Women suffering under Mahama – Rebecca Akufo-Addo

Ghanaians, especially women, are “really suffering” under the government of President John Mahama, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, wife of opposition New Patriotic Party flag bearer Nana Akufo-Addo, has said.

Speaking to party supporters in Jasikan in the Buem constituency of the Volta Region as part of the party’s campaign launch in that part of the country, Mrs Akufo-Addo said: “We want a change in government this year so that Ghana can move forward. We are really suffering in Ghana. Ghana is a rich country but bad leadership has made the country poor. We just need a leader to come and bring prosperity to all Ghanaians and that leader is Nana Akufo-Addo.”

Mrs Akufo-Addo said women were bearing the harshest brunt of the suffering under the Mahama administration and, therefore, urged them to vote for her husband to come and change things. “If you vote for Akufo-Addo, I’ll make sure I also play my role as First Lady to bring prosperity and comfort to our women,” she assured.

Mrs Akufo-Addo said an Akufo-Addo government will implement the Free SHS programme as well as restore allowances for teacher and nurse trainees as promised by her husband.

“Let no one deceive you that Nana Akufo-Addo can’t do it,” she said.
