The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed complete disgust at the desperate attempt by the survey conducted by the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) a renowned policy think tank to undermine its credibility by labeling it as an appendage of the opposition parties.

The survey which covered the period of July 2 to 18 indicated that Ghanaians are worried about their economic conditions which they argue might pose a threat to their existence.

The survey was conducted from a sample size of 2,400 adult Ghanaians cutting across 163 districts and 291 towns and villages.

Furthermore, over 7 in 10 Ghanaians describe the current economic condition as ‘very’ or ‘fairly’ bad; and 65 % describe their personal living conditions in similar terms, the survey revealed.

But speaking to Accra-based Kasapa FM, National Organizer of the NDC, Kofi Adams who claimed President Mahama has done more in the power sector than any other government, stated that the NDC has over the years never expected the CDD to give a positive assessment of the party.

He accused CDD and other civil society groups of pursuing agenda to promote the cause of the NPP.

He said, while internationally acclaimed bodies such as Transparency International has scored the Mahama -led government high marks in fighting corruption, the CDD is rather busily running the government down.

He said a recent survey conducted on CDD shows that it is an opaque think thank group that cannot be trusted.

According to him, “We in the NDC don’t work with the CDD because they are an NPP affiliated group; we have long held this view. We’ve always insisted they are bias towards NPP. If you take a look at their report, it is not different from what Nana Akufo Addo says when he goes on campaign; their report is essentially a repeat of NPP views.”
