Ruling NPP campaign manager, Peter Mac Manu has been urged to stop lying about the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), former president John Mahama.
A deputy Director of Elections for the opposition party in Dome-Kwabenya, Albert Aheto criticised the Mr Mac Manu for denigrating Mr Mahama at press conference last week.
The former NPP national chairman alleged the former president doesn’t have what it takes to win the 2020 polls, claiming the latter has become an albatross on the neck of the largest opposition party.
But Albert Aheto, a political activist, deflated the claims by the NPP stalwart, explaining that “His Excellency John Dramani Mahama was not appointed to lead the NDC” but was petitioned by many to lead the party into victory.
“it is obvious that he [Mac Many] has lost touch with the realities hence the need to bring him to the realities,” Aheto said.
“The incoming President went through a vigorous internal Elections and was elected by overwhelming majority,” he added “Mahama is the best candidate by all Standard.”
“It is on record that, it took you the NPP more than five years to make John Mahama unpopular and in less than a year John Mahama became popular more than ever before.”
For the record, President Mahama was forced by NDC MPs, Former Ministers, Former MMDCEs and NDC grassroots to come back to lead them to rescue Ghana from the inept Nana Addo and NPP administration,” Aheto stated and quizzed, “how can such a person be described as an albatross?”
He said Mr Mac Manu is confused and seriously struggling to catch up with the realities in Ghana, saying he failed “as campaign Manager… to conduct an internal elections for your sitting Members of Parliament and as at now you do not have a Presidential Candidate not to talk about a Running Mate in less than Seven months to Elections..”
He said that ” clearly means that the NPP is not ready for the Election 2020 hence needs a New Voters register to ‘rig’ the elections.”
“Nana Addo’s abysmal performances, the insecurities, Corruption Scandals and unfulfilled promises are the burdens Nana Addo put on you and the NPP’s neck,” Aheto jabbed.
He continued ,”the media cabal, the lies, the pressure from civil Society groups were tolerated by Mahama but Nana Addo is intolerant of just one tenth of those pressures.”
To the youth activist, Mr Mahama who he describes as “incoming president” is not an albatross on NDC’s neck “but the best Candidate that is coming to rescue Ghana from the inept Nana Addo and the NPP.”
In conclusion, Mr Aheto said “my advice to Mr Mac Manu, his failed Nana Addo and the NPP is to start writing their handing over notes now.”
