National Youth Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye has asserted that former President John Dramani Mahama is being cajoled to comeback to contest for the NDC Flagbearer slot due to his limitless financial resources.
According to him, most, if not all the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Executives egging the Former President on to contest again for the Presidential slot, know deep within their hearts that he [Mahama] cannot win power in the 2020 elections, but are only tagging behind him due to their desire to squander the vast amount of money at his disposal.
Speaking on Okay FM’s "Ade Akye Abia" Morning Show, Nana Boakye averted that the NDC is aware that the actions and inactions of former President Mahama, cost the party over 1 million votes in the 2016 General Elections.
“The only motivation why some of these people are shamelessly rooting for former President Mahama is that they will at least have the opportunity to pocket some of the cash because he has everything at his disposal; his family has the financial muscle and so they are luring him to lose the 2020 elections again. But this time, the defeat will be far worse”, he asserted.
“After the defeat, these same people will neglect him and look for a fresh candidate to battle the NPP in the next 8 years because then, they will be more hopeful of winning clinching it”, he stressed.
He therefore prayed for former President Mahama to have a successful campaign and possibly win the Presidential slot as it will make it more easier for the NPP to win the 2020 elections; snidely saying “‘even expired Akufo Addo’ as Mahama described him (Nana Addo) was able to beat him [Mahama] overwhelmingly; a difference of over 1 million votes”.
