Former President John Mahama has responded to President Akufo-Addo for saying he will not respond to criticisms of flagbearer aspirants about his government.
According to president Nana Addo, he does not deem it fit replying flagbearer aspirants of various opposition parties because they want to destruct him.
But Mahama addressing delegates at the opposition National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) 9th delegates’ conference on Saturday at the Trade Fair Center in Accra, said,
“What I wish to remind Mr. President is that, as presidential aspirants, we are also citizens and not spectators, and we are only amplifying the voice of our fellow citizens. Mr. President can choose not to respond to us, but eventually, citizens will demand that response and exact a verdict [on the government],” Mahama said.
Nana Akufo-Addo earlier in November said he does not find it needful to respond to criticisms of presidential aspirants from about his government.
Akufo-Addo has said he will only respond to criticisms from a presidential candidate and not an aspirant.
