Mahama not presidential material - Fadi Daboussi

President John Mahama “is not a presidential material”, Ghanaian-Lebanese author and journalist Fadi Daboussi has said.

“He has failed and must give way to somebody of better presidential calibre”, the pilot who was detained by the BNI a few months ago over his critical articles about the president told Chief Jerry Forson on Accra100.5FM’s morning show Ghana Yensom on Wednesday, 2 October.

“Everybody knows the next president of Ghana is Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. If we changed Mahama, Ghana is going to be on a better path because Ghanaians are tired, there is no money, there is hopelessness,” Mr Daboussi said, wondering if the NDC were voted into power to “destroy the country or to advance the country.”

Meanwhile, Mr Daboussi has said the Green Book containing achievements of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) is “fraught with inconsistencies and absolute lies,” Ghanaian-Lebanese journalist and author Fadi Daboussi has said, adding: “… The book contains total lies …”

This, he said, has prompted him to launch a Red Book to expose the Green Book’s “lies.”

“Ghanaians deserve better. … Why all the lies?” he asked Chief Jerry Forson.

He wondered why the NDC’s Green Book contains “artistic impressions” of touted achievements of the Mahama administration instead of pictures of the “real projects.”

“This means the thing is either not there or it is ongoing. Put the picture of the real project in the book,” he dared the NDC.

Citing the Adidome Road to buttress his point, Mr Daboussi said the condition of the stretch was “scandalous” even though the NDC has been touting it as one of its achievements. “I burst two tyres on that road recently …” he complained.

He also wondered why Finance Minister Seth Terkper would have told Parliament that: “We have done only nine Community Day Senior High Schools”, when the Government keeps touting that it has done more. “You have contradicted yourself.”

“The Green Book is full of lies. It contains artistic impressions of projects that are nonexistent. An example is a hospital in Salaga which does not exist,” he said.
