Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has advised Ghanaians to ignore John Mahama’s one million jobs agenda which is one of the key elements in the NDC’s manifesto.
Speaking at a press conference in Kumasi, he cautioned Ghanaians to be very wary of John Mahama’s lies in the NDC’s manifesto.
According to Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, John Mahama during his tenure saw an upsurge in unemployment and has therefore lost the credibility to make promises in that regard.
“If you have somebody who during his period run down the Ghanaians economy, went to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for a bailout and result could not employ young people when they were graduating from school. You recall the Graduate Unemployment Association that were formed.
“You recall the cancellation of allowances because of economic crisis and the argument that even if they will vote against us they should vote against us and today this same person comes back and say that he is going to create one million jobs. Does it sound to anybody like a credible promise?”, he quizzed.
