Ex-president John Mahama has jovially jabbed President Akufo Addo to get the famous Obinim Sticker so he can steer the affairs of the country properly.
Bishop Daniel Obinim, aka Angel Obinim made huge headlines when a video surfaced on the internet which shows members of his congregation giving ridiculous testimonies about the supernatural powers of stickers which has his images embossed on them.
The story has since turned an internet meme and according ex-president Mahama, the incumbent president also needs it to turn things around positively.
Mahama made the call when he was addressing members of the NDC in Wa in the Upper West region Saturday, Mr. Mahama said even though the NPP appears incompetent in government, the umbrella family will have to work hard to win the 2020 elections.
“You do not win an election on the weakness of your opponent. You win an election because the electorate have confidence in you. And so even though NPP is proving super incompetent, we cannot sit and relax and say because they are super incompetent we are going to win the next election. So we are going to work hard to win.
“I have been watching social media lately, and there’s something that has come, and I think it cures everything. It’s the Obinim sticker, the President and his government need an Obinim sticker. If it really works, then I think they need the sticker. So I am saying that we cannot depend on their incompetence, we need to work hard to gain the support of the electorate.”
Mr. Mahama said the ruling New Patriotic Party has failed and could be felt in the “unbearable hardship” being experienced by Ghanaians.
“People are feeling more hardship than ever today,” the immediate past president told the NDC gathering after the walk.
He added: “People said any idiot can borrow and that there is money in Ghana and that we can develop Ghana without borrowing but in one year and three months we have borrowed close to 30 billion Ghana cedis.”
