President John Mahama has said “useless insults” from his critics will “not distract me.”
“…Stop the insults,” Mr Mahama told his critics at a rally in the Greater Accra Region’s Trade Fair Centre on Monday as part of his ‘changing lives, transforming Ghana’ tour.
“I have been the most insulted, and I think my government has been the most insulted in the history of this county,” he said at the event.
He added: “And every day when you listen to the radio, personal invective and insults are rained on my person, but like I said, those things are not going to distract me.
“I have a job to do. I was given a mandate by the people of Ghana and I’m not going to let those useless insults distract me from that mandate.
“But I’m not surprised,” he said, adding if members in the NPP could insult one of their own – former President John Kufuor the way they do – then, “as for me they’ll mash me in an earthenware.”
