Dr. Apaak: Mahama Will Fulfill His Promises
Presidential Staffer Dr. Clement Apaak says promises made by the President before he was sworn in as president of Ghana will be delivered.
He wondered why Ghanaians should be quick to judge since he (John Mahama) has started delivering on his promises.
"Ghanaians should be specific and say what the president has promised to do or not do; the accusations are too much. The president has heard concerns raised by Ghanaians and is working towards it and so they should take their time,” he stated on Asempa FM's Ekosii Sen on Wednesday.
76 percent of Ghanaians have blamed government for failing to improve their living standards according to Afrobarometer round 6 results.
The report sampled the views of 2,400 citizens about their economic and living conditions.
The respondents said government is performing very badly or fairly badly in improving the living standards of the citizenry.
The survey also revealed that majority of Ghanaians say their current economic conditions have worsened, compared to the same period a year ago.
Another 70% of Ghanaians believe government has been ineffective or very ineffective in using oil revenues to improve living conditions
The findings also indicate that nearly four in 10 Ghanaians are pessimistic about economic conditions in the coming year.
The data is being released as Ghana seeks support from the International Monetary Fund and other partners in an effort to boost international confidence and solicit support for the country's economic stabilization and growth programme.
But Mr. Apaak says government not meeting their standards does not mean the authorities are unconcerned, but are hampered by lack of resources.
