Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, the majority leader, asserted that the NDC administration is ineffective at managing the country despite the current economic crisis it is experiencing.
Without taking into account COVID-19, he claimed that the Akufo-Addo administration was reforming Ghana’s economy, which saw growth of 7.0 percent in terms of ECOWAS GDP.
The majority leader claimed that because there was no COVID-19, the Russia-Ukraine war, the Akufo-Addo government outperformed the John Mahama administration in his final debate on the 2023 SoNA.
“Mr speaker in 2019 the ECOWAS GDP averaged 3.5 per cent under Akufo-Addo the economy grew by 6.5 per cent which means that in the first 3 years of Akufo-Addo’s administration before COVID-19 struck GDP growth at an average of 7.0 per cent as compared to your shambolic performance of 3.9 per cent.
“…Mr Speaker so the management of the economy you people (NDC) don’t come anywhere close.”
He continued by saying that the economy is recovering, particularly in the manufacturing and industrial sectors, which have seen growth of 4.8% during the previous three years.
