‘NDC CAN’T WIN 2024 ELECTIONS WITH MAHAMA’ – EIU Survey Reveals

According to the Economist Intelligence Unit, NDC cannot win the 2024 general elections with John Dramani Mahama as its flagbearer.

Mahama led the NDC through two failed electoral campaigns in 2016 and 2020.

According to the EIU’s five-year estimate for Ghana, announced on April 13, 2022, the opposition party has a better chance of winning the next general election.

As President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo completes his second term in 2024, he has said that he would pass over to a New Patriotic Party, NPP, President, but the opposition is bracing for a showdown with whoever emerges as the NPP’s flagbearer in the 2024 elections.

The administration of President Akufo-Addo is facing various issues, including unemployment, an economic slowdown, and corruption, among others, which London-based experts say will feed residents’ antipathy against the ruling party.

“Our baseline estimate is that persistent public unhappiness with the sluggish pace of governance improvements—such as infrastructure development, job creation, and corruption reduction—will activate anti-incumbency forces and lead the voters to seek a change,” according to the EIU research.

WHY I WENT TO COURT – Former President, John Mahama Finally Speaks

Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that he filed the election petition at the Supreme Court to calm the charged political atmosphere to avoid electoral violence.

The petition, he said, was also to test the legal right of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

“The atmosphere was quite charged, a few of our people took to the streets. There was a threat of violence and we didn’t want to go down that path, so it was better to use what the Constitution has given us.

“Once we filed the suit, I noticed that it calmed everybody and of course we went and got 7:0 on every issue that we raised,” he stated.

Mr Mahama stated this while addressing the United States Chapter of the NDC at the Bentley University, Waltham, Massachusetts, on Sunday, March 27, 2022.

Touching on the conduct of the 2020 elections, Mr Mahama said a number of anomalies occurred in the elections which affected the results.

That, he said, resulted in anger among supporters of the NDC.

“We have all done elections before and at the printing press, all the political parties are supposed to send agents to the printing press. We sit there from the time they start printing until we finish.

“When they finish, we all tally how many ballots they were asked to print. We all look at the numbers and everything and if we are satisfied, then all the agents sign a certificate of completion to say that we are satisfied, that it tallies with the number you were asked to print,” he said.

Mr Mahama said that was what happened at the printing press and all the agents left after the printing of the ballot papers.

He, however, said one of the NDC’s agents had to go back for his laptop bag, only for him to see millions of ballot papers being printed.

When he asked why they were printing extra ballot papers, they said the EC had asked them to print. Out of frustration, they said they were doing that in case there was a second round. But seven people will not go for second round. Ballot papers for a second round is only for two people, the top two. No proper explanation on why those ballot papers were printed was given.

“Some of the people were seen later carrying ballot papers and we reported them to the police. Up till date, nobody has been charged or prosecuted for carrying those extra ballot papers,” he stated.

“These are the things that happened in the elections and so we thought the elections weren’t free and fair and so we went to the Supreme Court. One, to test our legal right and then second, to also calm the atmosphere,” he added.

Mr Mahama said he, therefore, decided to rely on the provisions of the 1992 Constitution by going to the apex court to resolve the matter.

The seven-member panel of the Supreme Court, by a unanimous decision, dismissed the petition on March 4, 2021 on the grounds that it lacked merit.

Judicial reforms

Mr Mahama alleged that the country’s judicial system was being manipulated by political powers and, therefore, called for judicial reforms.

He stated that the NDC party had a problem with the Judiciary, hence the need for urgent judicial reforms.

“We do have problems with the Judiciary, I must say. I think that it is necessary for some internal reforms to take place there. It is necessary for the Chief Justice or whoever is responsible to make some reforms.

“Most of the governance institutions have been politicised. I give the example of the Judiciary. It is only in Ghana that a Supreme Court will make a decision that a birth certificate is not proof of citizenship,” he said.

THE DOLLAR HAS RATHER ARRESTED BAWUMIA – Former President, John Mahama

Former President John Mahama has mocked Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia over the outrageous decline in the value of the cedi.

