“Do you remember ‘Incompetent Mahama administration'?” he quizzed delegates of the (NDC) in the midweek.

“They kept saying this for long to the extent that one time because it was frustrating me, I replied them.

“Normally, I don't reply such things but you remember Trade Fair, I told them you have not been president before. Even the Presidency's wind has not blown around you, so you don't have experience. The role is not that easy, it is quite a task. So, one does it and hands over to another to continue,” he said in Twi.

“But they said I should shut up, I know nothing –  Incompetent Mahama, incompetent Mahama and they spoke the Queen's English too,” he revealed while addressing the NDC delegates in Suhum.
