Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwart, has chided the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, John Mahama, for his seeming lack of vision and plan to lead the country despite his experiences within the corridors of power as one-time Vice-President and President, ABC News can report.

Despite serving as Vice President and later President and now being in opposition for three years, Gabby Otchere-Darko believes the Former President has not proven himself worthy of managing the affairs of the country as he has failed to offer alternatives to policies or develop well-thought-through initiatives of his own which he will propagate to voters and roll out in the unlikely event he is elected.

In a Facebook post sighted by ABC News, the leading member of the governing party contended that it is obvious the former president has no clear vision for Ghana and is bereft of ideas, despite his time in power, going into the 2020 general elections.

“The next general elections are in December 2020. If, after 8yrs as Vice President and President, with 3yrs extra in opposition to reflect and think ahead, you still don’t have a vision of your own then I am afraid this political glaucoma of a leadership is not for Vision 2020,” the post by the NPP member read.

Gabby Otchere-Darko’s post follows the plea by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to the public, agencies, Civil Society Organisations and other bodies to submit ideas and suggestions to be considered in the drafting of their party’s manifesto ahead of the 2020 polls.

The NDC deems this move necessary as it claims to be developing a “Peoples Manifesto” that speaks to the direct needs and concerns of the citizenry.

This approach by the party has been met with a lot of criticisms with sections of the public, from whom they have requested the ideas, suggesting the party is “ideologically bankrupt” and lacks a structured plan of their own to develop the country.

The party has refuted the claims and described them as baseless and mischievous.
