A social democrat condemning 'freebies' is problematic - Gabby

A leading member of the New Patriotic Party(NPP), Gabby Asare Otchere Darko has obsrved that there is a problem with the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama.

According to him, John Dramani Mahama who is the leader of a social democratic party but criticizes the government for providing interventions to lessen the plight of the people is at the opposite ends ideals of his own party.

“@JDMahama .@NAkufoAddo when a presidential candidate of a so-called social democratic party is comfortable criticising the president for providing “freebies” of water and electricity to citizens in these difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic then you know there is a problem,” Gabby Otchere Darko said in a tweet.

His comment comes on the back of the former President and leader John Dramani Mahama’s claims that the government needs to empower the Ghanaian rather than provide them with freebies.

“If you say everybody should stay at home and we will give you everything free, free; free this, free that, all the countries that have developed, they didn’t develop like that,” John Dramani Mahama said when he interacted with a group of Contractors.
