Mahama lied, we fulfilling our promises – Buabeng Asamoah
The communication director for the New Patriotic Party and Member of Parliament for Adenta, Lawyer Buabeng Asamoah has reacted to former President Mahama’s assertion that the NPP lied their way into power.
The lawmaker response comes after former President Mahama last Saturday said, unlike the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), the National Democratic Congress (NDC) always delivers on its promises when voted into power.
“We are not the same as the NPP. We have always stood by the truth. We have not told false promises just because we want political power. We tell the people exactly what we can do for them and when we come into office, we make our best effort to deliver exactly what we said we can do for them,” he said at the party’s 27th Anniversary lecture.
Giving more examples to support his claim, Mr. Mahama said the NPP gave vain promises in the run up to the 2016 general elections in a bid to win the polls.
“It was in 2016 that NPP elevated false promises to a historic level. It was just like anything the people want to hear because we want political power but you forget that when you have done that and you come into power, the reality will catch up with you …Today, a large group of people are disappointed with the NPP.” he added.
In Lawyer Buabeng Asamoah response, he said every promise that the NPP made to Ghanaians have been fulfilled. According to him, the NPP government is not asleep and will continue to serve Ghanaians in ways that are beneficial.
“Since NPP came into office, whether we can afford it or not, now we can take our children to Senior High School for free. They even get free uniforms. If you thought the effects would only be felt in Accra, I am telling Mahama that those in his area are also enjoying this good thing. Mahama and his NDC should appreciate and stop the needless politics” he said.
He added that former president Mahama is noted for such utterances anytime he meets his party people.
