Nana Akufo-Addo has responded to President John Mahama's criticism of his "try me too" campaign message Saturday afternoon.

The president told voters in Bimbila in the Northern region that it will be a "dangerous experiment" to try the NPP leader, adding that Ghana is not at the stage where we are experimenting leadership and so you can’t come and beg that we should try you."

However, speaking at a rally where he earlier accused the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) of collapsing the National Health Insurance Scheme and promising to revive it when he wins the election, Nana Addo turned up the venom on his NDC rival.

So what is the purpose of the continuity? Are we going to continue the disaster?, Akufo-Addo said of Mahama. "Is that what we want to do? We want to get rid of the disaster, and bring in a man with new ideas and a fresh direction for our nation.”

The presidential nominee of the NPP added that experience of president Mahama at the presidency has be a "disastrous experience for our country.”

Akufo-Addo also appealed to voters to have confidence in him.

He assured that “I am not coming to fill my pockets with your money. I am coming to work to straighten up our country and bring it back to prosperity again.”
