Lawyer Obiri Boahen, the former Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has issued a stern warning to former President Dramani Mahama regarding his comparisons between his administration and that of President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo.
Boahen’s caution comes in response to Mahama’s criticism of President Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP government, particularly focusing on their alleged mismanagement of Ghana’s economy. Mahama expressed his disappointment in the country’s current state during his “Building Ghana Tour” in the Eastern Region.
In an interview on the Oyerepa Breakfast Show monitored by newsandvibes.com, Boahen asserted that Mahama should refrain from making such statements, emphasizing that the former President left nothing positive for the country during his tenure.
Boahen acknowledged the challenges faced by the current NPP administration but insisted that President Nana Addo has demonstrated competence in managing the country.
He questioned Mahama’s credibility in comparing his administration to that of Nana Addo, stating, “Who are you (John Mahama) to compare yourself to Nana Addo’s administration?”
While acknowledging the difficulties faced by the NPP government, Boahen cautioned Mahama against drawing comparisons, asserting that Mahama had nothing positive to offer Ghana during his time in office.
He concluded with a warning to Mahama, urging him to avoid making unfavorable comparisons between his administration and President Nana Addo’s government. Boahen suggested that if approached for further interviews on such topics, he might express opinions that Mahama would find unpalatable.
