Nana Addo has not got character to lead a nation- Quashigah

The propaganda secretary of the incumbent party and MP aspirant for Keta, Richard Quashigah believes what is supposed to be a ³gargantuan² rally by the NPP over the weekend did not live up to its bidding. Speaking with intended sarcasm, Richard Quashigah opines that ³if the NDC was to hold a Greater Accra Regional rally at Mantse Agbona, the whole place will be full to capacity².

³Even Odododiodio alone can marshal our supporters (NDC) to fill the place². Reacting to Nana Akuffo Addo¹s message to his supporters on the rally day that the NDC has no message for Ghanaians, Richard Quashigah said the NPP flag bearer has decided to put on ³double mask² so he wouldn¹t see what the President is doing. Quashigah believes Nana Addo on his nationwide listening tour did not see most developmental projects on-going in the country. The propaganda secretary challenged the opposition leader to come out and tell Ghanaians what success he (Nana Addo) chalked as a cabinet member and a Member of Parliament; adding that if Nana Addo had consulted ³men and women of wisdom² in the NPP, he would have been advised not to talk about personal records and compared himself with the sitting President, John Mills. In an interview with Xfm Big Bite host, Abena Asiedua Tenkorang, Richard Quashigah said Nana Addo¹s quick dismissal at the rally saying he is not a violent person is a cliché, however, he (Nana Addo) has refused to apologize to Ghanaians about his infamous ³All die be die² statement; saying international concerns about Nana Addo¹s character discredit him to lead this nation.

³We the NDC are concerned about his (Nana Addo) refusal to deny the allegation of his use of hard drugs, which is a conviction not just by Ghanaians, but the intentional community especially the Americans². ³Nana Addo should come out and clear the air about all this allegations mentioned against him².

³Ghanaians are looking for a leader who will be very clean, because we all know what narcotic drugs can do to a society² Richard Quashigah lamented. ³A man¹s gift will bring him before Kings, but what will maintain him there is his character, so no matter how talented you are, if you lose character, you will lose it all² Richard Quashigah stated.

On the issues of policies, the NDC¹s Propaganda Secretary dared the NPP to come out and tell Ghanaians what they (NPP) achieved in their first four years in power.
