Nana Akufo-Addo, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate, has said that there is no animosity between him and President John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Speaking on Accra-based Peace FM on Friday, Akufo-Addo described Mahama as a good friend of his.
He said they struck a friendship when they were both in parliament.
“Mahama is my friend. We were all in parliament together for the same period,” he said.
Mahama and Akufo-Addo have harshly criticised each other on the campaign trail, but Akufo-Addo stressed in the interview that their differences were merely political.
The NPP leader went on to criticise Mahama’s performance in terms of improving the country’s infrastructure.
Akufo-Addo said the realities on the ground do not support the president's remark that he has massively improved infrastructure in the country.
“Our roads are bad,” he said, adding: “The president is campaigning with helicopter, but I campaign by road and, so, I know the conditions of roads in the country,” he said.
