Dennis Kwakwa, the Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer of the governing NPP has disclose widely that the 2020 flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama as a leader who is ungrateful to the people of the Ashanti Region.
He made this following some comments made by the opposition leader that it’s is difficult to be a member of the NDC in the Ashanti Region while praising those who have been odds to own up as members of the party albeit unfashionable to do so in a region that is dominated by supporters of their archrivals the NPP.
“It’s not easy to openly declare that you are a member of the NDC here…it is either you would be intimidated, or be looked down upon like a leper; they look at your face and express shock that you are an NDC member as if you are a leper or you are unclean”, the former president John Dramani Mahama disclose this statement while addressing party faithful at an interaction session with foot soildiers and party executives as part of his ‘Thank You Tour’.
In a discussion on Angel In The Morning piloted by KT on Kumasi-based Angel FM, Dennis Kwakwa said it is not surprising the former president would described the Ashanti region as such because he had used even more disparaging explanations in the past contributing to his discussion.
“John Mahama is bent on disrespecting the people of the Ashanti region at the least chance; we are not surprised because that has been his stock in trade over the years. The NDC as a party has never acknowledged the votes that they get in the region, so it is high time their supporters advised themselves”.
