Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that anytime the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is in power, people lose their jobs.
According to Mahama, professionals perceived to be affiliated with the National Democratic Congress (NDC) are not treated well by the NPP.
In a report filed by 3news.com, Mahama further stated that when the NDC was in power, nothing of that sort happens.
He made this known while speaking as the Special Guest at the Annual Conference of the NDC Professionals Forum on Thursday, April 29, 2021.
Mahama said a lot of people who support the NDC hide under the covers and are not willing to show their faces as supporters of NDC for fear of being booted out of their jobs.
“It is not the same when NDC is in power. People very freely identify with the NPP when NDC is in power and they don’t suffer any adverse consequences for it. Not the same when they are in power. There is a lot of vindictive hunting down of people who are believed to be NDC and taking them out of job,” he said.
In other news, Justice Gertrude Torkornoo, a member of the seven-member panel that sat on the 2020 election petition, says the Supreme Court expected the petitioner to provide pink sheets supporting his allegations of electoral irregularities and lack of a clear winner in the presidential poll.
Commenting for the first time publicly about the judgement, Justice Torkornoo said the petitioner failed in adducing critical evidence to back his case.
“There was a spreadsheet alleging vote padding of 4,693 votes in 26 constituencies and we said we would have expected that the pink sheet for those polling stations would have been exhibited to prove the allegation instead of a spreadsheet,” she stated at a recent forum organised by CODEO, 3news.com reports.
