Akufo-Addo will not ‘live to pay his debt’—Mahama fights ‘boot for boot’ to win presidential seat
The National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama has expressed urgent need for the citizenry to reinstate him to rescue the nation from heavy-debt that the Akufo-Addo-led administration is over-burdening the younger generation and the country with.
According to him, the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has shorter life and will not be able to live to pay all his debts.
Addressing chiefs and people of Nadowli in the Upper West Region as part of his regional tour to canvass vote for the party, ex-president Mahama explained that the days of Nana Akufo-Addo on earth are numbered and it is prudent for the younger generation to think ahead about their development and national well-being.
He said if the president is given another four years he would cripple the already injured economy and leave behind huge debt that the younger generation would not be able to pay.
Ex-president Mahama insisted that the president is likely to die per the natural age God blessed mankind with and expressed interest in winning the power to restructure and redirect the part of the country to suit the younger generation.
He stated that leaving good legacy behind and rescuing the country to propel younger generation is vital in this era, stressing that “I also have shorter life so this is the time you have to vote for me to rescue the nation from the debt of President Akufo-Addo because he is likely to die soon.”
The NDC flagbearer stated that he has some realistic plans and humanity strategy that when voted into power he would properly structure things to ensure the country is fit for the youth, thus the need for them to vote for him as soon as possible.
“The age of Akufo-Addo is shorter than all you young people. If you go to the market you see a small goatskin and you see an old goatskin. Young people can die I agree, but If the natural order is to be maintained, somebody who is 20 years old here is going to live maybe the next fifty years.
I at my age I am going to live shorter life, Nana Akufo-Addo is going to live shorter because at his age in the natural order of things if everybody is going according to his age, he has a shorter time. No, I am making a point that he is not going to pay that debt,” he added.
Ex-President Mahama said debt acrued under the watch of the Akufo-Addo-led administration would become debt of ages and would be left hugging around the neck of the younger generation.
That, he noted would be difficult for the next generation to pay since the economy is brutally wounded and not fit for purpose.
