Former President Mahama’s hopes of returning as President for the second time, would not be realized, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party has said.
Mr. Antwi-Boasiako has said that the "incompetence" of the former president when he had the chance to make a difference in Ghana, has dashed his dreams of returning for the second time.
According to the NPP scribe best known in the political circles as Chairman Wontumi, being President isn’t like shooting a movie where stories could be segmented into part one and two.
“If you take a leader like former president Mahama, the first thing that comes to mind is his incompetent traits. I have said it over and over the guy just didn’t know what governance was about. He was just fortunate he became President, he never toiled for it so never did he value it.
It was always about having fun for him and siphoning monies meant to develop Ghana into his personal accounts. He only cared about his wife, his brother milking the state and having fun with lazy and wicked guys like Stan Dogbe and John Dumelo”
“This was the one we entrusted Ghana’s destiny into his hands. He was driving us to the path of destruction and he thinks we have forgotten about his legacy. I think he knows no shame, he doesn’t realize his incompetence has killed his career”, Wontumi strongly said.
Former President John Mahama has told delegates of the NDC in the Bolga East Constituency in the Upper East Regions that the party, has a good chance of winning the upcoming general elections in 2020 considering the poor performance of the NPP and the many unfulfilled promises.
According to him, the failure of the NPP government to fulfill its ‘juicy’ promises ahead of the 2016 elections was an indication that, the government lacks thought-through policies to improve the plight of Ghanaians.
But Chairman Wontumi maintained that former president Mahama is just clutching on to straws just to be a presidential candidate of the NDC.
“Since he left office, nobody misses him. He isn’t wanted and he knows it so desperation is forcing him to say things like the NDC has a chance in 2020”, Chairman Wontumi added.
