The 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, says President Mahama’s tenure of office has been nothing short of a disaster for the country, resulting in unprecedented levels of hardship and suffering amongst Ghanaians.
With President Mahama urging Ghanaians to ignore Nana Akufo-Addo’s “try me” appeal and not to experiment with a new President in 2016, the NPP flagbearer noted that “the experience of the person there now has been a disastrous experience for our country.”
In view of this “disastrous experience”, Nana Akufo-Addo asked: “So what is the purpose of the continuity? Are we going to continue the disaster? Is that what we want to do? We want to get rid of the disaster, and bring in a man with new ideas and a fresh direction for our nation.”
The NPP flagbearer was addressing hundreds of residents at Nandom, on Saturday, September 3, 2016, on the first day of his 2-day tour of the Upper West region, when he made these remarks.
Appealing to residents, and Ghanaians to have confidence in him, Nana Akufo-Addo assured that “I am not coming to fill my pockets with your money. I am coming to work to straighten up our country and bring it back to prosperity again.”
