The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), has
said President John Mahama’s State of the
Nation address was disappointing just as it had
predicted.
President Mahama today [Thursday], delivered
his final State of the Nation address to
Parliament as his first term comes to a close.
Speaking to Citi News, the Acting Chairman of
the NPP, Freddie Blay, who witnessed the
nearly four-hour address, said the President
said nothing, describing it as mediocre and
disappointing.
“I must say from my own experience that I
have heard a lot of State of the Nation
Addresses, but this from my perspective is the
most disappointing… it is the most
disappointing State of the Nation address I
have heard in this house.”
Mr. Blay said there was very little substance in
the President’s presentation, explaining that
every government undertakes development
projects.
He added that comparing the revenue available
to the NDC administration and what it had
done over the years, it cannot compare to
former President’s administration although he
had little funding.
“Considering what amount has come into the
NDC government led by him [Mahama] within
these eight years, and what has come out of it
percentage wise and compare that to Kufuor’s
regime, as to what came into his hands, you
will see that percentage wise, his [Kufuor]
government did far better.”
Mr. Blay also criticized Mahama’s presentation
on the state of the economy which he said had
no details on key components like employment
and job creation.
“Facts and figures, this is what should be most
important to us… he spent very little time on
the economy, extremely very limited time,” he
said.
