2024 Election: Ghana is broke, I’m measured in my promises – Mahama
John Dramani Mahama, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, has indicated that he is taking his commitments seriously ahead of the 2024 general elections.
Mahama stated that the current status of the economy prevents him from making big promises.
He made these remarks while addressing NDC supporters in Hohoe, Volta Region.
“Given the country’s current crisis, I am cautious about making promises.” We will show you the records and finances of this country, and you will see the damage that the New Patriotic Party administration has done to our country; the economy is bankrupt.”
Mr. Mahama also stated that the incoming NDC administration will provide monthly allowances of GH¢1,000 to all Assembly members.
He stated that paying the allowances will cost the nation GH¢80 million annually.
Mr. Mahama concluded his two-day “Building Ghana we want together” visit to the Volta Region in Hohoe, stating that the President’s office had a budget of about GH¢2 billion alone. We will lower the President’s office expenses to compensate Assembly members.”
