Akufo-Addo accuses Mahama of sharing cars for votes

He also accused the president of "starving" Ghanaians only to show up in election year to share goodies to win political power.


Akufo-Addo launched the accusation on the president when he took his 'Arise for Change' tour to his home region: Eastern Region.

“In 2012, they shared so many items. It was our taxpayer’s money that was used for this. That is why we are suffering today. It has started again,” Akufo Addo said on Wednesday.

"This year, they are distributing (Toyota Landcruiser) Prados. They will starve you for 4 years and only show up to bring you goodies a few months to elections so you vote for them. After taking the goodies, and voting for them, the hunger returns and will be worse than what you experienced in the past,” he added.

Akufo-Addo appealed to voters to support his bid for the presidency, promising to bring development to every part of the country.

"Ghanaians have suffered too much. God did not put us on this rich land for us to be poor. It is bad leadership that makes us poor. We are coming to change the circumstances of our country. We will institute measures to bring relief to the Ghanaian," he said."I am not into politics to steal the monies of poor Ghanaians or to be at the receiving end of bribes. I came to put the little wisdom and knowledge Ghana has given to me to help develop Ghana. So this year, everyone should ride on the back of the Elephant, so we can bring development to every part of the country,” he concluded.
