Mahama is a walking inconsistency, says Fuseini Issah

Fuseini Issah said the former president's allegation of vote-buying regarding the One student, One tablet initiative is untenable

Fuseini Issah, a former Member of Parliament (MP) for Okaikwei North and a member of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) communications team, says John Dramani Mahama is full of inconsistencies. 

His comment comes after the former president’s recent allegations of vote-buying regarding the One student, One tablet initiative spearheaded by the government. 

Speaking on The Forum on Asaase 99.5 Saturday (13 April), Issah denounced Mahama’s criticism, citing inconsistencies in his past promises and actions.

“The former president is a walking inconsistency,” said Issah. 

“In the State of the Nation Address in 2016, the former president, now flagbearer of the NDC, did say to the nation that under his presidency, if Ghanaians gave him the opportunity—which of course Ghanaians did not give him given his record in the run-up to 2016—he was going to ensure that we were going to move to that level and then students in senior high schools were going to be provided with handheld devices like we’ve done today.”

“So for him to have turned back on his because he couldn’t, he got the opportunity to do it as Vice President; he got the opportunity to do it as president, [but] he was unable to do it. 

“In fact, in January 2024, when the vice-president and our flagbearer, His Excellency Dr Mahamudu Bawumia had mentioned it, [the] NDC was ridiculing the whole policy initiative and they were saying it was not possible because they couldn’t do it; they thought that the NPP also couldn’t do it.”

Issah also criticised the National Democratic Congress (NDC), for its tendency to reject policy initiatives proposed by the NPP instead of presenting viable alternatives. 

He lamented the NDC’s lack of proactive policymaking, characterising their campaign strategy as centred around undermining NPP initiatives rather than offering constructive proposals.

“That has been the character of the NDC; they hardly come out with policy initiatives. What they do in the elections and within campaigning is to poo-poo the policy initiatives that the New Patriotic Party brings and it’s very obvious.”
