Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that the Akufo-Addo-led government inherited over $270 million from the National Democratic Congress’ administration.
Speaking at an event dubbed: Professional Dialogue Series on October 26, John Mahama refuted all claims made by President Akufo-Addo that he left the New Patriotic Party with nothing upon their assumption of power in the year 2017.
Outlining the success of the NDC, the flag bearer of the party revealed that his administration left the NPP revenue from two oil fields, a total of $270 million as well as some money in the stabilization fund.
“I left him revenue from two new oil fields; the Ten field and the ENI Sankofa field. I left him with $270 million in the Ghana infrastructure investment fund.
“I also left them $207 million in the Stabilisation Fund and about $300 million in the Sinking Fund,” he stated.
He further reiterated that the NPP government has failed to maintain the economic growth and success that were passed on to them by the NDC.
The flag bearer of the NDC mentioned that the NPP is not capable of running the economic affairs of the country.
“Ghana was projected to achieve a growth of 8% of GDP in 2017 which was supposed to be sustained in the years to come.
“The NPP which came into office in 2017 inherited that growth but could not increase or maintain the height we chalked.
“In the subsequent years they recorded growth that has been below the 8% mark,” he noted.
