A former member of Parliament (MP) for La-Dadekotopon, Nii Amasah Namoale is the subject of a lighthearted jab after it was announced on Saturday, February 23, 2019 that John Mahama was going to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) into 2020.
Namoale, who was in the studios of Adom TV in Accra for their coverage of the NDC presidential primaries, was a huge critic of Mahama and supporter of flagbearer aspirant Joshua Alabi.
The former MP had earlier claimed former president Mahama had what he referred to as “hyped-popularity”, and that Joshua Alabi was going to teach him a lesson.
The results, however, told a different story. About 95% of the 280,000 NDC delegates across all 275 constituencies, plus three specially-created polling stations in Ghana, voted for John Mahama.
Mahama will now lead the main opposition NDC into the 2020 general elections to try and beat New Patriotic Party (NPP) incumbent and Ghana president, Nana Akufo-Addo.
As part of allegations he levelled against the former president, Namoale also added that even though Mahama claimed he was popular, the former president was most likely buying his support.
“NDC will teach Mahama a lesson today. He should forget about this election because he won’t win. Ghanaians and the NDC for that matter are tired of him,” Namoale reportedly said on TV before results came in.
But TV cameras caught Namoale looking dazed and shocked when results trickled in. He fell back in his seat and threw his head backwards, all speechless.
Meanwhile, John Mahama has said that he was deeply touched by the overwhelming endorsement from the grassroots of the NDC.
After he secured a 95.23% endorsement to lead the NDC into the 2020 elections, Mahama said it was a "call to duty and a call to action."
