We Are Sorry: You Can’t Be A President This Time: John Mahama’s 2024 Ambition In Limbo

His name rings a bell. He came onto the throne as the youngest of all presidents who have governed the country Ghana post-independence.

He was first sworn in as president after the demise of Ghana’s first-ever president to have died whilst on the seat of the presidency, His Excellency professor John Fiifi Atta Mills.

John Dramani Mahama’s ascendancy to the throne was as dramatic as anything could ever be, going to work one morning as the Vice-President and returning home as a President of the Republic of Ghana the same day in June 2012.

He gave hope to the youth for the fact that once, a young person has been given the opportunity to rule, and maybe, this is a time for the young people to prove that they can also administer this country better than the old age people have done over the years.

Alas, many of his policies and programs targeted at developing this country rather led to the numerous challenges that this country witnessed during his time. There were rampant cases of corruption everywhere in the spheres of government; corruption of higher magnitude such that there were calls for deep investigation against many government officials.

One can name GYEEDA, the almighty RLG, and the Hope City amongst others. All of these projects failed to materialize. Anger grew, and people expressed serious outbursts against the once darling boy of many Ghanaians, John Dramani Mahama.

His government was characterized by mudslinging, pettiness, and bootlicking. This led to a lot of bickering within the circles of government and the NDC as a whole. There was gargantuan agitation against the government of the day led by John Dramani Mahama.

So in the lead-up to the 2016 elections, most of the polls that were conducted pointed out the fact that John Dramani Mahama will become Ghana’s first President to have lost after the first 4-year of ruling the country, and indeed it came to pass that in the 2016 elections.

Ghanaians chose the older Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo over the younger John Dramani Mahama.

It was a resounding voice and oneness from the people of Ghana to discard corruption and to welcome what was described as a future because the NPP promised jobs and most of all free Senior high school.

So to wake up to the news that Mahama says it is likely he will contest the 2024 elections is quite interesting. The headlines have been all over the news that he is likely to come back in 2024.

Will he ever make it despite everything that is happening? From a lot of things, it may be difficult for him.

President Mahama may think he has a chance because of the current outcry of Ghanaians on the Akufo Addo government. He should know that Ghanaians have a different reaction to his recent announcement.

It is shocking, but the reality; Ghanaians may never allow John Dramani Mahama to ever ascend the throne as President of Ghana again. We are sorry, Mr. Mahama, we can’t let this happen. You cannot have our support again.

Mahama’s Comment That You Can’t Criticise Till You Become President Was The Truth – Oboy Siki

Popular Kumawood actor, Oboy Siki has stated that President Akufo-Addo and his Vice, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia have failed to live up to expectations.

According to him, their incompetency has confirmed former President John Dramani Mahama’s comment that you cannot criticize a president till you get the opportunity to hold the office.

Ahead of the 2016 polls, Mr Mahama after being called ‘incompetents’ severally by Dr Bawumia had said that then-candidate Akufo-Addo and Bawumia cannot call him incompetent when they’ve not had a taste of the presidency before.

Oboy Siki believes that over five years of taking over power, President Akufo-Addo and Bawumia have failed to deliver as Ghanaians expected, and even fellow NPP members are disappointed in them.

‘Prez Akufo Addo and Bawumia Have A PhD In Lies And Deceit’ – NDC national organizer

Joshua Hamidu Akamba, national organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has claimed that President Akufo Addo and Bawumia are experts at deceiving Ghanaians.
According to Akamba, his description of Ghana’s first and second gentlemen as dishonest men is appropriate given the NPP government’s failure to deliver on its promises to the electorate.

His remarks follow the President’s refund of GH238,000 to the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.

The funds represent his salary increase as a result of the recommendations of the Presidential Emoluments Committee, which is chaired by Prof. Yaa Ntiamoa-Baidu.

Following the constant lies of Ghana’s incumbent president and his right-hand man, Bawumia, Joshua Akamba made the above-mentioned assertion in an interview on Accra-based Neat FM.

They are “specialists in deception and lies.”

“How long did he [President Nana Addo] take to refund that money? Was it [Money] not showing up in his account?” he inquired.

Kwame Apenteng, a member of the ruling New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) communications team, has questioned former President John Dramani Mahama’s sanity following his do or die comment.

 

Mr Mahama, he claims, has been in a bad mood since his defeat in the 2020 elections.

He stated on Happy FM that Mahama is not known to be a violent man, but his recent do-or-die remark suggests he’s had a mental breakdown.

He praised Kwabena Duffuor of the NDC for standing up to Mahama and criticizing his remark.

“I am grateful to Kwabena Duffour for doing that. I’m glad he stated that now is the time for peace and cooperation, not violence and division. Leadership is not about ego or even Election Day, but about putting Ghanaians’ health, prosperity, and safety first every day, all year. Our children are hungry, and our people are in need; instead of fighting, let us work together for the betterment of all.”
