NDC Groups Clash At Press Center Over John Mahama

A bloody clash nearly ensued between two youth groups of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), at the Ghana International Press Centre on Monday.

A press conference scheduled by a group calling itself, “Action Movement 2020”  was disrupted by another faction, “Victory for NDC”, bringing the programme to an abrupt end.

Action Movement is demanding a rejection of former President John Dramani Mahama if he contests the 2020 flagbearership race of the largest opposition party.

The group insists, John Mahama is solely responsible for the party’s abysmal performance at the 2016 polls.

According to group, some utterances of the former president were not appealing to the electorates as compared to his main rival, Nana Akufo Addo who focused on pertinent issues with direct effect on the electorate.

They claim those pronouncements from the former president caused the defeat.

However,  in the course of the press conference, the other faction besieged the grounds, bringing the program to a halt. They were of the view  that the attempt to blame President Mahama for the 2016 election defeat was misinforming.

“We came here to stop them because we don’t want them to insult our incoming flagbearer who is John Mahama,” an angry pro-Mahama supporter told our reporter.

They argued that all NDC executives  should accept blame for the December 7 defeat .

They claim their interest is to  protect  the hard won reputation  of the former president and the NDC, warning that any attempt to destroy  his (Mahama’s) name will be crushed.
