I don’t respond to aspirants; I respond to presidential candidates – Akufo-Addo
President Nana Akufo-Addo has said he will not respond to any of the main opposition National Democratic Congress’ flag bearer aspirants until they are duly elected as the party’s presidential candidate for the 2020 polls.
“I’m sure you have seen and heard some of the presidential aspirants of the leading opposition party taking jabs at my government in order, ostensibly, to prop up their campaign.”
“And whilst at it, they are desperately trying to get me to respond to them.”
“Let me state here and now, for the records that President Akufo-Addo will not respond to presidential aspirants.”
“He will respond to presidential candidates that have been duly elected by their parties.”
“Then, he will engage those who still think Ghanaians have short memories”, the president said on Saturday at the University of Development, Tamale.
Twelve aspirants are vying for the slot, including former president John Mahama
