NPP launches home attack on President Mahama



It was a Mahama attack galore on Wednesday as NPP activists and a former northern regional minister of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) launched vicious attacks on the President, John Dramani Mahama and the NDC government over the poor management of Ghana’s economy.

The activists who were expected to outline what the NPP can do when voted into power come December 7, to party supporters and some undecided voters at a rally in Tamale, rather directed their arsenal on the president, John Dramani Mahama questioning his competence in managing Ghana’s economy.

The first to launch a personal attack on the President was a former Northern Regional Minister, Mr. Prince Imoro Andani, who claimed he shared the same bed with the president  during their senior high school days at Ghana Secondary School in Tamale.

Mr. Andani did not understand why the President Mahama-led administration failed to release feeding grants for schools in the three regions of the north.
“If we were not fed in our school days, we wouldn’t have been where we are,” he said and asked why President Mahama is superintending over Ghana when he cannot even help in releasing feeding grants.

The former regional minister questioned President Mahama about the whereabouts of the 200 million cedi Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) money.
Mr. Andani who failed to mention the name of a certain chief in the Upper East region, said to be a board member of SADA, whom he alleged to have said at a forum that the government borrowed 42 million Ghana cedis, out of the 200 million cedis and refused to pay back.

Mr. Andani, without any empirical evidence again claimed that, Alhaji Hudu Yahaya would have won the national chairmanship position during the NDC’s national congress.
“Our brother said he is from the north, and for that matter vote for him, but if you want Ghana to collapse to the extent that parents can’t pay their children’s school fees, no jobs for your children, vote for him,” he told party supporters at a regional rally in Tamale.

He claimed that the President gave Mr. Yahaya an option, either to step down or he, the president would step-down. “Does he like the people in the north?; He should have loved northerners in the NDC and not trying to find out where northerners are in Ghana.?” He quizzed.

He challenged the NDC to point out the factories they have created in the north to employ the youth. He therefore urged the electorate to vote for Nana Akufo Addo and their parliamentary candidates to change the fortunes of Ghanaians.

Mr. Andani also claimed that, but for the violent protest by some supporters of the NDC believed to be allies of the Tamale South Member of parliament, Mr. Haruna Iddrisu, he wouldn’t have been appointed as the Minister of Trade and now Employment and Labour Relations Minister, under the Mahama- led administration.

“If the NDC supporters didn’t destroy party paraphernalia’s, Haruna won’t have been a minister,” he said.

The President of the Northern Agenda for Change, an NPP youth wing, Mr. Ken Addae, said President Mahama cannot boast of anything in his home town Bole for his 20 years in politics. Mr. Mahama, Mr. Addae said, should have used his position to resolve an eight year old chieftaincy dispute in Gonjaland.

“They claimed that he (the president) used his position as vice president to resolve the Buipe chieftaincy crisis, why can’t he use his position as president to resolve the current chieftaincy disputes?” Mr Ken Addae quizzed.
