- This report, according to Joy FM, claims the party was not united ahead of the elections
The actual reason(s) for the shocking and overwhelming defeat of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) continue to remain a mystery to many Ghanaians but a leaked document of the Kwesi Botchwey report is revealing how disunity tore the party apart.
According to this report cited by Joy FM, the opposition NDC suffered the menace of party disunity two solid years before the 2016 polls since a section of defeated party executives adopted a laid-back attitude working against the party.
This 455-page report intercepted by Joy FM has also revealed how ex president Mahama refused to embark on door to door campaigns but rather choose to throw cash at lavish bill boards across the country - a move, the report claims, created a negative perception from voters.
Joy FM is also claiming that the document has revealed how the communications team of John Mahama wasted money meant for the campaign ahead of the general elections citing how the funds meant for families of presidential press corp who suffered and accident got "edited".
YEN.com.gh had earlier reported of how the said report had blamed John Mahama for taking the role of a movie star in the lead up to the elections thus distancing himself from the teaming amount of poor voters in the rural zones.
Meanwhile some key members of the NDC are lacing their boots to contest for the presidential candidate role. So far, the names of John Mahama, Alban Bagbin, Joshua Alarbi among others have popped up.
