National Youth Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye also known as Nana B has labelled ex-president Mahama as a spoilt, rejected cocoyam who has nothing new up his sleeve to offer Ghanaians.
Henry Nana Boakye reacting to Mahama’s decision to contest once again as the flagbearer of the opposition NDC said:
“ Former president Mahama has been an MP, a Deputy Minister, a Minister, a Vice President and a president. He has seen it all, so what new thing is he coming with? He is in for a big humiliation”
Nana B assured that with him as the youth leader of the NPP, Mr. Mahama and the NDC will not have the space to operate and improve their political fortunes in the country.
Last week, Mahama submitted a letter of intent to run as flagbearer of the NDC promising to right all the wrongs.
He said” In coming to this firm decision, I have pondered deeply and soberly on the socio-economic and political landscape of our country today vis-à-vis the clear path we have started to build, aimed at positioning Ghana as a true middle-income country by modernising our dilapidated social and economic infrastructure and gradually inculcating in the Ghanaian, a sense of patriotism, self-belief and commitment to a one-Ghana agendum.
I have taken into consideration, the groundswell of support, the never-ending calls and encouragement from a large section of our party elders, members of our party, supporters and Ghanaians, from diverse backgrounds.
I have prayed diligently about the task ahead and I believe I owe a duty to God, and my country, to take our great party back into government to right the wrongs of the past and to put an end to the cries of the people under the current dispensation.
The 2020 election presents our party, the NDC with a great opportunity to offer yet again, visionary leadership driven by a commitment to create opportunities for all our people, not just a few.
Our collective victory in 2020 will end the increasing hardships, expand the base of our economy, create more sustainable jobs, ensure shared prosperity for all and pursue good governance including peace, unity and security.
As a servant-leader, I have listened with deep respect to the elders of our party, to members of our party, and Ghanaians from all walks of life, and I am honoured to avail myself of truthful, transparent, selfless, unifying and dedicated service to the NDC and above all, to the good people of Ghana”
