Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawling who is the leader and founder of the National Democratic Party (NDP), and also the founder of the 31st December Movement, said there is nothing to show for President Mahama’s claim of transforming Ghana and changing lives.

Nana Konadu had also described President Mahama as “insensitive” since he failed to listen to the suffering masses following the recent hikes in utility and fuel prices, adding that the fuel price hikes has further worsened the plight of the many Ghanaians who struggle to make ends meet.

She was addressing a rally in Accra where she stressed that the NDC government presently, has failed to deliver on its social contract with the citizens.

“Is that why somebody even attacks you or fights you and you say it is equal to violence? Violence is when you have violated us, when we have given you our mandate to run a country efficiently and effectively and you are able to disrupt the lives of Ghanaians but you can tell us you are changing our lives. Yes indeed you are changing our lives, but not for the better.” she said.

According to her, intellectuals in the country must rise up to speak against the difficulties being experienced by Ghanaians, saying that opinion leaders must accept whatever is given to them by the government be it cars, but they must voice out.

“Open your mouth and speak out because if you don’t speak out today, tomorrow you have to hold your peace forever,” Mrs. Rawlings added.

She also told the gathering that taxes are paid by the people so that they can be protected.

It can be recall that Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings has been at the heels of the NDC government and the President over the period lambasting leaders for doing so little to protect Ghanaians despite collecting taxes from the people.

She said, the rise in the rate of violent crime and murders in Ghana raises doubts about the ability of the state to protect the lives and property of its citizens, as she called on government to do more to ensure the safety of Ghanaians.
