Focus on the bad economy and corruption under Nana and forget Mahama's harmless statement, Sammy

Mahama's "do or die" pronouncement is met with mixed Ghanaians, mostly sympathizers of the ruling party, see this as a statement that portrays the leader of the largest opposition party in Ghana as being violent. To them, the statement should retracted by the former president since it tends to insight passionate supporters of the National Democratic Congress to see this to mean being violent and lawless in the next general election.

 To the opposition, however, this is a harmless statement that was meant to urge the party to be more vigilant at the polling stations during the 2024 General Elections. Mahama himself has said his statement is an idiomatic expression that was made not to ferment troubles and disturb the peace the country enjoys. Sammy Gyemfi to buttress what his 2020 presidential candidate has been saying, stressed that what Mahama said was self-explanatory and only people who try to cause mischief will interpret it to mean something bad .

On Metro TV this morning, the national communications director of the NDC, says there are too many hardships in the country to shift attention from to a harmless statement made. According to the outspoken communicator, the economy of the country is in bad shape and prices of goods and services have gone up. "For me, we need to move from this issue and focus on more important bread and butter issues, as we speak our economy is shameless, unemployment is on the rise, cost of living is unbearable for the vast majority of Ghanaians", he said.

Sammy Gyemfi also added that the level of corruption in the country is very high and cited the results of the research conducted by CDD Ghana. Sammy Gyemfi bemoaned the lack of trust of Ghanaians in the president's ability to fight corruption in the country.

Corruption is on the rise, 62% of Ghanaians do not believe that president Akuffo Addo can fight corruption, the auditor general says that financial irregularities in the public sector have increased from GHs 700 million in 2016 to over Ghs12 billion in 2020", Sammy Gyemfi added.

He, therefore, urged that the focus should be on discussion of the hardships in the country and not the harmless statement made by Mahama.
