John Dramani Mahama criticized the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) intention to stay in power for the next eight years.
This intention to stay in power is known among the Ghanaian political elite as the “breaking the eight”. But the former president says that these political motives are for the NPP in power to “sweep under the carpet its corrupt practices”.
“They say break the eight. So we sweep under the rug all the unnecessary things we’ve done – that way we don’t account for our eight years – No, accountability has to take place. You’ve been in government for eight. So another year the government has to come and hold you accountable, ”said John Mahama.
Mahama’s comment follows on from President Nana Addo’s, he said the NPP “cannot continue to accept the setback that takes place every eight years.”
