A-Pro- NDC Group, Victory For Mahama 2016, has accused bigwigs of the party and those surrounding Former President John Dramani Mahama of being responsible for the bad blood between him and the Founder of the party, Jerry John Rawlings.

The group says the likes of Johnson Asiedu Nketiah and others failed to offer good counselling on how then President Mahama should have handled former President Rawlings, a situation which they said had contributed to the sour relationship between the two.

They observed that unlike his colleague,  the current President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has displayed sterling leadership by being able to manage former President John Agyekum Kufuor very well.

According to them, though similar frosty relationship existed then between President Kufuor and Nana Akufo-Addo during the heat of the 2007 flagbearship race, Nana Akufo-Addo has been able to carry President Kufuor along very well, resulting in the former always giving sweet and sound testimonies about the former.

“We all saw how dirty the relationship between Mr. Kufuor and Nana Addo was, especially during 2007/2008 political season, it was far bitter than that of Mr. Mahama and Jerry John Rawlings,  but today what do we see, they get along very well and Mr. Kufuor is contributing massively to the NPP electioneering campaign,  why can’t President Mahama do same?” the group queried.

They further pointed out that“even in the case of President Mahama, Mr. Rawlings fully endorsed his candidature as running mate. One would have expected that Mr. Mahama  would have humbled himself and display leadership by managing our Founder very well but we relegated him to the background thanks ill-advice from sycophants who have surrounded themselves around him.”

The Victory For Mahama 2016, whose similar warnings in the run up to the 2016 elections went unheeded resulting in the hefty defeat suffered by the party, has once cautioned the Former President to be wary of individuals who have surrounded him, adding “some of them don’t mean well and are only patronizing him for their personal interest”.
