NPP Communicator blasts Mahama over petition against Abronye

David Prah, E/R NPP Communication Director

The governing New Patriotic Party’s Communications Director for the Eastern Region, David Prah, has described the former President and flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, as a “hypocrite”. This is at the back of a petition to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service by lawyers of the former President against the NPP’s Bono Regional Chairman, Kwame Baffoe, popularly known as Abronye DC.



The former President has petitioned the Director-General of the CID of the Ghana Police Service to investigate murder allegations made against him by the Bono Regional Chairman of the NPP.

The petition, presented to the CID by Tony Lithur, lawyer for Mr Mahama, claims Abronye DC has accused the former president and some members of the NDC of planning to assassinate some members of the NPP and killing the late President John Evans Atta Mills.

“My instructions are that in a recording on a TV programme on Net 2 TV, Madina, Accra, which has been circulating on various social media platforms, including Facebook and Whatsapp platforms, Abronye made certain false claims alleging a plot masterminded by His Excellency John Dramani Mahama to assassinate some NPP personalities, including he, Abronye DC, himself…,” the petition said in part.



Speaking with the Daily Statesman, Mr Prah accused former President Mahama of encouraging one Kelvin Taylor to be insulting and denigrating President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and other top government officials in the country.

“Mr Mahama can go ahead to petition the Inspector General of Police (IGP). Until he stops his Sammy Gyamfi, Kelvin Taylor, Asiedu Nketia, Koku Mawule Nenevor and Kwaku Boahen from insulting H. E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President of the Republic of Ghana, and other NPP executives, they will continue to expose his (Mr Mahama’s) and his NDC party’s hypocrisy,” he said.

He questioned why the former President would delight in the actions of Kelvin Taylor, but have an issue when Abronye responds in similar manner.

The NPP Communications Director further accused the former president of using the Abronye petition to seek “attention and hope to gain sympathy from his party members for his failure to name his running mate”.


Mr Prah appealed to the public to continue to support the Akufo-Addo-led NPP government, especially in this time of fighting COVID-19. He urged the public to continue to follow the necessary protocols such as regular washing of hands with soap under running water, use of alcohol based hand sanitizer, wearing of nose/mouth covers, practicing social/physical distance, staying home, if one has nothing doing outside, among others, to protect themselves against the dreaded pandemic. He further admonished them to ignore “the opposition leader, his cohorts and their level of dishonesty and hypocrisy.”
