Mahama is a ‘magician’ – Former NDC women organizer

Former National Women Organizer and leading member of the campaign team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Madam Faustina Nelson says President Mahama has undertaken wondrous developmental projects in his first term in office that only ‘magicians’ can match.

According to her, John Mahama has embarked on a quantum of projects across the country that no head of state has ever done.

She revealed that the first man in the country taps his developmental ideas from political conferences when he travels abroad on behalf of the country.

“I am very shocked. I believe John Mahama is a magician. He sees developmental goals as a covenant. The roads and infrastructures I have seen can be compared to ones in the developed countries. If he has been able to do all these developmental infrastructures in just three and half years then he deserves another term.

“To abort the projects means he has deviated from the NDC’s goal with regards to our anthem. John D. Mahama tries to build whatever he has seen when he attends political conferences abroad. This is what magicians do” she said during an interview on Accra based Okay Fm.

The leading member of the campaign team debunked claims that the NDC government gave bribes to the Chiefs in the Volta Region before they endorsed the Mahama candidature.

“If anyone says the NDC gave funds to chiefs before endorsement of the party then it means they are cunningly disrespecting the chief. They are insulting the intelligence of the chief. Practicing such politics isn’t right. They are completely defaming him. If anyone says we gave chiefs V8 vehicles before endorsement then what do we give to those who are ordinary unlike the Chiefs? An airplane?”

She likened the contest for the presidency to a game of football and as such the NDC government leaves everything in the hands of the referee till the final whistle is blown for their massive victory.

“In this game of football politics, we leave everything to the Referee (EC).

When the game is over and the referee sounds the closing whistle, that’s where Ghana will realize we the NDC, are great political players determined to move the nation forward in terms of development.”
