Members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Youth Wing have vowed to block ex President John Mahama from attending a scheduled meeting with President Nana Akufo Addo today, Tuesday April 18.
The group which intends to march from the party’s National Headquarters in Adabraka, Accra to the former President’s house says it’s vehemently opposed to him attending the event.
President Nana Akufo Addo will hold discussions with former Presidents of Ghana at the Flagstaff House.
The event will afford the President the opportunity of tapping into the rich experience of the former leaders including ex Presidents J.J Rawlings, J. A Kufour and John Mahama.
The leaders are expected to hold frank talks with the President, one that will advance the course of the nation. This will be the first time the first gentleman of the land is meeting with his predecessor in such planned event.
President Akufo Addo has already stated that he’s in a hurry to develope Ghana and enhance the living conditions of the citizens and his handlers say he’ll stop at nothing at realizing his objectives.
But speaking on Kasapa News, Tuesday morning, leader of the group Kweku Philip said it will be a wrong move for ex President John Mahama to attend the event and share ideas with President Akufo Addo, after the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) consistently described him as an incompetent president while he was in office.
He added that the ex President Mahama will find himself in an ‘unfriendly’ company if he attends programme.
“If he attends this event and something occurs to him, he’ll have himself to blame. This clearly will be three against one as ex President J.J Rawlings who is the founder of the NDC party has amply demonstrated that he’s in bed with the NPP now. Mahama will not be comfortable in the midst of the four leaders who’ll me meeting today. We’ll not allow him to step foot at the meeting.”
