STATEMENT: John Mahama 2012 Campaign Team Officially Replies NPP

The John Mahama 2012 Campaign has noted the content of a press conference addressed by a deputy communications director of the opposition NPP.

We are of the view that it is important to raise the level of political discourse to a higher level of decency and debate to focus on the issues of most concern to Ghanaians and not flimsy, baseless personal attacks.

We note with regret that our opponents in the NPP are obviously not capable of conducting their campaign within that frame. This is unfortunate, but no doubt would give the people of Ghana an indication of the pathetic and desperate nature of their campaign for election 2012.

The content of the NPP press conference is not worth public time, as it brings home no issues worthy of consideration by the good people of Ghana. It was simply an attempt to malign His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama.

Did President Mahama give STX $264 million? No.

Did President Mahama terminate the contracts between the Government of Ghana and CP, Rockshell and Alfred Woyome? No.

Beyond throwing allegations of Corruption at appointees of this Government did the text of their press conference have any substance? No.

The respective Ministries, Departments and Agencies will respond in detail to all the allegations of corruption involving projects of those Ministries, and the people of Ghana will be reminded of the details of each transaction and the process it went through.

We will also remind Ghanaians of transactions that were concluded during the NPP administration, and properties that were acquired by NPP functionaries, or sold by the NPP Government to their business cronies so that voters are reminded of the facts surrounding the transactions the previous administration was involved with.

The NDC Government of the Late President John Atta Mills, and now President Mahama has focused on bringing development across the country.

The people of Ghana heard these affirmations in the tributes that were paid to the Late President Mills, and these have reflected in the public endorsement of President Mahama as he has travelled the length and breadth of this country.

This is what the NPP would like the people of Ghana to forget hence the vicious personal attack on John Dramani Mahama.

Unlike the speech writers of the NPP we believe the people of Ghana are more discerning, and now that they have made the debate on character central to their campaign, we believe that the people of Ghana will make the assessment of the character of the contenders for the Presidency, and choose the better man to advance the agenda of creating a peaceful, prosperous country where every citizen irrespective of where they come from, or their religious and political affiliation will have the opportunity to succeed.

We have taken note of the fact that the NPP and Nana Akufo- Addo have proceeded to launch a viral attack on facebook and other such social media platforms in the vain hope perhaps, that once allegations and slander are planted online they will at some point be repeated in the print and electronic media as news. Desperate people try desperate tactics, and as the good book says, "by their fruits you shall know them".

President Mahama assures the people of Ghana that he will continue to work in their best interest. The NDC campaign for the 2012 elections will continue to focus on the most important social, economic and governance issues affecting our country and will explain to the people of Ghana in this campaign the areas on which John Dramani Mahama and his Government will focus their attention if given the mandate of the people of this country, in order to work for you and continue to advance the better Ghana agenda.
