- A member of the NPP's communication team, Padmore Baffour Agyapong has described John Mahama as the worst ever President the country has had under the Fourth Republic
- Mr. Baffour Agyapong chastised the NDC Flagbearer, blaming his numerous ‘defaming comments’ against the NPP on his inability to accept defeat and recover subsequently
- He also expressed worry about the fact that Mr. Mahama is still complaining about any and everything, even without substantial evidence
A member of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) communications team, Padmore Baffour Agyapong, has described John Mahama as the worst President in Ghana’s history.
According to him, Mahama is yet to recover from the disgraceful loss he suffered during the 2016 general elections.
“Mahama is yet to wake up to the fact that he lost. He’s resorted to complaining about everything,” Mr. Baffour Agyapong said on Net2 TV.
“He has arisen again to contest in 2020. To get a chance, he has taken to defaming the ruling government in the eyes of Ghanaians." “Maybe he is crying because after ruling, he has seen that of all Presidents Ghana has had, he has been the worse under the fourth Republic and it has become burdensome on him.”
His comment was in response to Mahama’s claims that the Akufo-Addo government is being “wicked” to cocoa farmers in the country.
Interacting with cocoa farmers and the people of Enchi in the Aowin Constituency of the Western North Region, Mahama said: “I feel very sad for our cocoa farmers. We had good plans and started implementing good policies for the cocoa sector.”
According to him, cocoa farmers had better annual yields when the fertilisers were made free to them.
The NDC flagbearer wondered why the Akufo-Addo government would halt such a move and rather sell the fertilisers to the cocoa farmers.
However, Mr. Baffour Agyapong said Mahama’s claims are inaccurate, insisting the NPP government has done enough for farmers.
“Even if that’s the case, the NDC can never talk about schools and farming under the NPP because they might be unlucky and get beaten. It’s obvious the good things the NPP is doing for this country especially in the areas of farming and schooling, and instead of you to appreciate that, you want to cry for cocoa farmers?”
“Cocoa farmers are not unreasonable. He went to Sehiwi Wioso and his welcome was nothing to write home about and yet without learning his lessons, he won’t say something better when he returned there, touting the NPP’s achievements and pledging to do better. He keeps destroying our image,” he added.
