Akufo-Addo has moved us from ‘Ghana Beyond Aid’ to ‘Ghana Beyond Borrowing’ – Haruna Iddrisu

Former Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, has said that he is confident that his party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), will form the next government.

According to him, Ghanaians are going to boot out the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-led New Patriotic Party (NPP) government during the 2024 election because they have come to the realization that the NDC is the better alternative.

Haruna Iddrisu, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale South, added that the NDC will win the upcoming 2024 elections because its presidential candidate, John Dramani Mahama, has a far superior record than the candidate of the NPP, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

The MP, who made these remarks in an interview with JoyNews during a campaign event in the Upper West Region, on April 22, 2024, also pointed out that the only thing the NPP government has managed to do is to bury Ghana in debt.

“(We are going to win) because we stand strong on the side of morality, on the side of truth and we are proud of our legacy as a party and government in the past, with President John Dramani Mahama as the 4th President of the 4th Republic and our candidate for the 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections.

“We are quite satisfied with the performance of the NDC in the Upper West Region. At least we didn’t borrow as recklessly as they have – 60 billion against 120 billion; a debt to GDP ratio which is unprecedented,” he said.

He added, “So, Nana Addo Dankwa and Dr. Bawumia have only moved Ghana from ‘Ghana Beyond Aid’ to ‘Ghana Beyond Borrowing.’ They can’t borrow again themselves and they are making it impossible for the country to rely on external borrowing to finance the budget and deal with the deficit”.
