A member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) who serves as the Asokwa Constituency Financial Secretary of the party in the Ashanti Region (A/R), Paul Kwabena Yandoh has lashed out at former President Mahama on his bid to wrestle power with the NPP in the upcoming 2020 general elections.
Speaking on Garden City radio monitored by Mypurefmonline.com, the NPP financial analyst remarked that ex-President Mahama’s incessant claims that he has learnt useful lessons from his past experiences and is poised to transform Ghana is a smirk of arrogance and belittling the minds of Ghanaians.
He explained that the former President after plunging the country into serious hardships and eventually taking the country to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) due to his gross incompetence thinks his obscured assertion that Ghanaians have a short memory is true so he can insult the intelligence of the people by playing mind games on them.
“The former President thinks we have soon forgotten his mess. The bad governance and gross disrespect for Ghanaians under his tenure. He thinks we have short memories like he asserted and hence, can emotionally blackmail us.
Bishop, this won’t work. The former President should be ashamed coming out publicly with this conclusion. We are wide awake now and have seen the good things, President Akufo-Addo is doing. Not again will we be deceived.”
Mr. Paul Kwabena Yandoh further advised that, the former President at best should use his useful lessons learnt to better his household and not play hide and seek with the seat of government as governance is a serious business.
The former president of the Republic of Ghana and the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama stated that he has plans to transform the nation.
In a Facebook post, the former president indicated that he has learnt his lessons and is coming back to lay a solid foundation for the development of Ghana.
According to John Mahama, he has the experience and is hopeful that his practical strategy will improve the lives of Ghanaians.
The former president wrote on Facebook; “I have been there, I have experienced it, I have learnt useful lessons, I have reviewed issues and events, and I am coming back to you, together with my party, the NDC, with what will be a practical strategy for laying a solid foundation for the transformation of our country.
This manifesto will be different. It will be a manifesto that will be the conclusion of a long, detailed and consultative process involving broad interactions with our people, incorporating their concerns, their hopes and their aspirations”.
