Mahama will beat Akufo-Addo if elections were held today- Kwakye Ofosu

A former Deputy Communications Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu says former President John Mahama would defeat President Akufo-Addo should elections be held today.

Kwakye Ofosu believes the Nana Addo-led government has woefully failed Ghanaians and has nothing to show for the over one year it has been in office.

He said the NDC increased the Ghana’s debt stock to GHc87 billion within an eight-year period but the NPP government, on the other hand, has, in less than two years, bloated the figure by about half of the NDC figure.

“In terms of concrete measurable additions to Ghana’s development, Mahama is far ahead. And, I can authoritatively say that if elections were held today, trust me, Mahama would thrash Akufo Addo hands down”, he bragged.

Kwakye Ofosu was speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen on Monday following John Mahama’s description of the Akufo-Addo as “super incompetent.”

Former President John Mahama, while addressing members of the opposition NDC in Wa over the weekend after the party’s unity walk, took on the Akufo-Addo government, saying sarcastically thatr the governing party might need a miracle from the controversial pastor, Daniel Obinim, to overcome its super incompetence, a remark that has not been taken kindly by the NPP.

But the former Deputy Communications Minister who believes Mr Mahama was charitable with his words indicated that he would have described the Akufo Addo administration as “hopelessly incompetent”.
