The Akufo-Addo-Bawumia-led government has come under fire from former president John Dramani Mahama for abandoning the 40-year national development plan and enacting the Ghana Beyond Aid agenda, which he claims has turned Ghana into a “beggar nation.”
Mahama stated that the Ghana Beyond Aid policy has not been successful during her speech at the 9th Ghana CEO Network Business Cocktail.
“Unfortunately, the present government discarded the 40-year plan and replaced it with a Ghana Beyond Aid plan that has turned Ghana into a beggar nation” Mahama said.
The NDC Flagbearer underlined that the government is to blame for Ghana’s current economic woes.
He said, “There’s no denying that this government is to blame for the economic disaster we are currently experiencing. But we cannot allow the current state of affairs to persist for the benefit of Ghanaians and the future of our beloved nation.
Mahama also voiced worries about the budget for 2024, saying that it imposes onerous taxes that are detrimental to businesses.
In spite of the difficulties, he is optimistic and determined to carry out his 24-hour economic plan in the event that he is elected president in order to boost the economy.
