Akufo-Addo’s three years in government ‘miles’ better than Mahama’s first term – Gabby Otchere-Darko
Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, a leading member of the governing New Patriotic Party, has made a case for President Akufo-Addo to be given a second term in office owing to his remarkable performance in government, ABC News can report.
Within three years of taking over power, President Akufo-Addo has implemented the Free Senior High School programme, Planting for Food and Jobs, NaBCo and commenced the implementation of the One-District-One-Factory programme, which according to Gabby Otchere-Darko, shows the vision and plan the President has for the country.
Unlike the flagbearer of the opposition NDC, John Mahama, who was unable to account for anything significant within his 4-year mandate as Head of State because he believed it was too short a duration for him to implement ‘people-centered’ policies, Gabby Otchere-Darko asserted, President Akufo-Addo has clearly made known his vision and plans for the country.
“Mahama in 2016 said 4yrs was not enough for him or any leader to implement his vision. I responded that a leader must have the vision to know his tenure was for 4yrs!” the private legal practitioner wrote on Facebook, ABC News can report.
According to Mr Otchere-Darko, the electorate in a matter of four years must be clear in his or her mind what the vision of a leader is and decide whether he deserves another term or not.
“Mahama in 2016 said 4yrs was not enough for him or any leader to implement his vision. I responded that a leader must have the vision to know his tenure was for 4yrs! Meaning, in 4yrs the people must have a clear understanding of what your vision is and manifest evidence that you are, indeed, on track with that vision and deserving a second term; especially, in this case, as opposed to the alternative, the other leader who couldn’t convince in 4yrs that he had a vision and was a track with it and whatever the vision was augured well for country,” he said.
