Saturday’s parliamentary primaries conducted across the country by the opposition National Democratic Congress saw incumbent MPs such as Joseph Yieleh Chireh (Wa West), Kwasi Ashiamah (Buem) and Ras Mubarak (Kumbungu) being denied a chance to represent the NDC in the parliamentary elections next year.

Just as he has begun scouting for a fitting aide and running mate who could be a “Bawumia Beater”, John Dramani Mahama has made the mistake of straying into the murky waters of controversy by blaming the recent banking and financial sector crisis on the governing NPP government.

The senior partner at the private legal firm Africa Legal Associates (ALA), Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, says the Akufo-Addo government’s decision to rescue the banks from collapse provides the NPP with a credible campaign message for the 2020 elections.
