President Nana Akufo-Addo has stated that he will not respond to criticisms by presidential aspirants but will only respond to presidential candidates.

“I am sure you have seen and heard some of the presidential aspirants of the leading opposition party taking jabs at my government in order, ostensibly, to prop up their campaigns.

President Akufo-Addo said this at the University for Development Studies in Tamale.

He said “and, whilst at it, they are desperately trying to get me to respond to them, I will then, engage those who still think Ghanaians have short memories.

“Let me state here and now, for the record that President Akufo-Addo will not respond to presidential aspirants, he will respond to presidential candidates that have been duly elected by their parties,” the president noted.

President Akufo-Addo does not give a hoot about criticisms from presidential aspirants, ostensibly in reference to criticisms from presidential hopefuls of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) which is lacing its boots to select a presidential candidate to help wrestle power in the 2020 general election.

About 12 aspirants including former President John Mahama are campaigning across the country for the votes of members of the party at their presidential primary.

Former President Mahama had in the last few weeks been jabbing the President and his Vice, Dr. Mahammudu Bawumia over their handling of the economy.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo and Dr Bawumia had not been able to turn the economy around despite promising the citizenry what he termed as “heaven.”

He also accused them of lying their way to power and have not been able to live up to expectation. –citinewsroom.com
