Addressing his constituents during the former President John Mahama (JM)’s visit to the Ho West constituency at Dzolokpuita, the Member of Parliament cum Volta MPs Caucus chairman, Hon. Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah made a vivid comparison between the current government and the erstwhile Mahama administration by describing the former as a ‘bitter leaf’ and the latter as ‘honey’. “Ghanaians chose bitter leaf over honey “, he asserted.

The law maker’s comparison is based on the performance of both governments in terms of economic management, infrastructure development and education.

Talking about the economy, Hon. Bedzrah said the Nana Addo led government mismanaged the economy to the extend that Ghanaians couldn’t even celebrate the Christmas as expected and there is suffering and poverty all over the country.

Touching on infrastructure development, Hon. Bedzrah recounted some of the projects abandoned by the NPP administration in Ho West and expressed his disappointment in the choice (bitter leaf) Ghanaians made in the 2016 elections. He however, praised the former president Mahama’s achievement in infrastructure development and urged Ghanaians to make the best choice by choosing John Mahama and the NDC in the 2020 elections, for he is overconfident that JM will bear the party’s flag.

Hon. Bedzrah lambasted the Nana Addo led government for messing up the education system especially at the Senior High School level and putting our dear students and parents in undue pressure and suffering.

The Ho West MP urged Ghanaians to choose honey (JM) over bitter leaf (Nana Addo) in the upcoming 2020 elections.
