The campaign team of former president, John Dramani Mahama, has cautioned Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, to desist from insulting Mr. Mahama because any such insult in the future would not go answered.
“Let him [Bawumia] also be reminded that respect for political office holders is earned and that if he chooses to play it dirty, he would get it back in equal measure, press down, shaken together and running over,” the John Mahama Campaign Team said in a statement.
The caution comes after Dr Bawumia for the umpteenth time referred to Mr Mahama as “incompetent” at a meeting with Metropolitan and Municipal District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in Accra on Monday, 8 October 2018.
“I hear the incompetent one says he wants to come back, he wants to come and do more damage, as if he didn’t do enough damage; well we’re waiting for him, we’re waiting for him, we’re waiting for him, oh my God,” Dr Bawumia said.
But is a swift response, Mr Mahama’s campaign team said while Dr Bawumia is busily majoring in minors and taking to cheap and unsophisticated politics, the manifesto promises of the New Patriotic Party for which Ghanaians voted for them have yet to be fulfilled.
The statement further added that:
The office of the vice - president was brought into disrepute in a viral video in which Dr Mahamudu Bawumia whilst pretending to be performing official duties descended to his lowest to call former president John Mahama names.
It is sad to note that after nearly half way through the four-year term of government of which Dr Bawumia is the vice president, he still lacks the presence of mind to appreciate the distinction between his role as vice president and that of his propagandist running mate days on campaign platforms.
Whilst reminding Dr Bawumia that any needless and unprovoked attack on former president Mahama on any day will not go answered we wish to remind him that the office of the vice president is conducted with grace decency and maturity not reckless and unrestrained talk.
