Addressing the press, spokesperson for the group Kojo Hamenya Keglo accused party officials of affluence and neglecting the grassroots supporters of the party.

According to him, Mahama appointed young boys as ministers of State to help him run the economy knowing very well that they had no experience in politics.

He however, described the appointments as the the worst mistake on the part of the former President.

"We want to know from JM [John Mahama] the wisdom in making Kofi Adams the [2016 campaign coordinator of the Mahama re-election bid]," he added.

"The former president, his wife, brothers and sisters and greedy friends created all kinds of  mushroom organs such us Celebrities for Mahama, Ladies for Mahama… setting aside party structures. How can you win elections with these?," he said.
