President John Mahama has labelled members of the opposition New Patriotic Party as “first class liars”.According to him, members of the elephant family are specialists at telling liars about him and his government.
“When it comes to lies and untruths, they are first class. They can sow you a fitting cloth of lies and you can’t do anything about it. They are very good at it and it’s all because of the upcoming elections,” the President told a rally at Abisem in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region, where he is currently campaigning.
Touching on the campaign promises of his main contender Nana Akufo-Addo, Mr. Mahama urged Ghanaians to be cautious of a man who promises ‘One district, one factory” for votes, when he has never constructed any factory in his lifetime.
He said the NDC under his leadership has proven that they are capable of developing the nation just as was Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's first President.
"Between a man who has built a factory and another who says he wants to build a factory; our elders say if a poor and tattered man promises you clothes, examine him first".
