Ghana’s economy to record slowest growth in 22yrs in 2016 – Nana Addo predicts


Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is lamenting how the future of the country is being compromised by the current John Mahama-led government.

According to him, since President Mahama took office, the country’s economy shrinks each and every year.

Nana Akufo-Addo made this known on Thursday, October 13 while addressing students of the Pentecost University College in Accra.

He is on a campaign tour of the Greater Accra Region.

Addressing hundreds of students, the opposition leader appealed to them for a change in the December 7 elections as he claims it will be about their future.

““Usually, when people come to speak to you, they talk about the future. This is because you are the future. But, I am going to say something a bit different. Every year, since John Dramani Mahama became President, our economy has shrunk, and, this year, we are going to have the slowest growth of our economy for 22 years,” Nana Akufo-Addo said.

He argued that four more years for a John Dramani Mahama government “will mean you have no future to look up to”.

He added: “The responsibility for you is not about tomorrow, it is about today. That, together, all of us will make sure that the threat to our future that Mahama represents is removed in December, once and for all, so we can return our country onto the path of progress and prosperity.”

He said the elections will be about the future of students and they will be better off getting rid of the current government.

“If we continue on the path we are on now, let me repeat it, there will be no future for you to inherit. So the task is a simple one. In peace and in dignity, let’s put Mahama aside, let’s bring Akufo-Addo and let’s chart a new direction for Ghana.”
