Former President John Dramani Mahama has taken a dig at the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government, saying it has come to the end of the road in terms of any workable ideas.
According to the 2024 flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), only a change in government can result in a change in the current trajectory Ghana is heading.
Mr Dramani Mahama made this known while speaking at the KNUST-TEIN Alumni Connect on Saturday, July 8.
He bemoaned the current mass exodus of Ghanaian youth from the country in search of greener pastures due to the current dire economic conditions.
“Most Ghanaian youth rightly disillusioned by the hopelessness engulfing our country are preparing now to leave the country in search of greener pastures elsewhere,” he observed.
“Not even the perilous nature of those journeys in this pursuit is enough to deter them. Many sectors especially education and health continue to lose many professionals who find the attraction of earning far more abroad than they do here too irresistible.
“This is a telltale sign of national failure, a news to be reversed as quickly as we can.”
He, therefore, called on well-meaning Ghanaians to stem the tide as early as the next elections.
“The reality, however, is that no measure of confidence can be placed in this Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government to be able to do this. The sad reality is that only a change of government through the 2024 elections can result in a change in the trajectory of this country as the NPP has come to an end of the road in terms of any workable ideas.”
