The National Democratic Congress Member of Parliament for Adaklu constituency, Kwame Agbodza Governs has dismissed calls by the New Patriotic Party for Ghanaians to reject former President John Mahama in the 2020 elections.The ruling Party on Sunday appealed to Ghanaians not to make the “biggest mistake” again of entrusting the country’s resources, its future into the hands of John Mahama and his NDC.
The NPP said the previous Mahama administration virtually grounded the economy by taking oil-rich Ghana from a growth path of 14% to 3.4%.
Speaking at a press conference in Accra Sunday, April 7, 2019, the General Secretary of the party, John Boadu said Mahama has nothing new to offer Ghanaians other than the incompetence and corruption Ghanaians witnessed under his tenure.
“Say no to a redenominated candidate (Mahama) for he never changes. Mahama – the Value is the same. More importantly, the NDC alternative under Mahama is still scary,” he stated.
But speaking on GHONE TV Monday, Mr. Agbodza said a redenominated Mahama is better than a hopeless Akufo-Addo who is only interested in holdiong twonhall meetings outside the country and not resolving the myriad of problems facing the country.
“Ofcourse a redenominated Mahama is better than a hopeless Akufo-Addo,” he told host Serwaa Amihere Monday morning.
According to him, Mahama’s decision to contest the 2020 elections is causing fear among the rank and file of the NPP forcing them to hold Press conferences on Sundays.
