President John Mahama has told his supporters he is aware of plans by the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to start a scathing smear campaign to tarnish his image ahead of Friday’s polls.
According to him, the party has contracted a printing house to make numerous copies of what he described as lies and defamatory information about himself and his party, the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) to distribute across the nation starting Monday in attempts to soil his reputation.
The president, who was addressing his supporters at Mallam Junction in Accra Saturday, said he and his followers will not engage in any such untoward behavior because they want peace.
He added that the NPP has resorted to these ‘desperate measures’ because they can sense defeat in the December 7 elections.
As for us, we want peace, we don’t insult, we know we will win so we don’t want to engage in violence or any untoward behavior, President Mahama told the teeming crowd, speaking in Twi.
He said: Those who know of their impending defeat want to spoil the game; we’ve heard they are going to begin printing their lies and spread them all over the country.
Let them continue, if they like they should print 25 million. It is God who enthrones a king, if he says you won’t be king, you will never be.
