Mahama Has Zero To Offer – Majority Leader

The Majority in Parliament has urged Ghanaians not to waste their votes on the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its flagbearer, ex-President John Dramani Mahama because they have nothing new to offer them.

According to the caucus, the NDC has not changed since 2016 when it lost the election by over one million votes.

Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin told the media in Parliament yesterday, “The only thing that has changed is its running mate. Even so, the running mate was part of the government and she was the main advisor on educational policy.”

“She advised the government to the effect that Free SHS was not possible. So it is the same old team – from the flagbearer through to the running mate and all their former Ministers with some in Parliament and others outside Parliament,” he stated.

The Majority Leader has called Ghanaians to vote against the NDC in the upcoming December elections because it offers no new ideas for the country.

He claimed that since the NDC’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, would only be eligible for one term, the party might experience a leadership crisis if it were elected.

For him, a Mahama-led administration would lack a sense of urgency in governance due to the same reason: one term eligibility.

Mr. Afenyo-Markin stated that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), offers a brighter future for the country than Mr. Mahama.

“We have the NDC candidate who has had the opportunity to serve as vice president and president. He has been vice president for three and a half years before, and he’s been president for some four and half years.

“We know his track record. He is the same person with the same old team coming to tell us that they have something to offer,” he asserted.

“And we dare say that from day one that the government will be in crisis because those party people will be struggling for who should be the next leader. Ghanaians need a stable government with focus. Dr. Bawumia offers a better future than John Mahama,” he stressed.

For the NDC running mate, the Majority Leader said Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang has no project to show in her home region, the Central Region, indicating that she has not been able to start on a single infrastructural project for people to earn their votes on December 7.

Mr. Afenyo-Markin noted that, unlike the NDC, the NPP government has established landing beaches across the country, with the Central Region benefiting from the projects.
