NDC deserves 24 years in opposition for Mahama's 'legacy mess' – Otchere-Darko

04 Nov, 2019

Ghana’s biggest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) deserves being in opposition for, at least, 24 years for messing up the country’s energy sector, the founder of Danquah Institute, Mr Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has said.

In the President’s cousin’s view, Ghana is better off with the NDC and its flag bearer Mr John Mahama being in opposition for a long time.

“I heard the NDC complaining about Ghana losing $190 million (or even potentially more) from the USA over the ECG concession issue, when, by their misdeeds, we are throwing away $500 million a year for power we don’t use”, Mr Otchere-Darko wrote on Facebook, adding: “Thanks to this same Mahama NDC and the power purchase agreements they signed, total capacity charges for the IPPs annually is around $850 million”.
