The Bono Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Kwame Baffoe, popularly known as Abronye DC has alleged that the NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama cut short his tour of the Bono Region in order to avoid disgrace because the turnout was low.
Former President John Dramani Mahama yesterday announced that he had put his tour of the Bono Region on hold in order to return to Accra and address some concerns of alleged strange deletion of names from the voter’s register.
However, Abronye believes that the reason given by the NDC flagbearer is just to hide the reality of the situation.
According to the controversial Party Chairman, the NDC flagbearer was massively disgraced because of the significantly low turnout of persons that came out to meet him especially after his visit to Sunyani Odumasi on Sunday, 21 September 2020.
In a statement, Abronye said, “It must be noted empathically that the main reason for cutting short his tour in the region is that, yesterday [Monday, 21 September 2020] after visiting Sunyani Odumasi around 1 a.m., John Mahama was not encouraged about the turnout and for that matter, in a meeting held at Esubett with a session of his regional executives, he told them that to avoid any disgrace, he has to return to Accra and come back later after a better mobilisation has been done”.
“To add to that, throughout his visit, after seeing the good works done by President Akufo-Addo with regard to the road sector, infrastructure and other developmental projects and listening to the people’s feedback, he had no option than to return to Accra because no one paid attention to him,” Abronye said.
