Those who voted for Mahama wasted their votes – Nduom


The presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, continues to have a dig at President John Mahama, stating those who voted for the latter in the 2012 general elections wasted their votes.

According to him, the present economic challenges facing the country cannot be an exclusive fault of president Mahama, but that of those who voted for him.

Addressing the PPP fraternity Tuesday at Bortianor Ngleshi Amanfrom in the Ga South Constituency of the Greater Accra region, Nduom said: “…All those who voted for John Dramani Mahama they have wasted their votes and the votes they have wasted that is the votes that have now sent us to IMF because John Mahama said he cannot manage the economy.”

He thus argued that going to the IMF for a bailout is a suggestion that the country is heading to the abyss with hiking unemployment figures, and debilitating power challenges.

This, he said, was as a result of the wasted votes of 2012, warning that a second term for President Mahama will be disastrous, further crippling the economy.

President Mahama simply “doesn’t have the footing” to make the state work, Nduom said on Starr Chat last week.

Former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie asked Ghanaian electorate to reject the President Mahama this December “if they want to secure their future.”

“If you want a job, sack Mahama. Simple,” he stated Sunday.

But the spokesperson of the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) 2016 campaign team, Joyce Bawa-Mogtari, said the president deserved a second term because of his impeccable performance.

She told the media President Mahama has the demonstrable track record to improve the living conditions of Ghanaians and to ensure sustainable development.

She said the NDC “expect Ghanaians will like us, will agree with us and [will] be convinced that his Excellency John Dramani Mahama indeed deserves a second four-year term.”
