former President Mahama and wife Lordina Mahama
Action Movement of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the former first lady, Lordina Mahama and siblings of former President John Dramani Mahama of being the cause of the party’s defeat in the 2016 elections.
According to the pro-group of NDC, their downfall started as soon as the former President made the statement that ‘he was a dead goat’.
The group explained that his comments during the electioneering meant, he didn’t fear anybody nor respect anybody and was not ready to listen to anybody’s advise.
The spokesperson of the group, Kodzo Hamenya Keglo addressing Journalists in Accra said ‘We lost the 2016 elections because of John Dramani Mahama, his wife, Ibrahim, Alfred and the rest of his brothers and sisters’.
He said while JM was preaching made in Ghana goods (such as shoes, batik and locally made clothes), the wife was doing the opposite by printing T- shirts from China which is a huge disappointment to Ghanaian printing companies.
The 20 million pieces of T-shirts JM’s wife printed from China could have been shared to party members to print them locally and would have created a lot of jobs for Ghanaians.
‘When in the history of Ghana has a first lady printed campaign T-shirts and become the major source of party materials in an election? To the extent that the wife of the president printing Mayafi with her image on it, does she have presidential ambitions, she should tell us,’ he fumed.
Read details of their statement:
JM’s brothers are the main reason why we lost the 2016 elections, collecting all contracts from Airport, Roads, Cocoa Board, GNPC, ECG , VRA, Ministry of Power and all major contracts in the country.
If you don’t see JM brothers, you cannot get a contract and if you see them, then you have to pay money before you get the contract, frustrating foreign contractors and companies by taking Ghanaian contractors for granted and creating enemies for the NDC party.
JM’s wife, brothers and Baba Kamara appointing Dr Opuni, changing Gbevlo Lartey and bring Yaw Donkor as the security coordinator just to take us to opposition.
JM and the wife appointed Kofi Adams as the National Party Campaign Coordinator. In the history of our great party, we have never seen useless national organizer as such.
All Kofi Adams knows was to steal money and cars and disrespect everybody. Our party must investigate Stan Dogbe, Dr Opuni, Omane Boama, Felix Kwakye Ofosu and Kofi Adams for the campaign money that they have hidden must be collected from them immediately.
The communication director, Omane Boamah instead of communicating for the president will come on set and say Nana Addo can never become a President, when there are loads of issues for him to explain to Ghanaians.
We are aware of the people like Sylvester Mensa and the rest who are campaigning for the position of presidential candidates for the party for 2020.
We want to inform those campaigning that the earlier they stop this act the better for them since it is imperative to build the party now and properly heal our wounds than we can move along to achieve the objectives of our great NDC party for our country Ghana. The whole 2016 campaign did not have a message, because changing lives transforming Ghana and massive infrastructure development was not a good campaign message.
If we want to recapture power in 2020 we have to respect party elders, respect party structures, appoint non-arrogant appointees and we must mind our language when making statements to Ghanaians.
