Director of Communications for Ghana Gas Company Limited, Ernest Owusu Bempah, popularly known as Aboa Apapo, has claimed that all is not well between former president John Dramani Mahama and the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia.
According to him, the party’s General Secretary is only pretending to be in good terms with its flagbearer because of his personal gains and mischievous agenda.
Speaking on Net 2 TV, the outspoken politician boldly said although there is a rift (which emanated from 2016) between the two, Asiedu Nketia is pretending to support the campaign of Mahama because of his money and nothing else.
Narrating how the issue transpired between the two, Owusu Bempah said “Asiedu Nketia has a big issue with John Mahama. He’s just pretending to support the campaign because John Mahama has money. Asiedu Nketia before 2016 elections had an issue with Mahama because the former President gave a contract awarded to him to his brother. So he has never been happy. They even took him out during the campaign time. This is what Asiedu Nketia says, he has the money so let him waste it.”
Furthermore, Owusu Bempah accused the former president of sponsoring the attempted coup plot at the President of the Republic with the sole aim of destabilising the country and taking power from Akufo-Addo.
According to him, Mahama is hungry for power and knowing very well he will lose the 2020 elections, is doing all he can to secure his position as the next president of the country.
“What shows NDC and Mahama know nothing about this coup? Look at NDC’s communicators and the things they say about the coup d’état and the line of communication shows they are defending it, to the extent that NDC lawyers have been called to defend those coup plotters. It’s a planned thing, if it were to happen in a different country, Mahama would have been picked up. Dr. Mac-Palm is one of the key people within the NDC so we don’t need a soothsayer to tell you that these people are behind it. The agenda is bringing us to this attention that, 2020 Mahama knows he’s not going to win the elections,” he revealed.
Cautioning Mahama and the NDC to tread carefully in what they do, Aboa Apapo said, “we’re giving them a warning that the things about to happen and the things we know and about to bring out will shock them.”
