'Mahama boys' roast Yankah over comeback comment
Some supporters of former President John Dramani Mahama have criticised educationist, Kojo Yankah, for suggesting that Mr Mahama rethink his comeback to contest the flag bearer position of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
In a short comment on Facebook, Mr Yankah said: “My humble request is for you to give a second thought to your decision”.
Mr Yankah expressed his admiration for the former president and added: “John, my humble request is for you to give a second thought to your decision. If l am too late in coming, or if you have heard my reasoning before, l wish you well. Definitely you may hear other voices more compelling than mine. May the Good Lord guide your paths”.
Mr Mahama will be contesting 10 others for the flag bearer slot of the NDC.
However, the post has not gone down well with some known supporters of Mr Mahama.
In a reply, some of them accused Mr Yankah of accepting monies from the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and advised the AUCC founder to return the monies because any bidding he does for the NPP will not work.
Others also pointed out that the “unsolicited advice” by Mr Yankah “is definitely not based on good faith”.
Not all the comments were against Mr Yankah’s position though, as some people agreed with his sentiments.
