This Gov't Is Only Interested In Propaganda - Atik Mohammed

Atik Mohammed, PNC Policy Analyst, strongly believes the current Mahama-led NDC Government is bereft of ideas in finding solutions to the problems confronting Ghanaians.

According to him, the current administration's failure to solve the erratic power supply and energy situation, is indicative that "this government is only interested in propaganda."

Atik Mohammed noted that though the 1200 Megawatts deal recently signed between the Ghanaian Republic and General Electric including the gas agreement that the government has signed with ENI to a tune of $7 billion would help to increase the electricity capacity, it will not rectify the generation problem in the short-term.

In Atik's conviction, President Mahama and his government only delight in peddling lies while problems are left unsolved.

“...Tell us that you don’t have money…Stop telling us that it’s [the crisis] due to maintenance, low water levels and so on,” he demanded.

Also speaking on the programme, Hon. Owusu-Ekuful, the NPP MP for Ablekuma West, accused President Mahama and his appointees of being apathetic to the crippling economic crises confronting Ghanaians.

She noted that the Mahama administration has finally proven it is an insensitive government and not committed to resolving the energy crises.

"The incessant power cuts have over the years become the bane of Ghanaians and the Mahama-led government seems to have no clue about how to solve it," Hon. Ursula Owusu said.

She recounted some plight of Ghanaians that indicate that President John Mahama is not up to task so far as the energy crises and other problems are concerned.

She said, under President Mahama's leadership, students now have to use torchlights or street lights for reading due to the power outages.

“They don’t care about the suffering of the people,” she asserted.
