Nduom never endorsed Mahama


The standard bearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP,) Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, has never and will never endorse John Dramani Mahama as the one Ghanaians must vote for as the president of the Republic of Ghana.
This is the kind of shameful propaganda pieces put out by appendages of John Mahama and other surrogates of the NDC to sway the minds of many PPP supporters in especially the Volta and some parts of the Northern Regions.
Is it not a shame that the NDC that so often boasts that the Volta Region is its world bank should go on such lies to save itself from losing grip of that region, which by all indications is about to show the NDC that it (the party) can no longer be used as a mere pawn in the political chess game of the NDC.
The PPP’s information on the wicked lies by the NDC has been corroborated by our Parliamentary Candidates, party members and supporters in those regions.
Indeed, it was the same act of chicanery that was used by the shameless and faceless propaganda apologists of the NDC, particularly in the Central Region during the 2008 elections that Dr. Nduom had thrown his weight behind his “elder brother,” then candidate John Mills of the NDC.
If the NDC believes it can win tomorrow’s election in the first round, then why should they resort to such inferior tactics? And what happened to their Better Ghana Agenda which they believe has catapulted Ghana deeper into the bracket of a Middle-Income Country?
By such misdeeds the NDC has demonstrated to Ghanaians that it is not a party deserving of the trust of the people of Ghana. If their much-touted achievements are real, then we believe the NDC will not have gone on such cheap and shameful tangent, since the works of their hands will speak and ensure a one-touch victory for them, let alone campaigning.
Clearly, such desperate act only marks out the NDC as a dying party at the throes of humiliating defeat, hence their flailing efforts at resorting to pure lies, propaganda and inferior tactics to save itself.
We wish to state in unequivocal terms that Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom and the PPP are running a vibrant, independent and credible political party with the sole aim of winning power to save Ghanaians from the hands of the mediocre performers who have sunk the country into a development abyss over the last 20 years.
