Mahama Should’ve Groomed Someone Instead Of Contesting — Gabby

Published

on


A member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has criticised the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for running again as president despite his defeat in 2016.

Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko said John Mahama has done a “great disservice” to the party for not stepping aside and grooming someone else.

He told Asempa FM Friday, that the decision by the former President Mahama to run again creates the impression that NDC does not have other qualified Presidential candidates.

“When he was voted out of power in 2016 when the state of affairs was almost on its knees, he could have done better service to the NDC by helping to groom a successor.

“Because right now, imagine he loses the election, (which is easy to imagine), in December 2020. In 2024, by then Akufo-Addo would have completed his eight years term, so there will be a new candidate for NPP but who will the NDC have groomed someone by then?”

The former director of the Danquah Institute added that the opposition’s inability to select a new candidate other than Mr Mahama will affect the party fortunes since it takes time to ‘market and sell’ a personality in the country.

“I think it is like the NPP boycotting the 1992 elections, it delayed whatever opportunities we had for at least four more years. So maybe the NDC boycotting the opportunity to get a new candidate to then sell the candidate because sometimes it takes a while to sell the candidate, I am looking at the history of the fourth republic.”

Commenting on the Mahama administration, the NPP supporter stressed the former President did a poor job managing the economy.

He noted that, Mr Mahama does not understand how to run the economy, thus, should he be voted into power again, the country will be in a regrettable state by the end of his tenure.

“The situation and crisis that we are in now requires serious thinking so with all this issues that the government is managing and you vote for the person who was unable to do it during his eight years as Vice and President of the country then [we will be wrong].”

I Can’t Be Compared To Mahama Who Cuts Sods Without Funding – Akufo-Addo

Published

on


President Akufo Addo has in a subtle jab stated he is not like former president John Dramani Mahama who goes about cutting sods for projects without funds secured.

Cutting sod for the construction of the 71.25-kilometre Enchi to Elubo road, as part of his 3-day tour of the Western North Region on Friday September 25, the President noted he only cut sods when all the process have been completed with the money available.

“When I came here a year ago, I assured the Chiefs and people that I will work hard to ensure that the Enchi to Elubo road commences. There were a number of processes, like the contractor and funding sources, that had to be completed before today’s ceremony could take place. All those processes have been successfully completed”

He continued, “I am not like some people who rush to cut sods without securing the requisite funding for the projects. I will never do that. When I cut the sod, it means all the processes have been completed and the money for the project is available. I am not out to deceive anyone.”

Western Togoland Protest Is A Diversionary Tactic By Gov’t To Take Attention Off Voter Roll Anomalies – MP

Published

on


Member of Parliament for Builsa North Constituency, James Agalga has accused the government of being behind the Western Togoland protest which happened in the Volta region this dawn.

According to him, it is an attempt to divert attention from the much talked about voter register anomalies which the EC is attempting to disenfranchise many Ghanaians.

He told Ghanaweb, “Curiously enough, only yesterday, the main opposition leader President Mahama addressed a major press conference and outlined a number of grievances in respect of this voter exhibition exercise. There has been a massive deletion of names of Ghanaians from the voters roll. President Mahama drew the attention of the whole world to these happenings only yesterday, now this morning, we are hearing of an attack, 2 police stations have been attacked. It seems to me that this particular move is a diversionary tactic”.

“The coincidence is mindboggling that the inability of our national security to gather intelligence in respect of the intention of those bandits to cause trouble in the Volta region is something that needs to be engaged in the attention of all”.

“Nothing poses danger to our national security than the deletion of the names of Ghanaians from the voters roll. We had issues of the military deployed to the Volta region to prevent Ghanaians from registering…this a ploy on the part of the security agency to cause further deployment in that part of the country and to intimidate our people in a manner that will discourage them from coming out to vote in the December elections. These are all matters that need to be interrogated properly,” he added.

It Was Needless To Call For Int’l Observers, We Run Our Elections Without Them – Mahama Slammed

Published

on


Political Pressure group, Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA),has criticised National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama for caliing on International Observers to come down to the country immediately.

This comes after the former president expressed displeasure over activities of the Electoral Commission.

“I wish to appeal to the international community, international election observers and our domestic observers; given all that has gone amiss with the electoral process and the likelihood of continued greater challenges ahead of this year’s elections, I will want to urge them to focus their lenses on Ghana and arrive earlier in the country than ever before. This will enable them to engage the EC, IPAC and all stakeholders as part of efforts to resolve these major problems with the register,” he said at a press briefing on Thursday, September 24, 2020.

In reaction, the LMVCA told Starr FM that the call was unnecessary because the EC had already admitted its flaws and have assured it’ll fix them.

He added that Ghana has been running its elections without international observers therefore their presence here won’t be needed.
