Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has observed that in spite of all the opportunities that have been presented to Ghana, the biggest crisis facing her is leadership paralysis being presided over by the Mills-Mahama led National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration. “This era of leadership paralysis must not exist a minute longer than the four years the people and the Constitution granted the NDC, in all innocence, in 2008. We need change now to move Ghana forward. "We cannot waste four more years under this government of lies, propaganda, hypocrisy, incompetence, corruption and economic hardships. The people want jobs; not juju politics that create 1.6 million phantom jobs and turn sheep into cows, sod cuttings into Action Year and judgment debts into gargantuan crimes.” A statement issued in Accra by Mr Perry Okudzeto, Deputy Communications Director of NPP copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) said Nana Akufo-Addo made the observation when interacting with the Ghanaian community in Texas, US recently. Nana Akufo-Addo stated that the NDC Government headed by President John Evans Atta Mills had had much more resources than any other government in the past, and these resources, in the form of higher taxes, duties, record earnings from gold and cocoa, billions of dollars of loans, leading to a doubling of Ghana’s total debt portfolio in just three years. He maintained that what was required by Ghana, a country blessed with a vast amount of natural resources, was competent leadership that could offer solutions and results with urgency and sagacity. “Ghana needs a government dedicated to serving the people and not swerving the people. A Nana Akufo-Addo’s administration will get Ghana working. “We have the people – Ghanaian people, we have the competence, we have the conviction and we have the programme to move Ghana forward. And, with God’s eternal guidance, we shall succeed in getting Ghana to succeed,” Nana Akufo-Addo added.
