The Presidency Is Not WASSCE For You To Write NovDec
Richard Asante Yeboah who is the Deputy Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has subtly shaded the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama by reminding him that the Presidency is not like an examination where when you fail, you can come back and write resit.
In an interview on Darling FM, Mr. Richard Asante Yeboah said that John Mahama failed miserably to fulfill his promises when he came into power and Ghanaians will not tolerate his incompetency for the second time.
“We know that in Ghana we have Nov Dec where if you sit for the WASSCE and you don’t pass very well you can write the resit during the November December examination to better your results.”
“However, what NDC and John Dramani Mahama must accept and understand is that with the presidency, there is nothing like Nov Dec with regards to the governance of this country. John Mahama was given an opportunity to be the president and when the time was up for him to account for the good people of this country, he lost the election beyond repair.”
he further stated.
He concluded by saying;
“He failed miserably but we won’t use our presidency as Nov Dec for him to come and resit as President again. Whatever privileges that he needs in his entire life, Ghanaians have provided it to him accordingly,”
