Member of Parliament for Bia East Constituency in the Western Region, Richard Acheampong says the Mahama administration was truthful to Ghanaians about the state of the economy unlike Akufo-Addo’s government.

He added that the NDC in government explicitly told Ghanaians that “we are in tough times and that is why we said we were scrapping teacher and nurses training allowances”.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' Morning Show, Richard Acheampong said inasmuch as the NDC was truthful to Ghanaians, Mahama's government used the scrapped allowances of teachers and nursing trainees to build schools, Chip compounds and hospitals in order to employ them after graduation.

“We were truthful to them; we did not deceive them that we will give them allowances and employment as well when they graduate, but now from last year September till date, nursing training allowances have not been paid,” he asserted.

He said that if government will show remorse and openly tell the good people of Ghana that they got it all wrong and beg Ghanaians to support the nation, the Akufo-Addo government can win the sympathy of Ghanaians.

He reminded that all Ghanaians including the Minority in Parliament are seeking for the development of the country and so will be willing to assist the government to appreciate the falling Cedi, but added that “if they want to portray as if they know while they don’t know, then they will not get the sympathy they look for”.
