Vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has call on flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama to apologise on his ethnocentric comment.
Speaking during his tour of Gusehgu in the Northern Region, Dr. Bawumia cautioned the 2020 election will be won based on competence and not on tribalism.
“We don’t want a president who divides. We want a president who unites and so the recent utterance by John Mahama referring to Akyems as Sakawa boys; how do you take a whole tribe and say they are sakawa. You cannot win this Presidency with tribalism. Ghana has gone beyond tribalism.
He further added that, Mahama cannot show his competence on the work he claims he did and has rather resorted to the use of ethnocentric comments to win election.
“Come and show your competence in the delivery for the people of Ghana. But because you cannot show your competence. You are resorting to tribalism. We will not stand for tribalism and so we will continue to call on John Mahama to apologise unreservedly for what he has endorsed. This election is going to be fought on our record but not on tribalism.”
