Flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo has said sharing of goodies by President John Mahama on his campaign trail shows he has failed as a leader.
Nana Addo insists President Mahama does not deserve another term in office over the issue. “In the run-up to this year’s elections, the President and his wife are distributing items to Ghanaians.
If things were alright and there is money in our pocket, would we need to be given handouts of pans, outboard motors and the rest from him? If he has done very well in office, would he be distributing things to court of our support?”
There are reports that President John Mahama is sharing outboard motors, head pans and other items during his campaign in the Western Region.
His wife, Lordina Mahma has also been accused by the NPP of using her Foundation to undertake some humanitarian activities including donations to some schools which they claimed is a form of vote buying.
Speaking at the Avenue Chemist grounds in the Okaikoi North Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Nana Akufo Addo urged Ghanaians to give him the mandate to enable him implement a program of economic restoration.
“You remember he said previously that Ghanaians are forgetful people? Let’s show him with our thumb this year that we have not forgotten the hardship his government has put us through. With your help, we would change him,” Nana Addo added.
