President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has questioned the basis Former President John Dramani Mahama is so desperate to be elected into office again after spending almost 8 years in government.
According to President Nana Addo, this is the first time a former president is contesting an incumbent, adding that the NDC’s flagbearer John Mahama has nothing new to offer Ghanaians other than the ‘incompetence and corruption’ Ghanaians witnessed under his tenure.
The President in his submissions, indicated that Ghanaians will be making a big mistake if they decide to give power to the National Democratic Congress in this year’s polls scheduled for December 7.
“This is the first time in our history that an incumbent president and an immediate past president is contesting for an election. Ghanaians should ask themselves what Mahama used his power for while he was in government. It’s not as though Mahama hasn’t been president before, he has. He did more than four years because he was even a vice president. What did he do? What’s his record that is making him seek a second term?” he queried.
Mr. Mahama according to the President, is one of the worst Heads of State who could not add any value to Ghana’s economy.
