Former President, John Dramani Mahama is not incompetent in all aspects of life as Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has always sought to portray, a former MP has said.
According to Ben Aryeh, who is a former New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Upper Denkyira West, the former President ought to be respected by all because ‘he is skilled in taking bribes’ and ‘other forms of unapproved gifts’.
Ben Aryeh said this when commenting on Dr Bawumia;s description of the former President as an ‘incompetent fine man’ on Adom TV on Monday monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com .
The Vice President told NPP youth in Tamale that Ghana needs someone who is capable of managing the country’s affairs and as far as he is concerned, Mr Mahama who he describes as “incompetent” does not make the cut.
“People say that John Mahama is a nice man. Oh yes, he may be a nice man but he is a nice man who if you give the economy, very soon, you cannot get teacher trainee allowance, nurses trainee allowance, pay your child’s school fees, get a job to do, agriculture will be declining, electricity prices will be going up.
“Is this the kind of nice man we want? He may be a nice man but he is an incompetent nice man” he said while addressing the governing New Patriotic Party’s supporters at a National Youth Rally in the Northern Regional capital, Tamale.
But Ben Aryeh disagrees as according to him, John Mahama is competent in one field which many have not realised.
“The fact that Mahama is described as incompetent does not mean he is incompetent in every aspect of life…he is competent in certain fields and this include taking Ford Bribe from Burkinabe contractor but not in governance…,” he said.
