The ‘miraculous Obinim sticker’ that seems to do almost everything under the sun just gained more prominence as former president Mahama has recommended it to president Akufo-Addo.
The former president said the “super-incompetence” of the Akufo-Addo government can only be cured by an ‘Obinim sticker’.
He said this while addressing members of the NDC in Wa in the Upper West region Saturday, Mr. Mahama also admitted that even though the NPP appears incompetent in government, the umbrella family will have to work hard to win the 2020 elections.
“You do not win an election on the weakness of your opponent. You win an election because the electorate have confidence in you. And so even though NPP is proving super incompetent, we cannot sit and relax and say because they are super incompetent we are going to win the next election. So, we are going to work hard to win.” Mahama said.
Then he had a recommendation for the ‘super-incompetent team.
“I have been watching social media lately, and there’s something that has come, and I think it cures everything. It’s the Obinim sticker, the President and his government need an Obinim sticker. If it really works, then I think they need the sticker. So I am saying that we cannot depend on their incompetence, we need to work hard to gain the support of the electorate,” Mahama said.
The ‘Obinim sticker’ challenge is the latest craze on social media with many Ghanaians joking around it, sharing testimonies of what the sticker can do.
The sticker stories mock the supernatural claims of controversial miracle preacher Daniel Obinim. The challenge makes fun of the claims of Obinim by creating and attributing almost impossible occurrences to the inherent powers of the sticker, which is sold to followers of Obinim.
