The Afigya Sekyere East Communications Officer and the Ashanti Regional Communication Team Member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sirr Abdullah has charged members and supporters of the party to desist from attacking Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and the people who falsely, out of hatred and deliberately criticized former President John Dramani Mahama.
According to Sirr Abdullah, NDC members and supporters should focus on the reorganization from the Branch to the National level which will help the party to secure power in 2024.
Speaking in an interview with Pure Fm’s Osei Kwadwo, Sirr Abdullah explained that “Apart from our target, which is to win and rescue Ghanaians from the untold hardships visited Ghanaians by this President Akuffo Addo’s administration, everything else must be treated as destruction”.
“Over the few months, I have seen videos, audios, and write-ups from some media personnel and persons from Civil Society Organizations, confessing how they collectively decided to destroy the reputation of Mahama and his Administration. Some have confessed how they deliberately hated John Mahama for no reason and saw nothing positive about his government” Sirr Abdullah said.
Sirr Abdullah explained that “Out of hatred or whatever, some media persons sat on the radio and insulted him including calling him Armed Robber. They deliberately allowed callers to call into the programs and pour open insults and read text messages containing insults directly directed at Mahama live on radio”.
“They have admitted they were unfair to Mahama; some have even swallowed their pride and have openly apologized to Mahama. The damage they did to John Dramani Mahama’s reputation and government cost Ghanaians not Mahama a lot. But I believe the man full of humility (John Mahama) has forgiven them and says he will allow posterity to always be his judge”.
“I urge all comrades to desist from attacking such people. Let us allow them to confess one after the other. The damage and mess they created must be fixed and cleaned by them. They will wash Mahama with ‘Zamzam’ ( Holy Water from Mecca) with sweet-scented soap ever used and clad him with the most expensive ‘Fuugu’ and present him to Ghanaians as the ‘Messiah” he added.
