Mismanagement is the cause of country's woes - Mensah

Abesim (B/A), Nov. 14, GNA - The Minority Leader in Parliament, Mr J.H. Mensah said at the weekend that Ghana will face much more difficulties if the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is returned to power.

"Ghanaians have suffered enough during the 19 long years of PNDC/NDC mismanagement, which has brought about poverty and unemployment and it will be suicidal for Ghanaians to endorse this mismanagement," he said.

Mr Mensah, MP for Sunyani East, who was addressing an NPP fund-raising rally at Abesim near Sunyani, added that bad economic policies of the government have led to the dwindling fortunes of workers and farmers.

He said the NPP has the right calibre of men and women capable of reversing the negative economic trend the country is experiencing but this would not happen if the party is not in government.

Mr Mensah said Vice President J.E. Atta Mills' promise to continue from where President Rawlings would leave off is enough sign that he has nothing new to offer the country.

Mr Kwadwo Adjei-Darko, MP for Sunyani West said NPP would do everything possible to prevent electoral malpractice on polling day.

He said some voters from Abesim, which is in Sunyani East constituency are being asked by the NDC to vote at the Sunyani College of Renewable Resources which is in the Sunyani West constituency.

He warned such people not to make any attempt to cast their vote at that centre since they would be found out.
