Government Spokesperson on Governance and Security, Palgrave Boakye-Danquah has lambasted former President John Dramani Mahama for taking a swipe at some of the National Democratic Congress Members of Parliament for approving ministerial and judicial appointees of President Akufo-Addo.

According to him, utterances from the former President are undemocratic and a way to bully some of the minority MPs in Parliament.

He further expressed his disappointment in John Mahama saying his recent statements undermine Ghana’s democracy.

Palgrave Boakye-Danquah took to social media(Facebook) while reacting to a social media post the former President shared about minority caucus MPs voting to approve President Akufo-Addo’s nominees.

“I just read a post on the Facebook page of John Dramani Mahama (the presumptive leader) of NDC expressing his disappointment in some of the members of the NDC minority in Parliament of Ghana.”

“I am surprised that Mr. Mahama who is seeking to be the flagbearer of the biggest opposition party would take such a swipe at his members in parliament. This is a Democratic process and individuals who represent constituents in Ghana have their independence and wisdom to decide to participate in a democracy.”

“I stand to congratulate the NDC side in parliament for not being bullied into an array of instructions and for deciding for the good of democracy and for the common good to enable President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to continue to govern and lead this country Godward,” he started.

“I hope that Mr. Mahama believes in democracy and I hope that the title of his book is not a threat to our budding democracy in Ghana.”

“I wish Ghana the best and also our party New Patriotic Party (NPP: Development in Freedom) the best in wisdom ahead of the next elections.”
