Mahama cannot help Ghana; he is clueless – Nana Addo

“The Finance Minister, Seth Terkper, told us that he is preparing to tax pensions and allowances. And his President, two days later, stated that they were not going to do anything like that. If this is not confusion in his government, then I don’t know what it is," Nana Akufo-Addo said.

His comments come on the back of controversy surrounding new tax proposals announced recently by finance minister Seth Terkper.

Addressing a packed town hall meeting in Modena, Italy on Saturday on day-2 of his visit to that country, the NPP flagbearer said “Mismanagement, corruption and incompetence have brought us to where we are today. When the word ‘incompetent’ is used to describe his government, the President gets very upset. But this week we have seen another example.

“The Finance Minister, Seth Terkper, told us that he is preparing to tax pensions and allowances. And his President, two days later, stated that they were not going to do anything like that. If this is not confusion in his government, then I don’t know what it is; and if this is not a sign of incompetence, then you would have to tell me what incompetence means,” Nana Addo said.

The NPP flagbearer therefore called on party members to work hard and unseat the Mahama government.

“We have to change these statistics. We cannot continue, whilst other people are prospering, to go down the hill. We need to have a change in Ghana. John Mahama cannot help us,” he said.

Nana Addo noted that when elected into power, he would focus on expanding industry and modernising Ghana’s agriculture, adding that: “These are going to be the main themes for the next four years.”
