Out of courtesy, former President Mahama, should have addressed the family of the late Dr. Kwabena Adjei with respect, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party has advised.
Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, questioned Mr. Mahama for gesturing with his left hand whilst his right hand stayed in his pocket when he addressed the family of his late Chairman.
The NPP Chairman explained that the “disrepectful” behaviour of Mr. Mahama led him to opposition and instead of working on his weakness, he has decided not to improve on it. According to Mr. Antwi-Boasiako popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, it was totally wrong in the Ghanaian culture for anybody to address the elderly with the left hand.
He stated that even if the former President had unresolved issues with his former Chairman, he shouldn’t have done what he did by “disrespecting” his family.
“We all know Mahama didn’t like his former Chairman and went as far as using state resources to support other candidates to unseat Dr. Adjei. He is gone and instead of showing some form of remorse, you go there and pocket and throw your left hand about like a 4 year old boy who has no training”.
Chairman Wontumi continued that : “By your gesture, you have made it clear that you don’t even have the proper training at home yet you want to lead us as a country again. What moral does he want to teach the young ones? If the video wasn’t available he would have sent his lying brigade to come out and say he didn’t use his left hand to address the family of the late Dr. Kwabena Adjei or say it was doctored”, he said.
Former President John Dramani Mahama has asked the party to work hard and win the 2020 elections to honour their fallen former National Chairman, Dr. Kwabena Adjei.
Eulogizing the former Chairman when he visited his home, he said Dr. Kwabena Adjei has done a lot for the party especially when during his tenure as Chairman he led the party to victory in the 2008 General Elections.
"So it will only be proper for us as a party to work hard to secure victory for the party come 2020," he said.
