Source: starrfmonline. com - Several chiefs in the Volta region are plotting with the NPP flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo to defeat President John Mahama in the upcoming elections, a youth group with allegiance to the ruling NDC has said.
According to the Social Democratic Forum, chiefs in the region have lined up with their interests and are demanding favors from the NPP leader, in the hope of him becoming President after the November 7, polls.

“The chiefs in the Volta Region have not helped our cause. Shamefully, they have only been too happy to line up to curry favour with Nana Addo while castigating President Mahama,” the group said in a statement.

They continued: “While the NPP propaganda machine goes into overdrive, the Volta NDC has been hamstrung by a farrago of petty squabbles, factionalism, tribalism and delusion. If we are not careful, these tribalistic hateful tendencies will be the death of us.

“If we [NDC members] are honest with ourselves, and as much as we would prefer to sweep the issue under the carpet, the heritage of our party [NDC] has long had a whiff of an anti-Northern undercurrent. Hatred for leaders of Northern extraction by Voltarians is nothing-new beginning with a son of the Volta overthrowing the first elected President of the country who hailed from the North, Dr. Hila Limann of blessed memory. It is little surprising that Voltarians are beginning to be the biggest critic of His Excellency John Dramani Mahama.

“If we are not careful, these tribalistic hateful tendencies will be the death of us.

“It would be naïve to think that the anti-northern hostility within our ranks has gone unnoticed by the inhabitants of the Northern regions, for our supporters in those regions are increasingly growing restive. Should President Mahama lose the forthcoming elections, his critics should forget about entertaining any ideas of a Voltarian coming to rescue what they would no doubt believe is the heart and soul of the party. We would be cast into the electoral wilderness. We are wiser and smarter and would not allow the fate of Dr. Limann to befall President John Mahama”.
