Ghanaians are suffering - COP Mensah reacts to Mahama’s honeymoon request

In a fiery response to former President Mahama's request for a post-election honeymoon, New Patriotic Party Parliamentary aspirant, COP Alex Mensah, emphasized the prevailing suffering of Ghanaians, declaring that there is no room for such luxuries. “How can we give you honeymoon? We see people suffering. People are suffering in this country, and you want us to give you honeymoon; it means he has no policy,” stated the controversial retired policeman in an exclusive interview with Joy News. This comes after the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, Mahama, expressed his desire for some breathing space to address the country's issues if he emerges victorious in the upcoming December polls.
