An aide to National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, Stan Dogbe has taken a swipe at President Nana Akufo-Addo for questioning why John Dramani Mahama wants to be president of the republic again.
President Akufo-Addo over the weekend questioned why the former president wants to be the leader of the country again.
But in a swift and direct response to the New Patriotic Party(NPP) leader, Stan Dogbe also described the sitting president as old, tired and nepotistic.

According to the former presidential staffer, why should an almost 80year old, tired and nepotistic President @NAkufoAddo be seeking re-election?”
With the December polls drawing near with each passing day, both the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have been taking aim at each other.
Over the weekend, President Akufo-Addo said the erstwhile Mahama government cannot be compared to his in any way.
He stated that comparing Mahama's administration to his was like comparing chalk to cheese.
“Comparing my administration to that of Mahama is like chalk and cheese, there’s no semblance…You shouldn’t worry me with things that will disturb my peace. His administration is the worst government the country has ever experienced in the last thirty years," the President told Wontumi Radio.

“Leave him. We are in an election year so he needs to say something and that’s what he is doing…I am confident that on December 7, the verdict will vindicate my hard work and the good works of this administration.”
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has been sighted in a video exchanging words with soldiers at a voters’ registration centre in the Bono Region.
Mr. Nketiah says the soldiers stationed at Banda in the Bono Region are refusing to allow some residents to register in the Electoral Commission's ongoing exercise.
A video on Kasapafmonline shows the NDC scribe is seen infuriated and exchanging words with the soldiers who had blocked the road to stop busloads of people from accessing registration centres.
