NDC demands apology from Nana Addo for calling President Mahama incompetent
The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has demanded an unqualified apology from the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for calling President John Dramani Mahama incompetent.
The NDC says the consistent attacks on President Mahama by Nana Akufo-Addo and his party must end if they want an issue-based campaign.
President Mahama has on his recent campaign tours in the Western and Northern Regions attacked Nana Akufo-Addo’s personality and his leadership style, describing him as a dictator and divisive.
Speaking on Citi Fm, the NDC Campaign Spokesperson for the December 7 general elections, Joyce Bawa Mogtari said the NPP must first stop the insults if they want a clean campaign ahead of the December 7 polls.
“When you look at the accusation from the opposition, what I want to ask is who was the first to describe president Mahama as incompetent, a man who has credited himself as an assembly man, an MP, a Deputy Minister, Minister, Vice President and now President of Ghana.
“No matter the circumstances, no matter the level of context I think that a flagbearer of any political party must at least show some respect and decorum in their speech and the way you describe your opponent so yes am saying President Mahama is in campaign mood and has decided to meet the opposition boot for boot.
“One thing I can say is that president Mahama is the first to admonish us to conduct a clear and issue base campaign but of course we are all humans and we demand that the same respect with which president Mahama approaches issue to do with government, his personal relation, human relations and humility. I believe that we need the same modicum of decorum from the opposition leaders as well,” Joyce Mogtari maintained.
