Mahama was at his grandstanding best when he met the clergy and presented himself as though he were a paragon of honesty and virtue whilst making a monster of President Akufo-Addo at the meeting.
The former President, knowing perfectly well that there is a form of a catch-22 between them and the clergy, set out to turn this strained relationship upside down by creating the impression that it is the NPP that is against the various religious beliefs, principles and leadership and not the NDC.
To effect this schemed agenda, John Dramani Mahama said that elements within the NPP have been attacking pastors and leaders of some religious denominations who have spoken against the ills of the administration.
He, therefore, asked them to support the NDC to come back to power to right the wrongs he claimed to have identified.
These levels of egotistical tendencies and barefaced lies on the part of the flagbearer of the NDC should not be countenanced as the facts run parallel to his claims.
First of all, for a leader who is claimed to hate the clergy and their leadership, how come the same leader is building a National Cathedral for the Church? Is it not an established fact that it is the NDC that has kicked against the construction of the National Cathedral? Mahama rather hates the clergy, not Akufo-Addo.
The pastors he claims have been attacked by the NPP did not conduct themselves as pastors but politicians. A pastor is to pastor God’s flock and not to use the pulpit to spew palpable lies and twist issues with the view to hyping his political party to the detriment of the ruling party. Such false misrepresentations of facts would not be left unattended to under no circumstances.
Is it not ironic that a political party whose leadership described some men of God as criminals and politicians in cassock is now accusing the NPP of being anti-religious groups?
This agenda will not fly. It is a well-known truth that it is the NDC that hates the clergy with venom, not the NPP.
