General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia has fired salvos at the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), asking him to give up his campaign and rather go and relax in the United Kingdom.
According to Asiedu Nketia, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has turned into a visiting flagbearer who only flies to Ghana to campaign and then goes back to London.
Addressing supporters of the NDC during its campaign launch in the Adentan Constituency on Sunday, the NDC General Secretary described the sporadic nature of Nana Akufo-Addo’s campaign as ‘One Campaign, One London’.
“Can this solve Ghana’s problems if he becomes president?” he asked.
The former Wenchi West Member of Parliament urged the supporters not to vote for the NPP presidential candidate because if he becomes president, he estimates, he will abuse the presidential jet.
He said Nana Akufo-Addo may not make a single landing in Ghana and will expend the country’s money on aviation fuel as he will be all over flying in the skies.
He said currently the 72-year-old is in the habit of popping up to campaign and then recoils by flying to London.
NDC’s Campaign chairman said the recent parliamentary balloting conducted by the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) is evidence that John Dramani Mahama will win the December 7 elections.
He said the result of the balloting, which sees NDC third on the parliamentary ballot, tells that God has blessed the president.
Quoting John 3:16 from the Holy Bible, Mr Asiedu Nketia explained that Number 3 shows that President Mahama will be the third John to win an election in 2016.
