President John Dramani Mahama has said Ghana currently needs a leader who can unify the country saying such traits are deficient in flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo.
According to Mahama, Nana Addo has in recent times demonstrated that he cannot unify his party; hence cannot be trusted with political power to govern the entire nation.
The NPP has been battling with internal wrangling that has led to the suspension of its National Chairman , General Secretary and Second Vice Chair, Paul Afoko, Kwabena Agyepong and Sammy Crabbe respectively.
Speaking on Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV, President Mahama said Akufo-Addo’s track record has been a divisive one.
“I’m campaigning and I’m saying that we need at this stage of Ghana’s history somebody who can bring the country together and my opponent’s track record does not fit that role because in his own party, he is not able to bring his people together. Today it is the truth, people can’t criticize Akufo-Addo in NPP, if you criticize him, they will suspend you or sack you or his attack dogs will set on you. Ask people in NPP, they are quite, they can see the bus is going to crash but if they say it they will attack them. So they are waiting for the bus to crash, and when it crashes I said they will take the bus send it to Kokompe repair it and put it back on the road for 2021.”
