The National Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Bernard Mornah has described as surprising the appointment of the party’s 2016 presidential candidate by the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Dr. Edward Nasigri Mahama has been appointed as Ambassador-at-Large.
Dr Mahama has stated that he did not need the consent of the party to accept the proposal.
But speaking on Morning Starr, Mr Mornah said the PNC is not enthused about the appointment of Dr Mahama.
The PNC’s Chairman doubted if indeed its the same Dr Mahama who has accepted to serve under the ruling New patriotic Party (NPP) saying he will be punished in due time.
“I’m not really myself. It weakens the ability to say that it is the [Dr.] Edward Mahama I know because the PNC as I said has not been consulted. We have no idea,” he said.
He questioned why Dr Mahama refused to consult the party he leads.
The Ambassador- at- large is assigned to special duties but not to any country.
