The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has rubbished accusations of corruption leveled against President Akufo-Addo by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Addressing a news conference on Wednesday, December 2, 2020, a deputy campaign manager of the party, Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, said when unethical people like those in the NDC assume the governance of a country, then what happened to Ghana pre-2016 is what happens; you have a demoralized society, collapsed businesses, broken financial sector, collapsed educational system and a ruined economy.
Abdul-Hamid said: “So, it is resorting to throwing in fake videos alleging corruption on the part of the President. It will not wash. You take old videos of a campaign donation and distort it, seeking to make it look like a recent video? Come on! Is the NDC so incompetent even at faking things? And listen to the spurious explanation- that the President took a bribe of 40,000 dollars? (160,000 in 2016 terms?) Pathetic souls!”
“Governance is serious business. When unethical people like those in the NDC assume the governance of a country, then what happened to Ghana pre-2016 is what happens. You have a demoralized society, collapsed businesses, broken financial sector, collapsed educational system and a ruined economy,” he added.
He has therefore urged Ghanaians to reject the presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, on December 7, 2020.
According to the party, the former president lacked the finesse and the needed acumen to propel Ghana to the next level of her development.
“Have you seen that JM is now re-writing the entire NDC manifesto? JM has absolutely no faith in manifestoes. He doesn’t believe in them. He sees them as empty ritual which are just a part of the requirements for prosecuting a campaign.
“But it is even worse that he does not believe in his own manifesto. You can be wishy-washy about everything and anything. But to be wishy-washy about a manifesto too?” Abdul-Hamid said.
