In other news, the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has called on Ghanaians to reject former president John Mahama at the December polls because he lacks focus.
Speaking at a press conference in Accra on Monday, August 31, 2020, the national director of communications of the NPP, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, said Mahama’s records make him unfit to seek for another mandate.
“It is the NPP’s strong contention that candidate John Dramani Mahama does not have the focus and competence necessary to take this country in the right direction,” Mr. Asamoa noted at the presser which was monitored by YEN.com.gh.
