Bishop Stephen Richard Bosomtwe Ayensu, a former Methodist Bishop for Obuasi has ramped up his attack on former President John Dramani Mahama.
He said he doesn’t have fond memories of Mahama as President and he only knows him as an ineffective leader.
Speaking on the legacy of the former President on NEAT FM’s morning show, ‘Ghana Montie’, Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu said Mahama’s tenure was terrible and he cannot remember any good policy from the erstwhile government.
“I only remember him [John Mahama] as a dead goat. This is someone who wants to be President again so he can review the Free SHS policy. Are we serious as a nation?” Bishop Bosomtwe Ayensu quizzed.
He said, Mahama seeking another term in office will offer nothing to change the status of Ghanaians.
The man of God also questioned Mahama’s decision to repeal the Electronic Transfer Levy (E-Levy) law, when he assumes office as president of the republic in 2025.
Bishop Ayensu described the pronouncement by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) leader as backward and an attempt to sway voters.
“A leading opposition party says this government has been borrowing to fund projects. But it [the government] has been strategic this time to introduce this homegrown policy to build our nation. So if someone says he will repeal this law when he wins power then such a person will not even win power to abort it.
“If the E-levy is a good policy why will you abolish it? Such people can’t even do it because history keeps guiding us. Such comments usually end up as a political talk and deceit,” he added.
