Former President and flagbearer for the NDC John Mahama has advised Vice President Dr Bawumia to be civil in his political comments.
Responding to question during his live Facebook session, John Mahama said politicians must be civil in the way they address each other.
He also added that the incompetent tag given to him by Dr Bawumia does not really bother him and he will continue to be courteous in his comments.
“We must always be responsible in our discourse and we must be civil in the way we address each other so it does not matter is uncivil to me or who abuses me or who throws insult at me and I know he calls me the incompetent one but it does not really bother me I think I will continue to respond as courteously as possible, politics need not be dirty..”
Addressing issues of security, John Mahama said the current NPP government have chosen politics over merit causing the upsurge in criminal activities in the country.
“One of the thing that I did when I was president is to put the right people at the right places if you put politics above merit in the security sector you will have the results that we are had various specialised units that dealt with the issues of crime and security.”
