- John Mahama was acting like a serial caller during the 2016 General Election according to an NPP MP
- Matthew Nyindam revealed that Mahama never gave solutions to problems Ghana faced
- Serial callers in Ghana are known for rampant calling radio stations to speak on issues
The Chief Whip of Parliament, Matthew Nyindam, has compared the behavior of ex-President Mahama during the 2016 election campaign to that of radio serial caller.
Mr. Nyindam says the former President acted too quickly during the campaign period and paid no attention at giving solutions to problems.
He said it was irresponsible on behalf of the president that he’d go to the extent of verbally attacking people who criticized him.
“It got to a time during the campaign season that President Mahama was speaking like a serial caller. He’d want to comment on every issue and that was very bad; it makes one thinks of you as a serial caller…,” he said.
The National Democratic Congress, with President Mahama as their candidate suffered a mammoth defeat during the 2016 election.
The party subsequently set up a 13-member committee to probe its defeat in the 2016 election.
The committee presented its findings to the National Executive Council (NEC) yesterday at the party’s headquarters.
The committee’s report, ‘Listening To The Grassroots’ recommends that the party takes urgent steps to restore the integrity of the register and take a holistic look at the party’s biometric electoral register.
Yamoah Ponkoh subsequently has complained bitterly about the failure of the report to apportion blame to persons whose inefficiency caused the NDC to lose the elections.
“The fact is that the people given specific assignments failed to perform and the report should have indicted those who were given specific assignments but failed to perform…,” he said further.
However, the Kpandai MP Matthew Nyindam, speaking on Adom FM on Tuesday said the NDC should note exclude former President Mahama from blame because he acted was like a ‘serial caller’ than a Presidential candidate during the elections’.
