The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayawaso West Wougon, Emmanuel Kyeremateng Agyarko has advised President John Dramani Mahama to excuse the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party from his campaign message.
Mr. Agyarko said the President should rather focus his campaign message on issues related to development under his administration.
His appeal followed the President’s call on Ghanaians not to vote for an opposition candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, whom he described as a dictator.
Addressing party supporters at Bimbilla in the Northern Region, President Mahama criticised at the NPP flagbearer accusing him of being divisive and leading the campaign to suspend the two national executives of the party
Mr. Agyarko said neither NPP nor its flagbearer did anything wrong in suspending its National Chairman, Paul Afoko, and that has been affirmed by the Accra High Court.
“Has he forgotten what is happening in his own party? The NDC has birthed about three different parties and the wife of the founder of the party has broken away to found her own party.
A party which calls its founder a barking dog that has been tamed, and the President is talking about divisiveness,” he said.
He was of the view that President Mahama has no message for Ghanaians, hence his constant attack on the NPP flagbearer.
“In his 2012 manifesto he told Ghanaians he would improve certain areas to make life better, that is what President Mahama should be updating the people on,” the MP added.
Mr. Agyarko, a former Chief Executive of the Food and Drugs Authority under the Kufuor-led administration lamented the deteriorating National Health Insurance Scheme, the ailing economy and the high level of corruption in the current government and urged the President to deal with those issues.
