President Akufo-Addo was responding to assertions made by the former president Mahama to the effect that there will be strife, conflict and chaos in the aftermath of the December 7 elections.
But the NPP leader opined that “It cannot be right that when you are President, you say one thing, and, when you become the leader of the opposition, you say another.”
“I think that it is important for the credibility of our national public discourse that public persons are seen to be consistent in their views and advocacy,” he added.
President Akufo-Addo also stated that former president Mahama’s inconsistency is a matter for him and his conscience.
