Willam Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo

Former President John Dramani Mahama has leveled serious allegations against the government led by his successor, President William Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, accusing it of engaging in kleptocratic governance practices.

In a strongly-worded Facebook post, Mahama condemned what he described as the government’s “corrupt, ‘yenkyendi’, and cronyistic governance practices.” He expressed dismay over the alleged loss of $190 million intended for private sector participation in electricity distribution under the US Millennium Compact, attributing the loss to the actions of the current administration.

“This is unacceptable, and we deserve better as a people,” Mahama asserted, registering his dissatisfaction with the state of affairs under the Akufo-Addo government.

As the country gears up for the upcoming elections, Mahama took the opportunity to express gratitude for the support and endorsement he has received, signaling confidence in his prospects for the December 2024 election.

“As I prepare to assume the presidency in January 2025, thanks to your votes and endorsement in this year’s election, I want to assure you that I will work diligently to enhance private sector efficiency in the electricity distribution system, including metering, revenue management, and fault response,” he declared.

Mahama also promised that his future administration would prioritize accountability and conduct a thorough investigation into the PDS scandal to hold those involved accountable.

“We can work together to build a brighter future for Ghana’s power sector that benefits citizens and businesses,” he affirmed, calling on the public to unite in the fight against corruption and cronyism, and to strive towards building the Ghanaian society they aspire to.

With these statements, Mahama positions himself as a candidate committed to combating corruption and promoting accountability in government, setting the stage for what promises to be a fiercely contested election campaign.
