Former President John Dramani Mahama will have President Akufo-Addo to credit if he wins the 2024 general elections, investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has said.
In a Facebook post, he said President Akufo-Addo has been busy campaigning for the 2020 NDC flagbearer.
He wrote: “If John Mahama wins 2024 hands down, he should not forget to give credit to Akufo-Addo, who is campaigning hard for him.”
Meanwhile Mr Asante Otchere, a political analyst has also berated the decision of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to make former President John Dramani Mahama the centre of their just-ended National Delegates Conference held in Kumasi, Ashanti Region.
He said this in an interview on Accra100.5FM’s morning show Ghana Yensom on Monday, 20 December 2021, hosted by Iddrisu Awudu.
“For the NPP and for that matter the sitting President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to make former President John Dramani Mahama the centre of their just-ended National Delegates Conference was bizarre,” he said.
According to him, the NPP seems to have made former president Mahama their manifesto at the conference.
He described it as scandalous.
Mr Asante Otchere was of the view that the NPP seems to be openly scared of Mr Mahama even though the former president is not the flag bearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“We know the former president will be contesting for the slot of the NDC so why make him the centre of the conference?” he quizzed.
