Maame Kumasi speaking
A 90-year-old well-known card bearing member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Ashaiman Constituency has advised the party’s supporters in the municipality to vote against President John Dramani Mahama in the 2016 general elections.
The woman, Margaret Adongo alias Maame Kumasi, who was rendered homeless together with some residents at Lebanon Dam Site after a demolition exercise by the Ashaiman Municipal Assembly (ASHMA), said the NDC do not deserve to win this year’s elections to inflict more hardship on Ghanaians.
Speaking to DAILY GUIDE, the frustrated NDC woman indicated that “I have witnessed several political administrations in Ghana but have not seen a political party which is unsympathetic like this current NDC.”
She therefore called on residents of Ashaiman and Ghanaians in general not to vote for NDC again ‘to propagate its wicked and heartless style of administration.
“I voted for Rawlings, I did not sleep outside under President Kufour, I never slept outside under President Mills, why should I sleep outside under President Mahama?
“I voted for Mahama in the last elections, I will not vote for him again. I have Voters ID card and membership card of NDC but I will not vote for Mahama,” Maame Kumasi, who wept uncontrollably noted.
According to her, the husband used her pension to build the house at the location where the assembly deemed it illegal.
DAILY GUIDE has gathered that some members of the NDC in Ashaiman, after the statement of the aggrieved party member, raised funds to secure a plot of land at Zenu in the Kpone-Katamanso District of Accra to put up a house for her.
Some residents of the area, whose houses were also demolished, are planning to demonstrate against the assembly and government for assisting only the NDC woman.
