Former National Youth Organizer of the opposition New Patriotic Party [NPP] Emmanuel Attafuah-Danso claims that Mahama-led National Democratic Congress [NDC] government is more lethal than currently, the world’s most deadly virus, Ebola.
According to him, Ghana is in “mess” under the current NDC administration with not much effort from the leader [President Mahama] to arrest the situation. He noted that, President John Dramani Mahama is “killing Ghanaians faster” than Ebola which has claimed over 700 lives across the West African sub-region.
“Trust me; the economic hardship in the system now is hellish. The president and his appointees are the only ones enjoying. Ghanaians are really suffering and the entire nation is in a mess. Ebola here, cholera there….but this Mahama-led NDC government is more deadly to Ghanaians than Ebola,” he said.
In an interview with Peacefmonline.com the former NPP Youth Organizer blamed the President for the unprecedented increase of youth unemployment in Ghana.
“Every nation’s development is anchored, rested or facilitated by the human resource it has which is largely its youth and potential labour force. The reverse is the case in Ghana and the ill treatment is meted out to its youth.
“…What do I mean when we say the future belong to the youth? In Ghana, it is for the corrupt presidents, ministers and government functionaries. For the first time in the annals of this country’s history, we have an association called Graduate Unemployed Association of Ghana the bane of the nation’s development which is superintended, formed and created by the so-called ‘Youth President’ J.D Mahama.
“…Mahama’s government has helped in creating, breeding and strengthening the numbers negatively for the youth unemployment in Ghana which has resulted in many problems facing the country. For example, the high rate of crime prostitution, increase in the engagement of other social vices,” he lamented.
An emotionally-filled Attefuah-Danso, who described the current administration as “heartless”, said the president’s many decisions by someone seen as a youthful leader, has rather left Ghanaian youth disillusioned.
“Talk of GYEEDA and the NDC government has emptied the fund and made the only hope for Ghana’s youth striving to be gain some form of employment championed by Former President Kufour now almost a mirage .The GYEEDA Program is selectively applied to benefit NDC youth and apparatchiks,” he alleged
