The General Secretarty of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Nana Yaa Jantuah, says she sympathises with former President John Dramani Mahama for the way Ghanaians treat him.

According to her, even though the former head of state contributed his quota to the development of the country, he was subjected to a lot of widespread public backlash and criticism.

Speaking on Accra-based TV3, she however. noted that the treatment Mahama received is less severe than the way Ghanaians are currently handling President Akufo-Addo.

This she said, causes her to sympathise with Mahama over Akufo-Addo, despite the latter’s poorer performance.

“… Just because you don’t like somebody, you should give credit. Me sometimes the way they treat his excellency John Dramani Mahama, I am not in NDC but sometimes I feel sad”, the CPP chief scribe said.

“Of course [Mahama has been treated unfairly]. All the insults they insulted him those days. Akufo-Addo has had it easy. We love him.

Because with the type of [governance], with DDEP all that, do you think that if in President Mahama’s time we had gone through DDEP, he would have been staying in this country?”, she quizzed.

The CPP leader therefore called on Ghanaians to allow Mahama to enjoy some peace of mind.

Nana Yaa Jantuah’s remarks adds to her recent comments on government’s Domestic Debt Exchange Programme (DDEP) on February 9, where she accused government of being insensitive to the plights of citizens.

In an emotional submission, with tears rolling down her cheeks, she said “So doesn’t Ken Ofori-Atta have pity on them? Why? How can you do this? You don’t even care”.

Condemning the DDEP, she expressed frustration about the state of investments in the country, adding that she is appalled by the NPP’s hopes of winning the 2024 general election amidst the current economic crisis.

Since its announcement on December 5 last year, government’s Domestic Debt Exchange Programme (DDEP) has been met with fierce opposition and widespread public resistance.

Apart from individual bondholders, civil society organisations, academics, finance experts as well as the Minority in Parliament and a host of other well-meaning Ghanaians have vehemently resented the policy.

Meanhwhile, government insists it is a crucial intervention in helping the country recover from her current economic crisis.

So far, government is said to have achieved more than the 80% target needed for the Domestic Debt Exchange Programme (DDEP).

The programme is part of the requirements before Ghana can secure an economic bailout of about $3 billion from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
