Presidency Not For Jokers; How Can An Elderly Speak Like This? - Charles Owusu Chides Mahama

Rev. Charles Owusu has advised the presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama, to be circumspect in his utterances, particularly with regard to his comments about his political competitor, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Vice President and flagbearer of the governing New Patriotic Party.

Mr. Mahama highlighting the economic challenges facing Ghanaians blasted the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia administration saying "Ghanaians are in dire straits and this is not the time for comedy".

He further said; "This is not for a concert party about passing the mythical steer to somebody. There is no space for stale falsehoods and gas lighting. It is unimaginable the narrative by some people that they have championed everything under this government, and at the same time are not responsible for anything under the same government because they were a self-styled driver's mate."

"It is simply not tenable and an insult to the intelligence of the electorates and the presidency cannot be presented to those who present themselves as the future when they have been at the epicentre of our disastrous present", Mr. Mahama added.

Charles Owusu, reacting to these remarks during Peace FM's "Kokrokoo" morning show, admonished the latter to engage in politics devoid of insults.

"When you, the elderly, denigrate yourselves like this, it gives the youth opportunity to also use derogatory comments against you", he replied Mahama.
