We'll meet you 'boot for boot' if you bring your wives and children to the war front - David Prah to Mahama
The Eastern Regional Communications Director of the ruling New Patriotic Party David Prah has descended heavily on the former President Mahama over what he termed as irresponsible "boot for boot war comments" that seeks to throw the country into flames.
He expressed disappointment in the former President Mahama describing him as a "war mounger" who does not need to be given a chance to lead even "A group of drunkards".
Speaking to the Press at Koforidua, Mr. David Prah mentioned that the former President John Mahama wants to sacrifice the peace of the country for his personal political ambition. He described the "boot for boot" statement as very irresponsible and unstatesmanship.
He stated that Mr. Mahama by that statement sought to appease his supporters who are "war hungry" and urged him (John Mahama) to bring his wives and children to the frontline for his boot for boot war in 2020 which will not be participated by the New Patriotic Party.
He mentioned that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo's government has delivered on 41 out 42 campaign promises such as the Free Senior High schools, introduction of NEIP, One District One Factory, Planting for Food and Jobs, Digitization of the economy, Mobile Money interoperability, Reduction in Electricity, Digital Address System, Creation of New Regions, Stamping out of corruption through wanton sole sourcing, Restoration of the Teacher and Nursing Trainees Allowances, IPEP, Renovation of the Railway sector, restructuring of the Technical and Vocational Education system, etc. which is bringing relieves to lots of Ghanaians.
He reminded the Former President John Mahama on numerous scandals that characterised his NDC government from 2009 to 2016 such as the GYEEDA, WAYOMI Cash, BUS BRANDING, NCA CHOP CHOP, SADA Scandals, SSNIT IT Thievery, COCOBOD Stealing, Inflated Contracts prices and the unforgettable DUMSOR that hit the country for almost 4years which destroyed Ghanaian businesses.
He indicated that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo's government is positioning Ghana on the right economic footing and therefore, will not give room for War Drummers.
"My brother look throughout Mr. Mahama's campaign tour across the country, he has not been able to outline a single policy message that seeks to add to the growth we are seeing now under the able leadership of H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, I am therefore, not surprised that Mr. Mahama goes round only to incite NDC supporters to violence in 2020 instead of the bread and butter message", Mr. Prah fumed.
He called on all well meaning Ghanaians to condemn Mr. Mahama and ask him to apologise and withdraw same.
Mr. David Prah commended the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo for the matured response he gave to Mr. Mahama that he (Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, the Commander in Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces) is focussed on the economic transformation agenda for Ghana and will NOT engage in BOOT for BOOT to spill the blood of innocent Ghanaians.
He concluded that the statement from the President and the Commander in Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, H. E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo puts him above anyone who will contest him in 2020.
