President John Mahama has labeled the New Patriotic Party's press conference organized by the party’s acting national chairman Freddie Blay Wednesday as “rabbit” press conference.
The NPP at that press conference responded to Mahama’s assertion that Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is unqualified to question his competence as “rabbit”
But the president at his final stop of his #ChangingLives #TransformingGhana tour in Ho Thursday said it was unnecessary for the NPP to organize a “whole” press conference to respond to his candid comments.
“I’ve had my say, and don’t intend to respond to that press conference,” he said.
President Mahama reiterated that he was focused and will not be distracted by such press conferences.
“I said in Accra that when a hunter heads to the bush to go and shoot an elephant, he doesn’t make time to stand and shoot at any rabbit that passes along. The press conference is a rabbit press conference. I won’t have time for rabbits because I am going to shoot an elephant,” he explained.
“On the day that Opana was doing his press conference to respond to me, somebody was also doing a press conference to say he is taking them to court,” Mahama ridiculed, citing the current division in the New Patriotic Party.
