Ghanaians will experience the driest Christmas under NPP – Mahama

John Mahama predicts tough Christmas for Ghanaians this year under NPP

According to him, the NPP administration has plunged the country into “excruciating economic difficulties”.

He made the statement while speaking to some supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the Trade Fair Centre.

Mahama said this year’s Christmas will not be as exciting as previous years and warned that it could be the driest in the history of the country.


“…most Ghanaian families will go through the driest Christmas they have ever experienced in the history of Ghana,” the ex-president said.

He further stated that the NDC will “continue to put pressure on this government to push back on their insensitive economic policies.”

Mahama also reiterated his intention to abolish the temporary double track system being implemented by the NPP administration.


According to him, there was very little engagement with stakeholders before the policy was implemented.

“I will also work hard to abolish the double track system in the shortest possible time. We will do this by investing massively in the expansion of school infrastructure such as additional classroom blocks and dormitories and the completion of 200 Day schools popularly known as E-blocks that we started to enable our children attend school at the same time and have adequate contact hours with their teachers,” he added.

Mahama officially submitted his nomination forms on Monday, as he aims to become the NDC’s flagbearer for the 2020 general elections.
