The National Organiser of the NPP, Sammi Awuku, has stated that the abysmal performance of former President John Dramani Mahama, during his eight-year tenure as Vice-President and President, puts him in a bad state to be trusted with the destiny of the country again.
“For John Mahama to come to say that he wants to be re-elected to continue what he was voted out for means he has lost touch with his own track record. What good work were you doing that you want Ghanaians to vote for you again?” the NPP organiser asked.
Addressing a press conference in Accra yesterday, the NPP organiser stated that the attempt by the former President to return to the presidency, after his massive defeat in 2016, shows he did not reflect on his performance in government before taking a decision.
He added that Mr Mahama’s changing positions on certain key national policies gives credence to his indecisiveness and incompetence, saying that is why he does not need to be given the opportunity to become the President again. .
“John Mahama says he will implement Free SHS when elected. Should Ghanaians replace the man who dreamed it, believed it and delivered it for one who never believed it, ridiculed it and fought against it? Once again, candidate Mahama wants to associate himself with success, but he does not know how to solve the problems to achieve the success story. He has no blueprint for achieving this success he dreams of.
“The concept of Free SHS for 1.2 million teenagers is too complex for the NDC candidate and the party. Between the two main candidates, it is obvious which one truly cares for the youth of Ghana and therefore the country Ghana,” he said.
Vote for competence
Mr Awuku therefore urged the electorate to retain the NPP government for the continuation of its life-changing policies.
“NPP is ready for December 7, 2020. For Ghanaian voters who came out in their numbers to register during the voters’ registration exercise, the real show of your civic duty is to come out in your numbers on Monday, December 7 2020, to vote. Come out, observe all the protocols and vote for your welfare.
“On the ballot paper, vote for your wellbeing; on the ballot paper, vote for the future of your children; on the ballot paper, vote for your community; on the ballot paper, vote for your country Ghana; vote for the NPP and Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to protect and build on our gains as a party and our nation,” he said.
