Iíll Campaign Against Mahama In 2016 óSays Randy Morgan

A staunch supporter of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Tarkwa in the Western region, Randy Kwabena Morgan, who joined President John Dramani Mahama’s campaign trail in 2012, has taken a volte-face saying: “I’ll personally lead a campaign against Mahama in the 2016 General Elections.”

The sudden turnaround, according to the man who declared his unflinching support for President Mahama in the run-up to the 2016 polls, was as a result of the president’s inability to fulfill many of his campaign promises including solving the energy crisis in the country.

“I trusted President Mahama and thought he would bring hope to many Ghanaians, especially the youth, and now see how he [President Mahama] has compounded the already existing problems,” Mr. Morgan said

“Indeed I’m highly disappointed in him and I think the youth in Ghana are equally disappointed in him as well,” the outspoken admirer of President Mahama averred.

Randy as he is affectionately called made these observations in an interview with Today via telephone on Saturday, February 8, 2015 in Accra.

He disclosed that he became an admirer of President Mahama after listening to Abeiku Santana of Okay FM in Accra when the latter called on the youth in the country to vote for the then candidate of the NDC, Mr. Mahama.

Randy who was fuming with anger in the interview told this reporter that he did not know what came over him to lead a campaign to garner votes for an “incompetent” president.

He went on to reveal that he was in the thick of affairs during the 2012 campaign where through his “instrumentality and ingenuity” he helped the NDC and President Mahama win more votes in the  Western region.

Like the Biblical Jesus Christ, he said he laid down his life for President Mahama and was not afraid of what might have become of him.

“I did not campaign for Mahama to come and give me money or even job but for him to create an enabling business environment where the youth in the country can do something for themselves without relying on the government,” he pointed out.

Randy, who apparently is an entrepreneur, expressed disquiet about how the Mahama led NDC-government has messed up the economy and particularly energy situation.

He disclosed further that his manufacturing company was gradually collapsing as a result of the current load-shedding exercise in the country.

“It is becoming difficult for me to run my company as I cannot afford the cost of running the company on generators,” he noted.

He blamed President Mahama for surrounding himself with friends and relations who are only with him to amass wealth at the expense of Ghanaians.

In his estimation, the problem with the president was his failure to invite people from the political divide to come and help him.

Governance, he explained, was about continuity and that the NDC should swallow their pride and allow others who could assist to come and support.

According to him, Ghanaians could not afford again to let President Mahama and his NDC retain power in 2016 considering the enormity of the hardship the ruling government has brought on the people.

“Change is a must and is non-negotiable in 2016 and I will lead that change as I did for Mahama in 2012,” he averred.

Though, the disappointed entrepreneur did not disclose which political party he would campaign for he said “Ghana should win 2016” and not a political party.
