Former President John Dramani Mahama has incurred the wrath of some Fishermen in Tema after the fishermen claim the former President came there to deceive them.
This comes following a visit to Tema fishing enclave by John Dramani Mahama to donate items and interact with fisherfolks.
In what seem like a rejection of the former President, the fishermen claim the posturing of the Mr. Mahama as a long standing friend of the fishers has annoyed the some of them.
In a statement issued by Peter Nii Ashitey and E. A. Adjei, they accused the former President of misleading and throwing dust into their eyes.
“We will not sit down and allow him to use us to create a name for himself, when we know he has not really been a friend of ours, as he wants anybody who listen to think”
The statement added that, “Mr. Mahama cannot deceive us because we will never allow him to do that.”
Mr. Mahama in donating items to the fisher-folk is reported to have claimed that he cares about them and that his donation is a demonstration of that.
“Mr. Mahama claimed that he built a landing beach for us, we put it to him that he did not. Rather it was the late Former President John Evans Atta Mills who dredged the landing beach and also other fishing accessories.” the statement added.
The angry fishermen said they know the real friends and John Mahama is not one of them as according them, they did not seem any impact when he was in power as president.
“Any good things that we have enjoyed from the NDC has either come from former President Raling or late President John Evans Atta Mills, not from Mr. Mahama,” the statement said.
The leaders calling on Mr. Mahama to be cautious and stop the mischiefs with immediate effect said,
“We know that Professor Mills who started the Community Day Senior High school program, Mill started all new hospital projects that Mahama has been flaunting as well, including the Greater Accra Regional Hospital Project.”
