Supporters of National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer hopefuls, Prof Joshua Alabi and Dr Spio Gabrah, are accusing former President John Mahama of stealing their campaign message.
Mr Mahama has been accused of stealing the promise to build decent regional and constituency offices for the party if elected as Presidential Candidates from the two contenders.
The social media supporters shared poster messages and videos of the two hopefuls to counter the declaration made by the former President yesterday to build party offices.
The banter follows two videos released Monday by the campaign teams of Joshua Alabi campaign and John Mama, in which both candidates promised to build party offices.
Prof Joshua Alabi in the video broadcast said: “You, not having funding sources to organise the party, you, not having constituency offices, you, not enjoying power as grassroots, you told me, I listened, took notes. And I assure you that I have the solutions.”
Within the same period, the campaign team of the former President released an audio-visual in which former President Mahama promised to construct party offices and provide platforms for the party youth to engage and learn from the experienced ones in the party.
The Joshua Alabi supporters quickly described the promise of the former President as an afterthought, following the wide public opinion that he seems not to be talking about the issues affecting the NDC party members but concentrating his efforts on attacking the NPP government.
Later in the evening, the John Mahama 2020 campaign team released a campaign poster in which the promise made earlier in the audio-visual is captured in black and white.
However, the Spio Gabrah campaign team fired back with their old poster in which it captured the construction of party offices as the number one item on their seven-point agenda.
Interestingly, the design and format used by the Spio Gabrah Campaign to lunch their 7-point agenda some weeks ago is the same as the one used by the Mahama Campaign for their poster yesterday.
The Spio Gabrah supporters on social media, therefore, slapped ‘COPIED’ on yesterday’s Mahama campaign artwork.
On NewsFile analysis program last Saturday, the former President was found to be over concentrating on the government of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) instead of addressing the NDC delegates whose vote he needs to emerge as the Presidential Candidate.
Editor in Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr. believes former President John Mahama has lost focus in his campaign to become the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) going into the 2020 election.
He said although Mahama stands a better chance of winning the flagbearer position, his victory will be jeopardised if he pays little attention to delegates and recommendations of the Kwesi Botchwey Report.
“He will win hands down. I will be shocked if he loses this thing. Their focus should be on delegates and perhaps the Kwesi Botchwey report because they know the content. Something went wrong with the party machinery in terms of election 2016; so that should be the focus. If not, his campaign will suffer premature ejaculation before he wins the primary,” Baako added.
