The National Democratic Congress Member of Parliament for Jirapa, Dr. Francis Dakura Bawaana has stated that he will shoot some former presidential staffers and aides of former President John Mahama if given the opportunity.
According to Dr. Bawaana, the disrespectful and arrogant posturing of some former aides of the ex-president including Stan Dogbe immensely contributed to the humiliating defeat of the NDC in last year’s elections.
In an interview with Starr News, Dr. Bawaana explained that Mr. Dogbe and some of his colleagues completely alienated Mr. Mahama from the structures and the grassroots of the party and treated party members with disdain.
“My brother some of those handlers if I get I will shoot them. I’m being very honest. When you go to that area they are not correct. The way some of them treated people, and I’m one of them, I’m one of those that felt really badly treated by them.
“And I don’t care, I can even call some names, they were too arrogant around the president. I mean…Stan Dogbe was one of them. You go to see the president, they will ask you to go through somebody like Stan Dogbe, and he will block you. For what reason? Do you know why the President asked the person to [come] see him? And there were instances where, his attitude to every party members was like it doesn’t matter who you are, who matters is the President.”
He continued: “They caused disenchantment between the president and people that could have been bringing in the right information from the ground. Party leaders had problems, where did this Stan Dogbe man come from? Where did he come from? Where did he come from?”
