Communications Director of the National Democratic Party(NDP) and an aide to Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings; Ernest Kofi Owusu-Bempah has fired salvos at President John Dramani Mahama describing him as a President who will go down the memory lane as having a “flip-flopping mentality” and lacking vision for the nation.
Owusu-Bempah was extremely disgusted about President Mahama’s decisions which he stated emphatically are “solidly against President Mills’ and purported to just spite President Mills in the face”, said the recent utterances and decisions by President Mahama have unearthed his real intent, hence proving that he may have schemed a plot against late President John Evans Atta Mills in order to ascend to the Presidential throne.
Speaking on Oman FM in Accra on Thursday, he noted that since the inception of the incumbent government, all decisions that the President has taken have sought to defy the position of the former late President Mills who according to him, President Mahama described as his “political mentor.”
To him, the President may have been working under the cover of darkness to ensure that he gains the Presidential mantle.
“All the things that President Mills came to do, he is doing contrary. That means when the President was on the throne, were you secretly plotting against him? Because decisions he has taken; the Ministers he has chosen, even to the extent that he could say that God in his own wisdom has taken the old man away and has brought in a useful John Dramani Mahama to steer affairs of this country. It means you hold a flip-flopping mentality or decision,” he disclosed.
He also bemoaned President Mahama’s sense of reasoning and therefore launched an attack on Member of Parliament (MP)for Nantong, Murtala Mohammed and the Managing Editor of the Al-hajj newspaper for making disparaging remarks in the previous government but the President could not call them to order; an indication that the President is “discriminatory”.
This he stated dents his call for regional and ethnic integration.
Reacting to the first reshuffle of President Mahama’s regional Ministers, the NDP firebrand added his voice to numerous criticisms that the President is indecisive but called on him not to waver in decision-making.
He insisted that the President has lost credibility in the public domain and so, admonished him to take a cue from his predecessors.
Explaining further, he cited names such as Ex-Presidents Jerry John Rawlings and J.A Kufour, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Nelson Mandela among other leaders who he said were gallant leaders.
He expounded that these leaders were “always prepared to take the necessary risk. They are bold and they don’t care the consequences when they take decisions”, therefore prayed President Mahama to follow their steps in order to resolve the nation’s deadlock.
He further chided him for reshuffling Ministers in a short span, asserting that he has “disgraced” the vetting process by the Appointments Committee in Parliament “because of his undecisive nature.”
To him, President Mahama lacks experience in governance, “the President is not decisive. The President lacks vision. The President has lost the plot as a nation leader…The President has reduced the Presidency to the lowest level.”
