Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Mahama says he has always stood for the truth as a politician.
The former President speaking in an interview at the Gateway Hotel-Nkwanta on August 23, says he likes to play politics of truth and not one that is full of lies and deciet.
He said the current government has shaken the beliefs of Ghanaians because of the numerous lies they have told the populace.
“In all my politics I have tried to stand by the truth and not overly raise expectation of the people. I am a realist. The Nana Addo administration has shown that politics is all about power they have shaken the beliefs of our people. They have told them numerous lies which has seen our people tag all politicians as liars, but I am ready to change thatv perception again when I am voted into power come December”.
Mr Mahama also said the NPP know they have failed in the fight against corruption and that was the reason why they did not include it in their manifesto.
He said President Akufo-Addo has taken a trend to clear his appointees when they go are found culpable and the current administration is very corrupt.
He indicated that should he be voted into power he will investigate the controversial PDS deal and prosecute all those found guilty in what he describes as a ‘shady deal’.
Mahama and the NDC are yet to launch their manifesto and says what they will present to Ghanaians will give them hope for a brighter future.
