Mahama was chosen to lead NDC because of his wealth; not competence – Ishmael Addo alleges

A member of the Communication team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) says former President John Dramani Mahama was chosen to lead the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) because of his wealth and not competence.

Ishmael Addo alleged that “John Mahama was not the candidate the NDC wanted but the party needs money and so they decided to choose him because he has money more than any other person in the party”

Mahama ‘bloodshed’ speech

The NPP Communicator further lashed the former President for ‘making comments that can lead to bloodshed’

According to him, “it’s sad such comments were coming from the former President; it would have been pardonable if party communicators made those comments…I think he has already seen his defeat”

Background

The former President, delivering a speech at the 28th anniversary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), issued a stern warning to the Electoral Commission (EC) ahead of the 2020 elections.

According to him, the party will not accept the 2020 election results should they suspect any underhand dealings by the EC.

“As leader of the NDC, I wish to serve notice that we shall do all our parts to ensure that our country remains peaceful and that the electoral process proceeds smoothly, but let nobody assume that we will accept the results of a flawed election”, he cautioned.
