Ghanaians are suffering under your government – Otokunor to Nana Addo

The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Boamah Otokunor, has said Ghanaians are facing "painful economic hardship" under the administration of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

According to him, the youth unemployment rate has soared due to collapsed businesses under Nana Addo and the NPP government.

He said the NPP created a false sense that it could out-perform the NDC in government but after winning the 2016 polls, the policies of the NPP government have resulted in untold hardship, with every sector of the economy taking a hit.

He, however, urged the government to ensure the creation of sustainable jobs for the thousands of unemployed youth rather than "dismissing thousands from post and putting others in their place," adding that it "does not create or sustain decent jobs. It simply gives employment to some and unemployment to others."


Speaking on Accra-based Kingdom FM, he pointed out that despite the promises by the NPP to give Ghanaians a comfortable life, many people are worse off now than they were before the last elections.

He stressed that the government has failed to reduce the cost of utilities in spite of its pre-election campaign promises to that effect.

He urged Ghanaians to vote for the NDC in the 2020 elections "to enable the party to continue with the good works it started."
