Former President John Mahama’s thirst for re-election into office in 2020 has seen him teasing Ghanaians anytime he mounts the podium to address his audiences.
Mr. Mahama, who was rejected by over one million votes in the 2016 presidential elections, has also resorted to blaming Ghanaians for voting President Akufo-Addo and the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) into power.
According to him, God has punished Ghanaians for voting the NPP hence their present economic plight.
“I strongly believe that God punished Ghanaians by making them vote for NPP and Akufo-Addo just to expose their lies and propaganda. They lied their way to power. They convinced Ghanaians with juicy promises,” he stated.
He claimed that the ruling NPP government made lofty promises which it had failed to deliver.
Mr Mahama is currently on a five-day tour of the Eastern Region, begging his party delegates to elect him as their flag-bearer for the 2020 general election.
He lamented: “Ghanaians are now crying for a comeback of the NDC to take them to the ‘promised land’. Where are their promises which include the ‘One district, One factory’, ‘One village, One dam’, ‘One district, One warehouse’ etc?”
“Ghanaians are looking up to the NDC to save them from the hardships they’re enduring under the NPP administration. I’ve been to nine regions so far and everywhere I go they tell me they’ve really regretted voting into power the Akufo-Addo government. They told me that they were deceived by this government, and things are tough now for them,” he added.
He claimed that God deliberately allowed the NPP to come to power “so that Ghanaians can appreciate NDC more because if we were to be in power by now, you would be complaining and saying the NPP would’ve done far more better than what perhaps we might have been doing, if we were still in power.”
He therefore called on the NDC to put its house in order so that it could recapture power in the next elections.
He also asked President Akufo-Addo to come out and ‘apologise’ to Ghanaians for reneging on his campaign promises.
