National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party, Henry Nana Boakye, popularly known has Nana B has chastised former President John Mahama for electing a 68yr old Prof Naana Opoku Agyemang as running mate.
According to Nana B, Mr Mahama claimed in 2012 that a 65-yr old Akufo Addo was too old to vie for presidency but he has gone ahead to select a 68-yr old woman as vice president ahead of the December polls.
He wrote on facebook,”In 2012, the then flag bearer of the NPP and current President of the Republic, H. E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo was 68 years old. At the time, the NDC led by John Dramani Mahama said Akufo Addo was too old (Akokra) and not fit to lead the country.”
“In that election, John Dramani stopped at nothing in touting his supposed ‘youthfulness’.”
“Today the same person, (Mr. Mahama) has chosen a 69-year-old lady (by Mahama’s standards ‘Aberewa’) as his running mate. So if Nana Addo could not be president in 2012 because of his age, how does his 69-year-old nominee become Vice President in the impossible event he becomes President?
“The NDC’s hypocrisy and inconsistency will always hunt them down.”
John Mahama on July 6, 2020 announced Prof Naana Opoku Agyemang as his Vice Presidential candidate for Election 2020.
