Kokompe traders gave Mahama the embarrassment of his life when he went campaigning at the Kokompe spare parts market yesterday [Wednesday].
President John Mahama who is on a campaign tour in the Greater Accra Region took his campaign to Kokompe, a suburb in the region.
However, the President was greeted with the unexpected as the Kokompe traders waved him off their premises with the sign of change (rolling of the hands) popularly used by supporters of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP). This they did amidst loud chants of ‘yeresesamu’ meaning ‘we are for change’ while dancing to Shatta Wale’s hit song ‘Chop Kiss’ which played in one of the vehicles in the President’s convoy.
Meanwhile, the embarrassed Mahama was left with no option than to wave at the jeering traders from his SUV vehicle as he was driven out of the market.
The video of the unfortunate incident has gone viral on social media with many arguing that it is not a surprising occurrence as the area is an NPP domain. Others on the contrary opined that the incident is a clear proof of the President’s imminent defeat at the December polls.
