NPP feeling uncomfortable about my come back – John Mahama

By Clement Edward Kumsah

NDC flag bearer aspirant John Mahama says the governing NPP is troubled by his decision to once again lead the NDC, in the upcoming 2020 general election.

Speaking to some NDC party faithful in Yendi on Thursday as part of his campaign tour of the Northern Region, John Mahama expressed surprise at the behaviour of the NPP over his decision to contest.

He said very often, one always hear members of the NPP questioning why the NDC would want to bring him back as their flagbearer as they would easily defeat him. He said, if it is true that the NPP would easily defeat him in 2020 then they should be rejoicing rather than complaining.

"Two teams are playing football and the other tells the opponent that if you put in a particular goalkeeper I will score you. That means the opponent is afraid of the goalkeeper," he said. He noted that the NPP is clearly afraid of his second coming, as they are aware that, he is the only candidate with the experience to win back power for the NDC in 2020.

Meanwhile, a member of the New Patriotic Party’s Communications Team, Eric Twum, has described former President Mahama ‘s comeback to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as an “ego massaging exercise”.

According to him, John Mahama is trying to make Ghanaians believe that he is extremely important to the country.

Eric Twum in an interview with Citi TV, emphasized that the track record of the former President is in the open for the Ghanaian people to make their decisions.

“Personally, I am indifferent. I don’t know what exactly he wants. He has had the opportunity as Vice President and he became President. His performance and the things he has done are there for everybody to see.”

“So for me, I call it an ego-massaging exercise and unfortunately he’s been able to drag his compatriots along for a personal and ego journey.”
