Former President John Mahama’s special aide, Joyce Bawah Mogtari, has urged Ghanaians not to hold the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to a higher standard of accountability than the ruling party. Instead, she stated that the focus should be on holding the current government accountable for their actions and campaign promises.

Speaking on JoyNews’ PM Express, Mogtari cited various areas where the current government had failed, including corruption, media freedom, employment, and infrastructure. She accused the current government of making promises they couldn’t keep and driving the country into bankruptcy.

Mogtari was responding to comments made by Mahama during a party rally in the Northern Region. The former president had promised to recruit party members and their children into various security services if he is re-elected. Mogtari defended the statement, stating that it was a reaction to the partisan nature of the security services under the current administration.

According to Mogtari, members of the NDC who were recruited into the security services during the Mahama administration have been laid off or denied promotions. Meanwhile, members of the NPP’s Delta Forces have been promoted in the security services. She stated that the NDC has no vigilante group like the Delta Forces, but there is nothing wrong with employing qualified party members in the security services.

Mogtari called for honesty and transparency in discussing the state of the country’s security services. She stated that morale is low, promotions are done along partisan lines, and the security of the country is at an all-time low.

For the most part, Mogtari’s comments reflect the ongoing political debate in Ghana about the accountability of the ruling party and the opposition. As the country prepares for the 2024 elections, both parties are under pressure to make campaign promises that they can keep and to be held accountable for their actions.
