Show ‘maturity’ in your campaign – Paul Adom-Otchere tackles Boakye Agyarko

Host of Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV, Paul Adom-Otchere has chastised Former Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko over what he describes as “bad campaign strategy” towards his aim to become the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and to eventually become president of Ghana.

This comes after Boakye Agyarko in an interview said he will turn down any appointment to serve in the Akufo-Addo government, adding that, he was no longer on talking terms with him and has lost trust for the President.

“I am pursuing my own presidential ambition, for which a lot of people kicked against right from the beginning. I will not abandon it to go and do any other thing. I am focused on what I have to do for myself and my nation. That is my focus. If you serve with all your strength and the person doesn’t appreciate it, you move on. If I cannot give something a hundred percent, I will not do it. I’m I not deserving of being the flagbearer of the NPP?” the 66-year-old said on Asempa FM earlier.

Reacting to this, Paul Adom-Otchere said, it was time that politicians and the media elevated political discussions and make them issues based, stressing that, there is the need to focus on issues stressing the Ghanaian electorate.

“Boakye said that ‘I don’t trust Akufo-Addo,’ but that is a no point. What is the point? You can decide not to trust him. You have had a 47-year relation with him…if you say you don’t trust him, that is okay. But is that the reason why we should vote for you as the NPP presidential candidate? That really shouldn’t come into the question. Unless one has an agenda to damage and that is where the problem is coming from,” he stressed.

“Boakye Agyarko says ‘Akufo-Addo something something…’ that is not what we want to hear. What we want to hear is what Boakye Agyarko is able to do for the NPP and if he is elected as a President of Ghana if he is elected. If you tell us you don’t trust Akufo-Addo anymore, Akufo-Addo is not on the ballot for 2024.

“The Ghanaian people voted for him… it is his obligation that by the end of his tenure, Ghanaians get their time’s worth. I believe that will happen. You come on radio and say you don’t trust Akufo-Addo, so what should we do? That is why people should vote for him? They should vote for Akufo-Addo because he says he doesn’t trust Akufo-Addo?” he quizzed.