Speaking at the launch of the TEIN [Tertiary Education Institution Network] App held at the University of Professional Studies, reported by blogger Ghgyper, Mr. Mahama said Ghana was currently facing hardship “on a scale never witnessed in the 30-year history of our Fourth Republic.”

“General incompetence, corruption, and waste of scarce resources have combined to make life simply unbearable for the generality of Ghanaians” he said.

Mr. Mahama further said the youth were suffering the most from broken promises from the government.

“The government has bungled the important task of securing the welfare and wellbeing of our young people through sound policies in education and ensuring the availability of employment opportunities,” he said.

The former president cited inflation, rising fuel prices, and the depreciation of the cedi as key challenges facing Ghanaians.

After Vice President Bawumia famously said the Akufo-Addo administration had arrested the depreciation of the cedi, Mr. Mahama contended that “the dollar has rather arrested him.”

“So we are looking for him. We can’t find him. I asked IGP if he had the key so that we could find where our Vice President was, and he said he doesn’t have it and doesn’t know his whereabouts,” Mr. Mahama said.

EVEN GOD CAN’T STOP ME FROM VOTING FOR NDC AND MAHAMA – Mr Beautiful

Actor turned politician, Mr Beautiful, has stated that not even God can stop him from loving ex-President John Mahama, and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Mr Beautiful, known as Clement Bonney, was recently seen in a viral video, contending with movie producer/director Famous, just after the premiere of a movie Mr Beautiful starred in. According to Mr Beautiful, he played the lead role in the movie, ‘Galamsey’. But he was neither on the poster nor the trailer.

The producer explained to the media later that Mr Beautiful wasn’t on the poster because of his affiliation to the NDC which will affect his film negatively.

In a phone interview on Onua FM with James Clarke, Mr Beautiful said he’s faced challenges in his acting career because of his love for the NDC and the former president. But not even God can stop him from loving the former president.

“Imagine, I have been home for seven years. I was sabotaged because of my NDC affiliation. Because of this, I went to exile. Yet the blood that flows in my veins is NDC. No amount of intimidation can make me revert that statement or the love I have for John Mahama and the NDC.

“Even God himself, if he tries, the angel will tell him, hey, the guy has decided not to rescind his decision,” Mr Beautiful declared.

Y’all know how Bawumia slammed Mahama’s government after he imposed additional taxes during his presidency.

According to John Dramani Mahama, “talk is cheap”.

“Hmm! “Talk is cheap,” he captioned the video on his verified Facebook profile.

“A passionate” Bawumia, who was then the opposition leader’s running mate, stated in the same interview that the government’s announcement of a 1% tax on investments proves the Mahama led administration was desperate because they had mishandled the economy.

‘THE HYPOCRISY’ – A Plus Descends On Sarkodie For Going Soft On Akufo-Adoo But Hard On Mahama

Popular social commentator, A-Plus has chided rapper, Sarkodie over his recent comment where he lamented about the harsh living conditions in Ghana.

You would recall that on Monday, December 6,  Sarkodie took to his Twitter page on December 6, 2021, to share his thoughts on the hikes in fuel prices that has necessitated commercial drivers to embark on a strike.

“The people are going through it!!! We always do!!! All we ask for is the right environment to hustle/ be productive,” the Sakcess label boss earlier wrote.

The Sarkcess Music CEO’s comment comes on the back of criticisms on social media where many accused him of being silent over the country’s hardships and somewhat contributing to it with his ‘Nana toaso’ statement during the 2020 general elections.

But after sharing his views on the fuel hikes on Twitter, Ghanaians dug a post from Sarkodie sometime in 2013 where he registered similar complaints against the Mahama-led administration in a seemingly harsh approach.

Wow fuel prices go up! Smh. Paying Mahama a visit this evening.” his comments read.

It was in this light that A-Plus after a careful comparison of Sarkodie’s tweets during the era of both governments lambasted the rapper for his subtle way of criticising the NPP government .

The hypocrisy. During John Mahama time as president the hardship was caused by his incompetence abi? Now there is serious hardship under Akufo Addo, instead of telling him the truth you added “we always do” to make you look good before them. When you spoke about hardship under John Mahama didn’t “we always do?” Or we were living in San Diego before he became president?” A-Plus stated.
