Mahama has no capacity, vision to lead Ghana again

A leading member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has restated that former President John Dramani Mahama has no capacity and vision to lead Ghana again.

The party stalwart, on the basis on anonymity urged Mr. Mahama to refrain from portraying himself as an exemplar of good leadership during his previous tenure as President.

The leading NDC member also openly questioned Mahama’s ability to effectively govern Ghana. Citing concerns about Mahama’s past performance, the NDC apparatchik advised him to acknowledge his perceived shortcomings rather than boasting about his leadership virtues.

The NDC member emphasized that it was essential for political leaders to demonstrate humility and self-awareness. Accusing Mahama of lacking these qualities, the party figure highlighted the need for genuine introspection instead of attempting to portray himself as a model leader.

Additionally, the NDC member condemned the former President’s ongoing criticism of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s government. He further called for an end to the “unnecessary attacks” on the current administration and emphasized the importance of fostering constructive dialogue for the betterment of the nation.

Unwarranted Mahama’s criticisms

Mr Mahama has criticized President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the behaviour exhibited by his appointees.  Addressing the graduating class of 2023 at the Academic City University College, he said that President Akufo-Addo seems to have disregarded his previous advice to his appointees about seeking opportunities in the private sector for personal enrichment.

Mr. Mahama expressed concern about what he said was a “significant deviation” of President Akufo-Addo’s appointees from the admonishment given by the president six years ago.

During his speech, the NDC flagbearer also cautioned graduates aspiring to enter politics for richness. He urged them not to use their leadership positions to pursue selfish ambitions but to prioritize serving the nation and its people.

Mr. Mahama recalled the President’s words from over six years ago when he emphasized that individuals seeking office should not do so for personal gain, but instead venture into the private sector if enrichment is their goal. He emphasized that the wisdom of these words seems to be forgotten in light of the current situation
