Former president John Dramani Mahama has taken on the Director of Operations at the Presidency, Lord Commey over his claim that President Akufo-Addo will only handover to an NPP candidate.
Lord Commey while speaking on behalf of the president at the Greater Accra Regional Delegates Conference on Friday said breaking the 8 has become a slogan for the NPP however, there’s no 8 to be broken because the NPP will still be in charge of affairs after 2024.
“I don’t care who becomes national chairman, I don’t care who becomes flagbearer, what I care is that the NPP continues to reign in this country.”
Reacting to it on Global FM while on his thank you tour in Ho October 18, 2021, Mr Mahama noted that the arrogance of power has gotten to the NPP and that is why they pass such comments.
“… When you listen to people like Lord Commey it’s about power and not the welfare of the people or the will of the people. What do you mean by that? It is the sovereign will of the people who elect you to serve but when the arrogance of power sets in then you hear people speak so carelessly and recklessly. I think it’s most unfortunate. And he was quoting the president, he said the president said he is going to hand over to NPP president, it’s not your will because it’s God’s will and the will of the people.”
