Dr. John Kwakye, the Director of Research at the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), has called on Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and Former President John Dramani Mahama, flagbearers of the NPP and NDC respectively, to publicly announce their plans for turning around the country's economic challenges.
Expressing concern over the current state of Ghana's economy, Dr. Kwakye believes both major political parties owe Ghanaians an apology for the nation's economic struggles.
Their presidential candidates should tell us what they are going to do differently to turn the economy around. Otherwise, they don't deserve our mandate,” he stated on his X platform.
Dr. Kwakye emphasized that both the NPP and NDC need to openly acknowledge their failures over the past 32 years and outline distinct plans for economic recovery to gain the electorate's trust.
“NPP and NDC have woefully failed Ghana over the past 32 years. Their presidential candidates should openly admit the NPP and NDC failings and tell us what they are going to do differently. Otherwise, the electorate should reject them,” he added.
