According to local media report Wednesday, Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) survey, which conducted from July 2 to 18 among 2,400 adult Ghanaians, revealed that seven out of 10 Ghanaians believe the government is steering the country in the wrong direction.
“Ghanaians place unemployment, electricity, and education on the top policy priority list they want the 2016 polls to address,” said Daniel Armah Attoh, senior research fellow at CDD-Ghana.
Meantwhile, Ghanaians are split in their evaluations of the job performance of President John Dramani Mahama and Members of Parliament, the survey stated.
While nearly half approve the overall job performance of the president and their respective MPs, the rest think otherwise.
The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), however, said the survey “is a confirmation of the party’s long held view that CDD is biased towards the opposition New Patriotic Party”.
National Organizer NDC, Kofi Adams, who claimed President Mahama had done more in the power sector than any other government, stated that the NDC had over the years never expected the CDD to give a positive assessment of the party. Enditem
