Let's support Mahama's return so Akufo-Addo can have an easy ride - Akomea to NPP
The former communications director for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akomea, has called members of the elephant family to support Mahama’s decision to contest the 202 presidential race.
In a post, the current managing director for the INTERCITY STC said the race would be fought on the record of Mahama as against that of President Akufo-Addo in 2020.
According to Nana Akomea, ‘’The NPP should be quietly supportive of president Mahama leading the NDC into the 2020 election. With any other candidate for the NDC, the election will be fought on president Akufo-Addo's record as against the promises of that candidate.
He added: ‘’Against president Mahama however, the contest will be about president Akufo-Addo's four-year record against the four-year record of president Mahama, a record that earned him the historic 44.7% vote. I will look forward to that contest.’’
Former President John Dramani Mahama has said he will not disappoint those calling on him to contest.
The former leader in a post told the supporters of NDC that he is waiting for the guidelines by the umbrella family as they prepare to elect the next leader to lead the party. His post read: ‘’
I want to congratulate the rank & file and executives of our party, the NDC, at all levels for the commitment and work rate we have put into our reorganization efforts.
The zeal and determination of the average sympathizer of our great party is greater and miles ahead of what it was after the December 2016 Elections.
We need to keep up with the momentum generated and follow the published timelines. To you the teeming supporters and sympathizers calling and requesting me to declare my intentions for the future, I wish to assure you today, that as a servant-leader, I have listened to your calls and reflected.
I will not disappoint you even as we await the publication of the party’s guidelines for selecting a new leader.’’
