Mahama's only

Mahama's only "challenger" in the NDC feels left out; throws support behind Nana Addo for presidency

A "high profile" member of the National Democratic Party just defected from the party to throw his unequivocal support behind the largest opposition party, New Patriotic Party and it's presidential candidate.

You may not hear much of George Boateng, but he is the only member of the NDC who "contested" John Mahama in his bid to represent the party as the presidential candidate.

Sadly, Mr. Boateng picked the ‘wrong’ forms in his attempt. And it seems the aggrieved fellow is ready to change camps.

George Boateng popped up on stage at the final mega rally by the NPP on Sunday to throw his open support behind Nana Addo and address the teeming supporters.

He mounted the stage to vouch for the credibility of the flagbearer of the NPP, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, saying “he is not a thief”.

He told the gathering that President Mahama had colluded with the former Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Sylvester Mensah, to steal monies from the health insurance scheme for the 2016 campaign.

He will bring economic reforms,” Mr Boateng said about the former Abuakwa Member of Parliament
