The outspoken Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu, has described President John Dramani Mahama’s new appointees as ‘injury-time’ players (ministers) and for that matter, the president should stop deceiving himself because it would not save him.
Bugri Naabu said the Mahama-led National Democratic Congress (NDC) government should rather start preparing to hand over power to the NPP after the November 7 elections because Ghanaians will not give the NDC their mandate.
He stated that both old and new appointees cannot make any positive impact in addressing the numerous challenges and difficulties Ghanaians are grappling with, adding that further appointments will amount to insulting and undermining the integrity of Ghanaians.
Speaking to DAILY GUIDE, Bugri stated that “John Mahama has started dancing backwards instead of dancing forward,” indicating that the president appointed a Mamprusi as the Northern Regional Minister and Konkomba as the Deputy Chief of Staff just to make sure the NDC takes the Mamprusi and Konkomba seats, “but the president should know better that he is deceiving himself and not the Mamprusis or Konkombas.”
According to Chairman Bugri, out of the seven constituencies in Gonja Land, the NPP is targeting six seats come November 7.
He urged the electorate to show the NDC government the exit because it had drained the national purse which is causing the collapse of industries and lack of investor confidence in Ghana’s economy.
Chairman Bugri said the only way to address the current problems facing Ghanaians is to elect Nana Addo with Dr Mahamudu Bawumia into power, and assured the Northers that the development challenges confronting them would be resolved by a Nana Addo-Bawumia administration.
