Communications Minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, says the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is not at worried about the return of former president John Mahama.
According to her, it would be suicidal for Ghanaians to hand over the administration of the country back to Mr Mahama.
“John Mahama is not going anywhere. There is nothing wrong with dreaming and so he should continue to dream. They were in a comfortable lead during the 2016 elections and trust me John Mahama and his party are still in a comfortable lead,” she said.
Mrs Owusu-Ekuful was speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosiisen Thursday on the decision of former President John Mahama to contest the flagbearer slot of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The NDC is set to elect a presidential candidate on January 26, 2019 after an intervention by its council of elders led to an extension in the date of picking forms and the contest itself.
So far, seven contestants including former PresidentJohn Mahama will be contesting to lead the party against President Akufo-Addo and the NPP in the 2020 polls.
But the MP for Ablekuma West insists Mahama’scomeback will rather be a recipe for disaster.
“If Ghanaians vote for him again, then its their own cup of tea,” she added.
