    Mahama Is Rather More Wicked Towards Ghanaians - Moshake

    A former executive of the Tema East Constituency branch of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Stephen Ashitey Adjei, has responded to an accusation by his party’s flagbearer that president Akufo-Addo and his government are wicked, saying the one who is more wicked is Mr. John Mahama himself.

    In a social media commentary, Mr. Ashitey Adjei, who is popularly called Moshake, laughed off Mr. Mashama’s accusation, saying it is akin to the scenario where the pot calls the kettle black.

    “If we say we are rating our lineage of presidents in terms of wickedness, Mr. John Mahama will certainly take the top spot,” Moshake wrote in a reply.

    According to him, “no president has been more wicked to Ghanaian workers than John Mahama was for instance.”

    Recently, former president John Mahama accused the Akufo-Addo government of being insensitive, citing the government’s alleged abandonment of the Abetifi government hospital in the Eastern region.

    “I am very sad; the Abetifi Hospital that we were building that was about 70% complete, you will be sad if you see it today, you will cry,” Mr. Mahama told party loyalists after a 24-hour  economy walk in Kwahu recently.

    According to him, “the NPP government has been wicked to Ghanaians.”

    But reacting, Moshake said Mr. John Mahama’s comments are hypocritical.

    “First of all, you cannot use only one instance of non-performance to judge a government, like you are trying to do. Everybody knows that what you are saying is not true because this same government that you claim has been wicked to Ghanaians is the one implementing Free SHS. Secondly, if we are counting the wicked people who have been president before in the Fourth Republic, Mr. John Mahama is number one.”

    According to him, the Mahama government was the one which neglected the welfare issues of Ghanaian workers, such as the ex-workers of the Ghana Ports and Harbors Authority who have not been paid their severance benefits.

    “It was this same John Mahama who canceled Nursing and teacher trainee allowances, froze employment in the public sector and failed to implement any significant or worthwhile social intervention.”

    Even within the NDC, Moshake said, “Mr. John Mahama was so wicked that the party’s executives and youth were neglected throughout his presidency.”

    Rating the presidents of the fourth republic in terms of wickedness, Moshake placed John Mahama at number 1 and former president Kufuor at number 2. Atta Mills came up tops as the kindest, with former President Rawlings and Akufo-Addo, tying behind Mills.
