Former President, John Mahama, has mocked persons he believes are having sleepless nights worrying about his choice of a running mate for the 2020 presidential elections.
The seeming delay about John Mahama’s choice for a running mate has sparked criticism both within his party and in the camp of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
A Member of Parliament from John Mahama’s party, Mahama Ayariga, has said the delay in naming a running mate could affect the party’s chances in the upcoming crucial elections.
NPP stalwart, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, also recently posted the following on Facebook: “It must be pretty frustrating when your choice of running mate turns you flat down… especially after you have approached him personally with your offer. Uneasy lies the head that wears a thorny crown…”
But in sharp rebuttal directed at his opponents, John Mahama said they were suffering from psychosis over their inability to correctly predict his choice for a running mate.
“It can become a frustrating psychosis when you are unable to correctly predict the winning ticket of your opponent,” he tweeted on Friday, May 29, 2020.
Psychosis is a mental disorder characterised by a disconnection from reality.
In February last year, former President Mahama secured 95.23 per cent endorsement to lead the NDC as flagbearer to Election 2020.
