The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho has repudiated criticism from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) that President John Mahama speaks as though he is “possessed”.
Following Mahama’s damning attacks on the personality of Nana Akufo-Addo, NPP’s presidential candidate in the forthcoming elections, the party held a press conference Thursday –where it described Mahama as someone speaking as possessed.
“The president is talking as if he is possessed. He is using words as if he is seeing things [in duplicate]. First, he insults Nana Addo for daring to re-echo the cries of the Western Region over the bad state of their roads, then he dares accuse Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, [who is] one of the foremost champions in the struggle against military dictatorship and for democracy and freedoms, as a dictator,” said John Boadu, the NPP’s acting General Secretary.
Reacting to the NPP’s chief scribe Thursday, Mr. Anyidoho admits that Mahama is possessed but by the truth.
“If you are possessed by the truth, and the truth is coming to you as a vision from so many angles, what is wrong with it? There is nothing wrong with it,” he said on Accra-based Class FM.
“So the president is possessed with the truth. If I wake up in the morning, and I’m possessed with the truth, and I’m not possessed with divisive tendencies, I’m not possessed with divisive tyranny, I’m not possessed with the spirit of dictatorship, but I’m possessed by the spirit of truth, and I speak the truth, what’s wrong with it?” he added.
