    Mahama must stop the political immorality – Anyidoho

    Former Deputy General Secretary for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho has called on the former President of Ghana to stop what he describes as political immorality.

    He believes that John Dramani Mahama’s claims that government’s one student, one tablet initiative cannot be linked to vote buying because John Dramani Mahama had a similar initiative when he was president.

    “Incontrovertible evidence capturing JM’s Education Minister (now running mate), distributing laptops to schools. So, what is she saying about her boss’s talk that laptops are being given to buy votes? Did Naana give hers to buy votes? Immorality in politics must stop⚔️ in NDC,” he said.

    Former president John Dramani Mahama has condemned government’s decision to distribute tablets to students in Senior High Schools across the country ahead of the 2024 elections.

    He argues that it is a move by the government to lure first time voters to vote for them.

    “You bring a new curriculum, the children have no textbooks in basic school for the last four years and you think that giving pre-tertiary students tablets is more important. Of course, everybody knows the political expediency.

    “The pre-tertiary students are going to register in May because some of them will be turning 18 years and above, some are 18 already and they are going to be the ones voting. So this is a gift to entice them to vote for the current government.

    “Otherwise, if you are using GH¢1.3 billion to give pre-tertiary students laptops, our priority would have been different. Other things are begging for funding in our educational system than those laptops. But it is a bribe for them to vote for this government.”
