TESCON member assaulted for obstructing Mahama’s lecture

A second-year student of the Christian Service University in Kumasi has been allegedly assaulted by some supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The student, reportedly an organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON), is said to have engaged in disruptive behaviour during a lecture by former president John Mahama despite warnings from the event organisers.


Delivering a public lecture organised to mark the school’s 50th anniversary, Mr Mahama, who is seeking to win the 2024 polls on the ticket of the NDC, took a swipe at his NPP opponent, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.

“Ghanaians are in dire straits, and this is not the time for comedy. This is not the time for a concert party about passing a mythical steer to somebody,” he noted.

Mr Mahama’s remark, describing Dr Bawumia’s campaign as a ”concert party”, was met with mixed reactions.

While many applauded the jab, the victim, Nana Boakye, was unhappy and jeered at it.

Boakye’s jeers led to a violent response from the NDC supporters.

Narrating the incident, Nana Boakye said, “I also responded and said, ‘Mahama wo boa’ na wo b3 wi’ [Meaning Mahama, you’re lying, you will lose]. Later on, I saw a macho man who approached me and gave me a warning that I should be careful. So, I also asked him, ‘What have I done’? And the moment I asked him the question, he came directly and slapped me in front of the former President. So on our way out of the auditorium, when we got to the main entrance of the auditorium, there was another slap. I was not able to see anything, and I also saw one guy who held my hand backwards, and they started beating me in my stomach, my head and stuff like that.”

The second-year student of communications has his head wrapped in a bandage and a splint also supports his arm.
