POLITICS: Mahama's Campaign Has Fallen In Water" - Akufo-Addo
President Akufo-Addo has expressed outrage at what he calls a campaign of lies and propaganda being waged by the flagbearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama.
According to the president, the former president is struggling to convince the Ghanaian electorate with his campaign message hence he has resorted to untruths.
The president made these comments at a rally at East Legon in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency to wrap up his two-day tour of the Greater Accra Region.
"Mahama's campaign has fallen in the water. His campaign has landed in confusion, misrepresentations and outright fabrications. That is the campaign of John Dramani Mahama today in Ghana".
"You cannot go to the presidency of Ghana with lies and fabrications. The Ghanaian people will not allow that to happen,". President Akufo-Addo said.
He had recently criticized Mr. Mahama for his assertion that the Mahama administration started the Free SHS policy.
Former President John Mahama said during his tour of the Upper East Region had said that his erstwhile administration had started the free SHS policy and that the Akufo-Addo administration was only continuing the programme.
"We started the programme and the NPP came and continued it. Unfortunately the implementation has been very poor, and so it ended us in the double-track".
But president Akufo-Addo maintains that the NDC presidential candidate's assertion is lies and "borne out of one thing, and that is his Campaign is failing to catch up with the electorate".
"He has seen that his campaign is collapsing in confusion, fabrications and now outright lies".
