In an exclusive interview with Kwaku Sintim-Misa (KSM), President John Mahama has said that he’s content with the rating of 47% that his administration was given by IMANI-Ghana. Although the president did not mention IMANI by name, his reference to a think tank and the 47% rating leaves no doubt that he was referring to IMANI.
The president admitted that he had had a turbulent first 100 days in office in the midst of industrial actions and power and water crises. He attributed the power and water shortages to the burgeoning population of the urban areas of the country and outlined the plans that his administration had to solve the crisis.
Answering a question on the recent activities of foreign nationals in mining, the president said that small-scale mining was the preserve of Ghanaians and that foreign nationals engaged in the activity would be dealt with according to the law.
It will interest the president to know that he has been given a rating of 70% by Dr Joe Abbey of the Centre for Policy Analysis (CEPA). Dr Joe Abbey blamed the turbulence in the first 100 days of President Mahama’s administration on the on-going challenge of his electoral victory in the Supreme Court.
