The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described the New Patriotic Party's view of the State of the Nation as a mere propaganda.
According to the General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, "yesterday's event purported to give a true state of the nation as against that of president Mahama by the flagbearer of the NPP Nana Akuffo Addo showed that opposition had lost touch with the developments on the grounds and were only seeking to score empty political points."
Addressing the media in Accra on Tuesday, March 1, 2016, he said the NPP failed to point out credible and measurable alternatives to areas they challenged.
Nana Akufo-Addo presenting what he termed the Real State of the Nation to counter President John Mahama's address, Nana Addo among others said Ghana is a nation in crisis, discrediting Mahama's assertions that the West African country has undergone massive transformation.
Nana Addo also accused the Mahama administration of systematically "plundering the public purse," thereby turning "our country into devastated economic landscape."
But Asiedu Nketia disagreed with Nana Addo stating that the NDC government had improved the country in all sectors and will continue to deliver on their promise transformational agenda and continue to change live of all Ghanains.
