The National Nasara Coordinator of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kamal-Deen Abdulai, has stated that comments made by former President John Mahama on the George Ayisi Boateng saga is hypocritical and smacks of someone who has still not recovered from a heavy defeat.
According to the NPP Nasara coordinator, if Mahama who claimed to have accepted ‘terrorists’ into the country on “compassion grounds”, says he cannot forgive a Ghanaian who has apologized for a ‘wrong done’ then his hypocrisy is legendary.
“Mahama brought terrorists to this country illegally. When Ghanaians raised their voice, he looked us in the face and told us to be Christians and Muslims enough to accept those terrorists. What happened to that ‘his Christian’ beliefs?” Kamal-Deen quizzed.
It would be recalled that former President Mahama when responding to questions on the decision to bring into the country two Guantanamo Bay detainees in January 2016 said: “We must also look at the side of compassion.”
But Kamal-Deen who could not understand the stands of Mahama on the Ayisi Boateng saga quizzed “So when did those Christian values and the compassion of Mahama fly into oblivion? Is it because he lost elections?”
Shielding Corrupt Officials
Kamal-Deen who is also aspiring to become the next National Youth Organiser of the ruling party disputed claims by Mahama that he sacked some of his appointees embroiled in corrupt practices.
“When clear cases of thievery were brought to the attention of Mahama, he rather cuddled those corrupt appointees and sent them to his bosom. His response to the duping of this country by the Brazil criers was to send them to his bosom and cuddle them. Who did he sack? When some 155 journalists from over 40 media organisations across the country, petitioned President Mahama to demand sanctions against his staffer, Mr. Stan Dodge for assaulting Mr. Yahayah Kwamoah, a journalist with state-owned Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), not a cough was heard from Mahama” he stated.

A livid Kamal-Deen who was responding to some of the things said by the former president at Cape Coast during the NDC’s ‘unity’ walk said President Mahama’s comment on the Ghana post GPS and silence on the SSNIT Software saga again smacks of dishonesty on the part of the former president.
“Under your watch, this country was robbed a whopping $72million and you see nothing wrong with that?” he asked, mocking: “If you are dealt a heavy blow that lands you flat on the floor and you are struggling to get up, every available air becomes a weapon in your sight.”
