A political scientist with the Kwame University of Science and Technology, Dr Mohammed Abass has expressed disappointment in a reactionary comment by President Akufo-Addo to some declarations made by former President John Dramani Mahama.
He observed that the President was “judgmental” and did not demonstrate enough tact in his remarks, suggesting it has the tendency to stir up the already rising political tension in the country.
President Akufo Addo on Tuesday in Ho described the former President, John Dramani Mahama as a ‘desperate loser’ who wants to plunge the country into chaos following the former President’s recent comments on the Electoral Commission’s decision to compile a new voters’ register.
Mr Mahama had indicated that if the EC “fails to listen to us and still proceed with the compilation of the new voters’ register, they must come out and accept responsibility for whatever chaos or violence that breaks.”
President Akufo-Addo however in response pointed out that “the inconsistency is a matter for him and his conscience. But I want to assure him that there will be no strife, there will be no conflict after the December 7 general elections which has preserved the peace and stability of the 4th Republic for the last 27 years, will continue to prevail, and they will not permit any poor, desperate loser to plunge this country into chaos. Ghana is bigger than the ambitions of any of us.”
