Former President John Mahama has hit back at Lord Commey, Director of Operations at the Presidency over his claim that the ruling New Patriotic Party will win power again against the national Democratic Congress in the next elections.
“I don’t care who becomes national chairman, I don’t care who becomes flagbearer, what I care is that the NPP continues to reign in this country. The power I have I will not hand it over today or tomorrow.
“Breaking the 8, it’s become a slogan. I don’t have any 8 to break. I am continuing; tell your friend, we are continuing…you are just scaring yourself as if there is something to break,” stated by Mr. Commey at the Party’s Conference last week.
According to Mahama, the comments by Lord Commey are careless and reckless, adding that such is driven by arrogance of power.
Mahama said Lord Commey was making reference to what President Akufo Addo had stated and nothing more.
“This is the sovereign will of the people who elected you to serve. You know when arrogance of power sets in then you hear people speak so carelessly, and recklessly. I think it is most unfortunate. It’s been arrogance of power; he was quoting the President, the President said he is going to hand over power to an NPP President, he will hand over to someone he knows well; it is not your will it is God’s will and the will of the people.
John Dramani Mahama made these assertions in Volta Region where he is embarking on his “Thank You tour”.
