The government says claims by former President Mahama that he should be credited for the current economic gains must be ignored as he is a “confused” man.
The former President is reported to have stated that his administration is responsible for the growth of the economy and not the current Akufo-Addo government.
The Minister for Information Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah said Mr. Mahama’s claims are false and should be ignored because the former president is confused.
“In 2011 when the Mills Mahama administration chalked economic growth of 14 percent, the NDC never said credit should be given to President Kufour ……Then he will by extension be saying we should blame him for the reduction in services in 2018 which he refuses to say in this instance just ignore him he is confused,” he told reporters.
The Information Minister added that Former President now the flagbearer of the NDC is only seeking to either criticize the government or take some credit as part of his political enterprise.
