Insults are Mahama’s stock-in-trade – Mustapha Hamid
The Minister for Information, Mustapha Hamid, says he was not surprised about the ‘pigs’ analogy made by former President John Dramani Mahama since the latter has the penchant for insulting his political opponents.
Former President Mahama addressing party supporters after the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s Unity Walk in Cape Coast on Sunday, 6th, October, 2017, said that, ”Have you read Animal Farm before? It says all animals are equal. That’s how they started. When they did the revolution, they said all animals are equal.”
He added,“Then when Napoleon and the “PIGS” started enjoying, they had to justify why they were enjoying so they said, all animals are equal but some are more equal than others. “When they [NPP] were looking for your votes, President Akufo-Addo said they shall open the opportunities of this country to all Ghanaians, irrespective of their party or ethnic affiliations. He came to power and now that the *pigs* are enjoying, they say some Ghanaians are more Ghanaian than others. For something like this, you don’t call the person to the Flagstaff House, draft an apology letter for him and ask him to sign. You sack him at once"
Speaking to Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive Tuesday, Mustapha Hamid mentioned that the former president’s analogy does not hold adding that Stan Dogbe and the ‘Montie 3’ issues happened during his era which he turned a blind eye.
“President Mahama is noted for passing such comments. Sometime ago, he stated that Ghanaians were not appreciative and all that. He has always been like that and it is okay if he wants to continue like that.”
