Mahama and Gabby Otchere-Darko trade jibes on Twitter over campaign poster

Former president John Mahama has exchanged jibes on Twitter with one of president Akufo-Addo’s closest confidantes, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko over a campaign poster.

Gabby was first to cast an acerbic stone over the poster which appeared to suggest that a new government under Mahama will rescue Ghana’s democracy from such things as an “elephant size government” and the financial, health, agric and health sectors.

In commenting on the poster, Gabby questioned the competence of the John Mahama campaign, and, appeared to raise doubts about the competence of the candidate himself, raising the spectre of a possible repeat of one of the campaign slogans that was used in the 2016 election cycle: “incompetent Mahama”.

“Clearly, incompetence can be both chronic & incurable, transcending electoral cycles,” he wrote, suggesting that the incompetence, which in the eyes of the ruling party, afflicted Mahama’s government between 2012 and 2016, has not yet been cured.

“How can any serious alternative government promise to rescue democracy from the financial sector, health sector and agric sector?” What will be left?” Gabby asked. “Whoever is leading the NDC campaign publicity doesn’t get it.”

It didn’t take long for John Mahama (or his campaign team) to hit back, attaching a screenshot of Gabby’s remarks to the former President’s response on Twitter.

“Clearly some psychosis can lead to unrestrained obsession,” Mr. Mahama wrote. “The ad referred to is not official & it’s obvious to all. Besides, I thought our ‘PM’ would be busy with weightier matters of state than an amateur ad put out by an overly enthusiastic supporter of our party.”

The ‘PM’ reference in Mahama’s response is in relation to a popular belief in political circles that Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko is such a powerful figure in the Akufo-Addo government that his functions in the administration could be likened to that of a Prime Minister.
