Former President John Mahama has revealed that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) lost the 2016 general elections to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) because President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo gave promises he can't fulfill.

According to him, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) polluted the minds of the electorate that they would reduced cost of fuel, electricity, water and many others.

"If we had won the 2016 Election I am sure some members of the NPP would have been polluting the minds of the electorate that they would have reduced cost of fuel, electricity, water and many others but now that they are in power we are waiting to see what they would reduce," he said.

 

He said he was honest to Ghanaians about the state of Ghana’s economy but his [Nana Addo] promises swayed votes in his favour.

"It is not for nothing that God asked us to step aside, if God hadn’t let us step aside, Ghanaians would have not appreciated anything that we do because they would say if Nana Akufo-Addo had won, he would have reduced fuel prices, he would have provided employment for everyone, he would have reduced utility tariff," he added.

Mahama appealed to members of the NDC to stop the blame game as to what led to the party's defeat and unite for victory in 2020.

 

He said: "God is never wrong in anything and He made us to lose the 2016 elections for a reason, which has started manifesting for Ghanaians to know those who have Ghanaians at heart in terms of exerting good governance."

He made the appeal in Tamale on Saturday when he addressed party sympathisers after he joined them in a 'Unity Walk' aimed at starting the process of unity in the aftermath of the defeat in the 2016 general elections.

The walk was part of the party's move to ensure peace and unity in the party and capture from the NPP.

The Northern Regional executive of the NDC organised the 'Unity Walk,' for members in the Tamale South, Tamale North, Tamale Central and the Sagnerigu constituencies, which attracted bigwigs of the Party.

They included Mr Julius Debrah, a former Chief of Staff, Mr Haruna Iddrisu, Minority leader in Parliament, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, General Secretary of the NDC, Mr Moses Mabengba, a former Northern Regional Minister, and Alhaji A.B.A Fuseini and Alhaji Inusah Fuseini, members of Parliament for Sagnerigu and Tamale Central.

 

Mahama said: "God knows best and in His wisdom, He said; My sons and daughters step aside and allow them to win, if not Ghanaians will not appreciate the good things you have done".
