Former President John Dramani Mahama has advised Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to focus on his desire to be the flagbearer rather than being fixated on him.
Speaking on the KSM program, Mr. Mahama said he does not understand why the vice president will use him as a target in his campaign as concerns about his handling of the economy are being raised as the New Patriotic Party’s flagbearer race heats up.
I don’t know why Bawumia can’t get my name out of his lips – Mahama
“When I was in office, he just kept waxing about, you know, giving lectures about how he was going to handle the economy, how we were incompetent and all that and I said look, you’ve never been in office; you and your presidential candidate. You don’t know what it takes to be in office and they have learnt it. Today look at them.
“Their opponent; well one of their presidential flagbearers, he said ‘strategist? excuse me.’ Nobody takes the cedi from GHC4 to GHC12. He should be answering those questions. And it’s a primary in the NPP so he should concentrate on telling NPP and the country what he can do. I don’t know why I am boogeymen man for him. He can’t get my name out of his lips,” Mr Mahama said.
