Mahama – Unemployment Under Akufo-Addo Highest In Ghana’s History


Former President John Dramani Mahama has described the rate of youth unemployment under President Akufo Addo as unprecedented, citing a worsened economy and broken promises.

The National Democratic Congress(NDC) flagbearer calls as unfortunate the sorry-state of affairs under H.E Nana Addo’s government, recalling how the NPP focused their campaign on him and made numerous promises that remain unfulfilled for the citizens.

“I mean today, this is the highest unemployment in the history of Ghana. So it was just [about] say anything to win political power,” he stated.

“NPP came in with a lot of propaganda and they were prepared to promise heaven in order to win political power do a lot of the promises they made to Ghanaians were like just promise anything,” Mahama revealed.

“I mean I was watching a video of John Boadu saying oh! is it about jobs? If it’s about jobs, don’t worry. There’ll be so much [SIC] jobs that Ghanaians can do [and] we will have to go and bring foreigners to come and work to fill the rest of the vacancies,” he added.

One of the major concerns he highlights is the alarming rate of unemployment, which he claims is the highest in Ghana’s history.

World Bank data vindicates John Mahama ‘s views of economy

The recent World Bank report which indicates that inflation pushed 850,000 Ghanaians into poverty supports Mahama’s assertions about the dire economic situation. He believes that President Akufo-Addo’s leadership has been a failure, and he urges Ghanaians to place hope in the NDC for a better future.

Confident in his chances in the 2024 polls, Mahama pledges to rebuild the country’s democracy and economy if elected.
