NPP won’t change campaign message despite Mahama's endorsement-Akomea
President Mahama was on Thursday endorsed by the National Executive Council (NEC) of the NDC, following the demise of its original flagbearer and sitting president, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills on Tuesday 24th July, 2012 after he was taken ill at the 37 Military Hospital.
A former Director of Communications for the NDC, Seth Ofori Ohene said Joy FM’s News File on Saturday that president John Mahama has all it takes to beat the NPP’s Akufo-Addo, despite the fact that he has only five months to market himself.
Mr. Ofori Ohene said President Mahama had associated himself with late President Mills when he was his Vice President, and he (Mahama) is well known by the electorate making him better placed ahead of Nana Akufo-Addo.
However Nana Akomea, Director of Communications for the NPP said President Mahama was head of government economic management team when he was vice president but failed to achieve anything, leaving the country to survive on 80% imports into the economy.
“President Mahama cannot extricate himself from the failures of the NDC administration”, Nana Akomea noted.
The NPP however suspect President Mahama is likely to play to the media which poses threat to their candidate. But Nana Akomea said the NPP will do more media work on their flagbearer to enable him match President Mahama boot-for-boot.
