    Mahama is not coming to power today, he’s not coming to power tomorrow – Akufo-Addo

    President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged Ghanaians not to vote for the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), former President John Dramani Mahama, in the upcoming December 7, 2024 elections.

    Speaking at the unveiling of the vice-presidential candidate of his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, in Kumasi, on Tuesday, July 9, 2024, Akufo-Addo stated that Mahama is the only president in the 4th Republic who has been ousted from the government after only one term in office.

    He asserted that Mahama was removed from the government because of his poor performance and should never be allowed back into office again.

    “Let us remember one thing, the person we are contesting against – the leader of the NDC – since the inception of the fourth republic (1992), General Rawlings was president for two successive terms; John Agyekum Kufuor, two successive terms; Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, two successive terms; he (Mahama) is the only person who got one term.

    “And he is the same person saying that we should make him president again,” the president said in Twi.

    He added, “Someone we removed from power without any effort now wants us to bring him back to the presidency; it is not going to happen. We are not taking him back today, we are not taking him back tomorrow.”

    Akufo-Addo also remarked that the NDC flagbearer speaks as if he has never been in power.

    He commented that Mahama is the same person who was ousted from power and he has nothing new to offer.

    “He speaks as if we don’t know him. Does he have anything new to offer? We have seen the works of his hands before and that is why we removed him. He is not good enough for the job.”
