“Mahama said nothing bad. In fact, his incompetence tag on Nana Addo was very mild. They are hopelessly incompetent and have done nothing for Ghanaians. Mahama was only making a point of how incompetent the Nana Addo government is”, he said.
Mr. Kwakye Ofosu was speaking on ASEMPA FM’s Ekosii Sen on Monday.

The former President who was addressing members of the NDC in Wa in the Upper West region on Saturday said even though the NPP appears incompetent in government, the umbrella family will have to work hard to win the 2020 elections.
“You do not win an election on the weakness of your opponent. You win an election because the electorates have confidence in you. And so, even though NPP is proving super incompetent, we cannot sit and relax and say because they are super incompetent we are going to win the next election. So we are going to work hard to win.”
