Addressing the strength of the NDC in 2020, Mr. Asante likened Mahama to an Egyptian pharaoh whose political life is dead nonetheless still drag other members of his party to an untimely political death.
“I see this pharaoh attitude that is emerging under the NDC. When you look at the ancient Egyptians, they have a way of running their system of governance that when the pharaoh passes on, they literally sacrifice all the maids and household individuals who were helping the man when he was alive and make sure the person go to the grave with the pharaoh.” He said.
”That’s a sign that politically he is dead. He is bent on making sure that his household, the NDC itself and the team is sacrificed with him in his political death.” He added.
