Ghana PresidentPresident John Mahama  of Ghana says his critics should be patient with his government because he will change from slow gear to higher gear to spearhead development of the nation.
On Friday 25th October, President Mahama told a gathering at Awutu Senya in the Central Region of Ghana that he will soon change to 2nd, 3rd and 4th gear to develop the Nation.

He has been heavily criticised by many Ghanaians. The popular slogan in Ghana is ‘BOYS ABRE’ which means that people are suffering. Other political parties believe that president Mahama is rather in a reverse gear as he is retrogressing the development of the state.

Political critics like the Convention People’s Party (CPP) say the country is broke.
as there is so many strike actions from government workers and fraud becoming rampant in Ghana. The promise of president Mahama NDC government 50 school buildings per year is unachievable.
Dr. Robert Osei of University of Ghana, have warned that Ghana risks going into a highly indebted poor country state if the economy of the country is not repaired.

Ghana’s donor partners recently suspended aid budget support aid to the West African nation over concerns with the country’s expenditure of 70 percent of tax revenue on the wages of about 700,000 workers.

They also raised issues with the high budget deficit of 12.1 per cent for 2012.

The president’s critics are also angry with him over his handling of major corruption scandals, particularly, the rot at the Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA).

The government also uncovered recently that about 280 private and state organisations, including some Ministries and the Electricity Company of Ghana, connived with some customs officers at the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) to defraud the state of over Ghc144 million in tax revenue between 2005 and 2012.

President Mahama has, however, assured his critics that they will soon start seeing developmental.

Dr. Clement Apak stated that people should give constructive criticism on Mahama’s government.
