The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Mr. Sam Nartey George has reiterated his belief in a ‘resurgent and more focused’ John Mahama ahead of the 2020 general elections.
According to Sam George, the changing circumstances of life, as well as the shortcomings of the Akufo-Addo government, has led to the public yearning for Mahama’s comeback.
Speaking in an interview with Godfred Akoto Boafo on Citi TV’s Face to Face program, Sam George said Mahama has gone through the mill to become a refined politician.
“This Mahama is one who has been toughened by the vicissitude of life, by the shock of an electoral defeat, by the fact that we may have taken certain things for granted in the past. Now, he’s realised that every minute counts. People are seeing it. If you look at his communications, listen to his language, [and you] listen to the things he says… you will realise that he has become a more focused Mahama. He knows what he is about. He’s got an unfinished business, he feels partly responsible for the hardships Ghanaians are going through.”
Mr. Samuel Nartey George cited what he terms as the ‘increasing sense of insecurity in the country’ resulting in the kidnapped girls issue and the brutal assassination of the Marketing and Public Relations Manager of the Tema Port, Mrs. Josephine Asante, Tiger Eye PI investigative journalist Ahmed Suale, and Joseph Migal Jinjer, a senior staff of the Ghana Water Company Limited as reasons why this current Government has failed Ghanaians.
On the closed fishing season, he explained that although the idea behind the decision is a good one, Government’s mode of implementation.
He insisted that government lacks the expertise.
“The only way this ban will be effective is if it’s an ECOWAS decision, across the borders. That way the fish can replenish stock, they are disenfranchising Ghanaian local fishermen for Togolese fishermen… It is not a bad idea sensu stricto, however the implementation is the problem of this government. They claim they have the men [but] we’ve realized that they don’t even have boys.”
