Mahama warns chiefs against voting Nana because he will not tolerate their criticisms…
President John Mahama has warned traditional rulers against voting flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo into power in the coming elections.
The president issued out this warning while addressing party supporters and traditional leaders during his campaign at Suhum in the Eastern region. According to Mahama, Nana Addo will remove any leader who dares criticising him from office.
He said that the NPP flagbearer is a divisive leader who does not accommodate any form of disapproval from his subjects. Speaking in the local dialect, Mahama warns chiefs not to support a man who will destool them if they dare criticize his government. He pointed out to them that unlike the NPP, NDC accommodates and works with everyone.
Making reference to the series of suspensions as well as divisions in the opposition party, Mahama stated that Former President Kufuor’s warning to the NPP to elect a leader who is not divisive is a proof that the problem is emanating from the party’s leadership. He explained that with the tension in the NPP, Nana Addo’s government cannot maintain peace and unity in the country.
Speaking further, President Mahama warned the people not to allow the NPP’s promises to influence them. He described the numerous promises of the opposition party as unrealistic. As for the tax reduction policy, Mahama told the people that implementation of such will result to an imbalance between revenue and expenditure which will end up crippling Ghana’s economy.
