Be Decorous As A Stateman- David Prah To Mahama

Mr David Prah, Eastern Regional Communications Director of the New Patriot Party (NPP), has slammed the former president and flagbearerer of the biggest opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, of being too ethnocentric in his political dispensation.

He explained that, the former president recently mentioned that, Akyem people are “Sakawa” meaning fraudsters a statement that has not gone down well with the entire Eastern Region settlers.

And NPP in the Eastern Region will be surprise to see NDC and their flag bearer in the Akyem enclave to campaign.

Speaking to the media in koforidua, Mr David Prah said again that, as a former president, flagbearerer and a statesman for that matter, he’s not expected to do ethnocentric politics.

He should speak maturedly.

And For such a personality to say “Akyem Sakawa” is very disturbing to the people of Eastern Region and Akyems, how can you come and campaign ahead of the general elections on the soil of those you claim are  fraudsters? We the Eastern Regional wing of the NPP are highly disappointed in his excellency John Dramani Mahama for his ethnic bigotry. We are waiting patiently for him to come to the Eastern Region for his campaign.” Mr Prah.

This comes after a post by the Bolgatanga Central MP, Isaac Adongo, describes some elements from the New Patriotic Party as “Akyem Sakawa Boys” in relation to the controversial Agyapa Royalties deal.

The article was shared on the Facebook page of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Mahama.
