Addressing a press conference on Sunday, General Secretary of the party, John Boadu, said Mahama has proven to be damaged goods.
He appealed to Ghanaians to reject Mahama come 2020, adding that the NDC should never be an alternative.
“Say No to a redenominated candidate (Mahama) for he never changes. Mahama - the Value is the Same. More importantly, the NDC alternative under Mahama is still scary,” Mr. Boadu said.
He said whiles the NPP builds and develops Ghana’s economy, the NDC has a penchant to destroy and erode the country’s gains.
According to him, the mismanagement under the NDC administration was so enormous that it plunged the nation into huge debts in the early 2000s.
“NDC took us to HIPC but did not have the courage to admit it even though it was under an IMF programme in 2000. It took President Kufuor to have the bulk of Ghana’s debt written off and get Ghana out of the IMF programme. Not only that, NPP, through the focused operations of GNPC, made Ghana an oil rich nation but left office before a single barrel of Jubilee oil could be produced,” the NPP General Secretary claimed.
“Also, the NPP under President Kufuor left office with Ghana’s first credit rating taking us to B . Before that we were not even rated. Credit rating is necessary for both government and business to transact business and borrow internationally.”
He added: “After eight years of NDC economic management our rating went down from B to B-. Yes, B minus under John Mahama! After only 20 months of NPP under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, we have already been upgraded from B- to B.
“Our upgraded credit ratings earned us an oversubscribed Eurobond issue in multiples of seven at the lowest coupon rate and longer maturity Ghana has ever had.”
