Former President John Mahama says he hopes Ghana will pull out of hosting the 13th edition of the All-African Games slated for next year.

 

Addressing the nation on the economy at the UPSA Auditorium on Thursday evening on the theme: “Building the Ghana we want”, the 2020 NDC’s Flagbearer said the government needs to cancel some non-essential projects as Ghana's economic woes have been terribly felt by Ghanaians, forcibly calling out the President to fix the economy.

 

Mr. Mahama, without mincing words called for the suspension of the upcoming All-African Games, since the economic misery has spiraled out of control and the effects have been calamitous for all Ghanaians.

 

“If it is not too late, we can pull out of hosting the All-Africa Games as it would severely stretch our already precarious finances by hundreds of millions of cedis,” he said.

 

“In our current economic state, public funds must go into projects that are necessary and which meet the pressing needs of our people in the communities. Such projects must have tangible and measurable impact on job creation and national development."
