hope. I am sure that the people of Ghana have seen the difference between the NDC and the current administration. In 2024, what will they do? They will return NDC back to come and continue the good works [ it started],” he said to loud applause.
There is widespread discontent among many Ghanaians due to consistent price hikes in petroleum prices and general goods and transport fares. There have been calls for the President to sack his Finance Minister. But in an address by the President on the economic crisis, he gave no indication of sacking him.
