The Executive Director of Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA), Mensah Thompson has described the recent address by Former President John Dramani Mahama as boring and has no inspiring elements.
According to Mr. Mensah, he wonders if Mahama’s last night address to the nation, particularly, to the supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) was meant to motivate the grassroots of the party.
In his opinion, John Mahama should have addressed the nation by pouring out his grievances without having to use a teleprompter which was aiding him to read.
In a social media post that GhanaVanguard.com sighted, Mensah Thompson stated; “Another boring uninspiring address from John Mahama, who wrote this speech and what was it intended to achieve? Motivate the base???”
Mensah added; “Couldn’t the Flagbearer had poured his heart out extempo without the fixation the teleprompter that almost gave him away?”
The vibrant ASEPA leader further continued, claiming that NDC supporters who were expecting a ‘ground-shaking’ address from John Mahama were disappointed as they got no motivations from the address last night.
“…the support base that needed this energizing the most towards the election petition got almost nothing from the speech,” he claims.
Former President John Dramani Mahama, yesterday, December 30, 2020 filed a petition through his lawyers at the Supreme Court to challenge the presidential election results announced by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs. Jean Adukwei Mensah.
He addressed the nation hours after the petition was filed on his behalf by his lawyers. In his address, Mahama pointed out few reasons why he has decided to go to court to challenge the outcome of the presidential election which saw the incumbent, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo being declared as the winner.
