NDC was a ‘slavish whore’ to Mahama - Lord Hamah

A young outspoken member of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Lord Hamah, brother of former Deputy Communications Minister under the Mahama administration, Victoria Hamah, has said the party became “a slavish whore to state power” under President John Mahama (JM).

“Under JM, there was no collective governance,” Mr Hamah wrote in a tirade on his Facebook page.

While calling for a total overhaul of the leadership of the NDC as a party, Mr Hamah said: "The NDC record in government is a scandal.

“We need to accept that to move forward. For eight years, especially the last four years, we witnessed a kind of political incompetence unrivalled in Ghana's history.

“Related to this was the intoxication that took over the heads of youthful government appointees.

“Key power brokers who were fattening on the foliage of state life did not even have any idea on the location of the national party office, not to talk of their constituency offices!.”

He continued: “The claim that the present NDC leadership is social democratic is not scientific. It is based on self-proclaimed righteousness backed by a deadly cocktail of incoherent pseudo revolutionary principles.

“How could you come to terms with the fact that in 2016 JM stabbed the people of Ghana in the back by selling out ECG by a certificate of urgency in parliament ratifying the concession agreement with MiDA?

“The entire leadership of the NDC needs to be wiped out. The December 2016 polls did part of the work in cleaning up the party, the rest should be done at an early Congress...”
