John Dramani Mahama, flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress, has admonished Ghanaians not to lose hope and trust in the next government he presents for the citizenry.

He says although the mistrust in the political class makes every assurance being given by politicians doubtful, the Ghanaian people should look beyond what they are experiencing today and dream of a Ghana desired by all.

During his encounter with the media Sunday, July 07, 2024, the former President said “I can relate to the recent cynicism and massive mistrust in our body politics because the current government has been undeserving of your trust! The challenges of today might seem insurmountable, but I urge you to look beyond the present and dream with me of a RESET Ghana—The Ghana we all want, where your talents and hard work determine your success.”

He said he is also counting on his faith in God and the creativity of Ghanaians to reset Ghana back to the path of glory, having undergone an almost eight years of abysmal leadership under the NPP.

He says the period of rule by the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia administration has sunk the country into a “serious economic abyss” which sums up the verdict of this government, expressing hope in the Ghanaian ingenuity and his confidence in God to set Ghana back on track.

Mahama noted “the unprecedented levels of poverty, unemployment, deterioration in livelihoods, and social inequity”, saying they “have exposed the dubious strategy” of the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia administration which has resorted to “hiding incompetence under slogans.”

He said the hiding behind slogans “confirms without hesitation that the disruptive and hasty experimentation with the lives of the Ghanaian people was underpinned by naïve exuberance, arrogance, and selfishness.”

“I am referring to economic challenges that have shattered the dreams of our youth and the aspirations of the vulnerable. No one has been spared—children, adults, including the middle class, and the elderly have all been hit very hard,” he added.

John Mahama, nonetheless, noted that there is hope to turn things around, trusting in Ghanaians’ creativity and his faith in God.

“Fellow Ghanaians, notwithstanding these challenges, I am imbued with optimism and a steadfast belief in my God almighty and the amazing creativity of Ghanaians to assure you, tonight, that together, we shall turn this tide.

“We shall turn this government’s destructive tide into positive and progressive waves—waves that will reverberate in every home and corner of our country and across the globe, demonstrating that Ghana has once again gotten back on track,” he remarked.
