Mahama has made Ghanaians poorer – Boakye Agyarko

President John Mahama and his governing National Democratic Congress have made Ghanaians poorer, Mr Boakye Agyarko, Policy Adviser to the flag bearer of the main opposition New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo, has said.

“It cannot be disputed that President John Mahama has made Ghanaians poorer. The prices of everyday items have skyrocketed under John Mahama,” Mr Boakye Agyarko told journalists at a press conference on Monday, 19 September.

“The price of a gallon of petrol has gone from GHS3 to GHS16, bread has moved from GHS2 to GHS7, milk from GHS1 to GHS3, kenkey from 30p to GHS2, fish from 50p to GHS2, sachet water from 5p to 20p, and a bag of cement from GHS12 to GHS32.”

He added: “It is evident that the John Mahama government is not one that can be trusted to put people first. A government that puts corruption first can only pay lip service to putting Ghanaians first.”
