Former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) Alex Mould has said former President John Dramani Mahama put a lot of work into putting the economy on track for growth especially in the area of infrastructure, commodities and energy.
Speaking to Nuong Faalong on TV3’s Hot Issues, which airs on Saturday, October 12 at 12:30 pm, Mr Mould said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has a good shot at returning to power based on the work former president Mahama put into stabilizing the economy particularly with the introduction of the ESLA Fund.
He said the failure of the NDC to communicate these achievements, contributed to their loss in 2016.
“2016 was one of the best years for the NDC, a lot of things had been done to make sure we could get the economy back on track by 2017 and fortunately for NPP, they inherited all of that.
“They inherited all the things that had been put in place and all they had to do was follow the handing over notes,” he said.
But he claims things have taken a different turn under the Akufo-Addo government with corruption endemic deep within it.
His claim comes contrary to claims by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in 2017 that he inherited a bad economy from Mr Mahama, though stopping short of complaining.
He promised to fix it.
But Alex Mould believes with what is turning out, the NDC will be voted for in 2020.
