“Is Mahama Now Saint In Opposition? He Is The Same Yesterday” – Nana Akomeah Quizzes
The former president of Ghana and flag-bearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC has been a topic for discussion on most of the media platforms after making a promise to pay Assembly members in his next term as the president of Ghana when given the nod by the Ghanaian electorate in the December 7 2020 general election.
Mr. Mahama, during a Facebook Live stressed that Assembly Members were “the bedrock of our local governance system” after a question on improving their conditions of service was asked him. He added that Assembly Members may start receiving salaries from the government if John Mahama and the National Democratic Congress return to power.
However, in a studio discussion with Nana Kofi Akomeah, a vociferous member of the ruling New Patriotic Party’s communication team and the Greater Accra Regional Treasurer for Nana – Bawumia Movement, he disclosed that per records of the former president that is not possible. He can’t achieve it even if the policy is good.
“I am telling you that policy could be good but the one carrying the vision. Check his records and see. I have given you about ten instances. Even when he promised SADA for his own country men in the Northern region, what happened? They used all the money to buy motorbikes for their people and the rest for campaign let alone to pay Assembly members across the country” – Nana Akomeah said.
Nana Kofi Akomeah maintained that the Mahama we know in the past is the same today, he hasn’t changed and for that matter cannot be trusted. “The Mahama we know has not changed. What has changed. What at all has he learnt in the over 3 years in opposition? He is the same yesterday, we know his records.” – Nana Kofi Akomeah maintained.
Moreover, the communicator revealed that Prof. Kwesi Botwe and Haruna Iddrisu (minority leader) would have been the best ticket for NDC than John Mahama and Jane Naana.
