Opposition can only unseat Mahama with realistic manifesto – Dele Momodu

The Nigerian media mogul, Chief Dele Momodu has advised opposition parties who want to unseat President Mahama to focus on convincing Ghanaians with a realistic manifesto, instead of trumpeting promises.

Chief Momodu who has received backlash from opposition parties for promoting President John Mahama’s administration has refused to back down on his conviction that Mahama is the best choice for Ghana - as the country head to the election in few months.

Advising the opposition party on how best to unseat Mahama, he said “What I expect the opposition to tell Ghanaians is that Mahama is not doing enough; we can do better, and show Ghanaians how they intend to do it because promises are very easy to make.”

Comparing opposition campaign strategy to that of Donald Trump strategy, he said “look at Donald Trump, he promised to drive out ISIS, but when he was asked how he’s going to go about it, he can’t tell; that’s what I think is wrong with politicians competing with Mahama’s re-election.”

He however advise the political parties desperate to dislodge President to concentrate their energy on providing a realistic manifesto: “the energy people waste attacking Mahama, they should please consolidate that energy and concentrate it on showing specifically how they are much better; their track record, what they want to do in the future because it’s not always easy,” he said.
