The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has indicated that former President John Mahama’s comeback is not a threat to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the NPP government.
According to the acting Director of Communications for the NPP, Yaw Adomako Barfi, Mahama will be no match for the NPP even if he wins the flagbearership race of the NDC.
In an interview, he said, “We are not bothered at all. We are on sound footing and we are doing the right things. Ghanaians are the best judges so we are not worried. After all they have a lot of arsenal on them. Alban Bagbin has said Mahama’s coming is a bomb.Looking at what Goosie Tanoh has said, looking at what Ken Dzirasah has said. I’m assuring Ghanaians that we are not disturbed at all and we are not even going to be disturbed because we have the mandate, and we need to deliver on the promises.”
He said the NPP government is focused on delivering the promises it made to Ghanaians prior to the 2016 general elections.
Mahama on Thursday, August 23, picked his nomination forms to contest the 2020 presidential elections of the NDC.
Ahead of his declaration, Mahama on Wednesday called on the founder of the NDC, Jerry John Rawlings at his office in Accra.
Among those who have indicated their interest to lead the party are former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Sylvester Mensah, Dr. Ekow Spio Garbah, a former Trade and Industry, former Vice Chancellor of the University for Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), Prof. Joshua Alabi, Elikplim Agbemava and second deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin.
