President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo has charged NPP communicators to ask Ghanaians make decisions based on the records on which of the leaders of the main political parties could be trusted with the affairs of the nation.
He said that comparing records with that of former President Mahama will do good than attacking the ethnicity or gender of their opponents as they campaign in the 2020 elections.
He said this during a zoom meeting with the NPP campaign communications advisory team.
President who is in isolation said the party has superior message of achievement to tell Ghanaians.
He said “insist on comparing my record with that of former President John Mahama as you campaign for my reelection in the upcoming polls”.
“This is the first time that the incumbent and his immediate predecessor are contesting, it has not happened before. Usually, it is the incumbent and somebody who is coming for the first time. We have to be very very insistent at looking at the records of the two leaders in the period of their governorship,” he said.
The Deputy Campaign Manager for the NPP’s campaign team Dr. Mustapha Abdul-Hamid in a statement said: “We therefore urge all who speak for, or purport to speak for the party to refrain from attacking political opponents. We specifically ask that no reference should ever be made to opponents’ ethnicity, religion or gender.
“We shall campaign on our record and win. Indeed, there is enough to speak about with regard to our record. We cannot beat our opponents in the politics of calumny. Let us therefore refrain”
