The Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin has said that former President John Dramani Mahama is disrespecting recommendations contained in the Kwesi Botcwhey report that was to establish the cause of the National Democratic Party’s defeat in the 2016 elections.

The Nadowli-Kaleo lawmaker believes that Mahama’s involvement in the party’s unity walks attest to the fact that he is going against the recommendations of the 455-page Committee’s report.

“Definitely he is not conducting himself in conformity with the recommendations of the Kwesi Botchwey report and I will call on him to rather rethink what is happening. He should not behave as if it is the mob that is taking him along because he is a leader and must show leadership. What you see in the crowd does not mean their members of the NDC. There are a lot of teeming unemployed youth who are doing nothing and definitely join.

“If that is a show of strength actually. If that has been a show of strength, you saw what happened at the Accra Sports Stadium before the elections on 5th December 2017 that definitely would have been an assurance of win for the former President but it did not translate into votes”, he said.

Mr Bagbin believes that such unity walks are not needed at this time as the party must rather focus on its healing process and solve some of the concerns being raised by aggrieved persons.

“If you look at the change process management, from a ruling party to an opposition the first thing you have to do is to have establish a think-tank , to think through the state of affairs and why you lost and that is why the Council of Elders took up that responsibility”, he said.
