Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah

The Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has questioned the credibility of former President John Mahama in achieving his party’s manifesto promises.

According to the Minister and Member of Parliament for Ofoase Ayiribe, if Mr. Mahama’s track records are anything to go by, he cannot be trusted in fulfilling the National Democratic Congress’ manifesto promises.

Responding to questions at the weekly press conference held in Kumasi on Tuesday, September 8, 2020, Mr. Nkrumah stressed that the 2020 general elections is going to be about the credibility and track records of the flagbearers of the two leading political parties in the country.

“I think that the question of manifestos and promises must be looked at very simply from two perspectives. First of all, the credibility of the promises that are being made and then secondly the how. When you take the credibility, the good thing is that for the first time the two persons who are the frontrunners in this elections have both had the opportunity to occupy the office of President.

“So in looking at the credibility of the promises they are making, one ought to first look at their track records when they were in office and their positions on some of the matters they are speaking to today. This will help anybody who want to do an analysis to understand whether or not you can take any of these promises as credible,” he said.

His comments comes at the back of the NDC’s 2020 manifesto launch that took place yesterday. Dubbed, the “People’s Manifesto: Jobs, Prosperity and more”, the 143 paged document provides Mr. Mahama and the NDC an opportunity to be reelected into power on December 7, 2020.

However, Mr. Nkrumah stressed that the levels of mismanagement under the former President does not provide the NDC and it’s flagbearer an opportunity to govern the country after December.

“If you have somebody who during his period run down the Ghanaian economy, went to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for a bailout and as a result could not employ young people when they were graduating from school. You recall the graduate unemployment associations that were formed. You recall the cancellation of allowances because of economic crisis and the argument that even if they will vote against us they should vote against us. And today this person comes back and says that he is going to create one million jobs. Does it sound to anybody like a credible promise?,” he added.
