"If Having Sense Means Cancelling Teacher & Nurses Trainee Allowances,I Prefer NPP's Sense" - Nana Addo Throws Back At Mahama

The President of Ghana and flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo has reacted to former President John Mahama's recent comment that implied the government was not implying "common sense" to running the country. 

The flagbearer of the opposition NDC,John Dramani Mahama during one of his campaign tours in the Ketu South Constituency of the Volta Region said: "government is planning and government is common sense and that is what the NDC was doing,we were using planning and common sense."

He also suggested that the current administration should have applied common sense in fixing the financial sector crisis rather than using GH¢ 22billion to "kill" nine banks and more than 400 other financial institutions which ,according to him,could have been saved with just GH¢9 Billion. 

In response to what the former President said earlier, during the NPP's Manifesto launching, Nana Addo threw back at Mahama. 

"If having sense means cancelling teacher trainee and nurses allowances is a sense, I'm happy that the NPP has another concept of sense.

If having sense means recording the worst economic management statistics of modern times,the lowest rate of growth of the 50 years,I'm happy that the NPP has another concept of sense," the President said. 

He also said,"Having sense in the NPP means being able to take an economy growing at 3.4% to an economy that grew,on the average, for three successive years,at least,7% before the pandemic and was rightly acknowledged as one of the best-performing economies not just in Africa's,but also in the world. 

"Having sense in the NPP means executing the programme for Planting for Foods and Jobs,which has led to the revival of Ghanaian agriculture from the doldrums of the NDC years,bringing in its wake,bumper harvest and affordable food prices in our markets and exports of significant quantities of foodstuffs to our neighbours. 

" Having sense in the NPP means implementing policies, which,according to the latest Ghana Living Standards Survey,has resulted in the declining unemployment rate from 11.9 percent in 2015 to 7.3 percent in 2019".

To him,he prefers the NPP's sense than to go for the logic of the NDC.

"I'm happy with and prefer the NPP's sense," he said.
