NPP’s Anthony A. Karbo has tagged President John Dramni Mahama as a “lair” for accusing Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of verbally ‘attacking’ him first on his campaign trail.

According to him - the NPP leader is “too stately” to engage in such an unhealthy politics with the President.

“President Mahama is lair. Nana Addo has never called him a thief anywhere. Nana Addo said he is not into politics to steal from state purse. He never mentioned anybody’s name, so why is the President crying?”

“ . . Nana Addo has never called President Mahama a thief. Not even for a single day, it has never happened. The President has lied, let's be bold to tell him that,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show 'Ghana Montie'.

Karbo’s comment comes after President John Dramani Mahama denied attacking Nana Akufo-Addo on his campaign trail adding that, Nana Addo and his team attacked him first.

According to the President, he has rather endured name-calling and insults from Nana Addo and the NPP over the years.

Mahama who was speaking to Paul Adom-Otchere also described the NPP’s flagbearer as a divisive leader and a dictator, who in his view cannot run the country.

Defending his comments on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghanaon Tuesday, Mr. Mahama said the criticisms against him are unfair, since the NPP and its flagbearer attacked him first.

For four years he [Akufo-Addo] has described me as incompetent, for four years he’s described me as visionless, for four years he’s described me as a thief. He says when I come to power I won’t steal your money what does that mean? It means I am stealing Ghanaians’ money,” he said.

Karbo however noted that – “The President must know when someone is telling him the fact and when someone is insulting him. Nana Addo will not engage in any dirty politics or politics of insults”.
