Being Envious Of Prez Mahama’s Achievement Is A Sign Of Defeat – KEEA NDC Tells Nduom, Others

Constituency Executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abirem (KEEA) are asking the Progressive People's Party (PPP) and other political parties complaining about the President's 'Accounting to the People tour' to stop being envious of the achievement of the president but work hard towards achieving sanity in their parties.

At a news conference held by the party at Elmina, the NDC queried Dr. Nduom, who started the conversation on his Facebook wall and the other parties who joined the conversation later, why they will not join the president to celebrate the overwhelming achievement chalked in his short period in office but rather resort to series of envious comments.

According to the KEEA NDC Executives, such remarks indicate fear and reveal a sign of defeat boldly admitted by the parties ahead of the 2016 elections.

President John Mahama is embarking on a tour dubbed Accounting to the People, a tour which has seen him crisscross parts of the country, commissioning projects and touting his achievements as president.

His critics however, have accused him of exploiting his position as president by appealing to the people to renew his mandate given the infrastructural development he has executed.

The first to speak was the 2012 presidential candidate of the Progressive People's Party, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, who is strongly inclined to believe that the president was campaigning when the Electoral Commission is yet to open nomination and to approve candidates for election 2016. That he felt was an abuse of incumbency.

The New Patriotic Party shares similar concerns even though it believes there is a thin line between the president's official duties and his campaign strategies.

The KEEA constituency executives of the NDC intimate that the president cannot be an 'arm-chair' president and thus has to go round to let the entire nation know what his government has done.

According to them, the PPP and the other parties who see the President's action as a wrong move cannot simply stand the massive achievement chalked in the short period the Mahama administration has been in power.
