Stop taking alcohol before you speak - NPP Communications Director to Mahama

The Ashanti Regional Communications Director of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Kwasi Kyei has advised former President Mahama to stop taking alcohol before he speaks.

"Ex-president Mahama took alcohol before he made comments that President Akufo-Addo needs Obinim sticker to perform," Mr. Kwasi Kyei on Kumasi-based Bohye FM's Morning Show said.

He (Kwasi Kyei) was asked to retract by the host and not to drag that line, but refused, insisting he knew what he was talking about and that the former President spoke under the influence.

Former President John Dramani Mahama in Upper East region over the weekend said the President, Nana Addo Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his government should go for some of Bishop Obinim’s sticker to heal their ‘super incompetence’.

“I have been watching social media lately and there’s something that has come, and I think it cures everything. It’s the Obinim sticker, the President and his government need an Obinim sticker. If it really works, then I think they need the sticker. So I am saying that we cannot depend on their incompetence, we need to work hard to gain the support of the electorate,” Mahama said.

But Kwasi Kyei has fired the former President. “He (Mahama) has been drinking”, he said.

“He has to stop the alcohol he is taking…. No one who is clear-headed will say what he said”, he added.

“So if you look at how the country was destroyed and how far we (NPP) are bringing it back, you say someone should buy sticker. Then for every one sticker he buys, you will buy three”, he said.

The Obinim sticker, which is said to work wonders, the former President said must be given to the sitting President and his government so they can perform better.

Apparently, church members of Obinim gave testimonies at his church regarding the wonderful things the sticker had done for them ever since they bought it. And that has sparked the Obinim Sticker Challenge on Social Media in mockery, leading to Mr Mahama, who was addressing NDC members in Wa in the Upper West Region, saying the sticker is needed for Akufo-Addo and his team to perform.
