Former President John Mahama has said that President Nana Akufo Addo can't sleep due to the numerous challenges facing the country.
John Mahama made this statement when he addressed the congregation members at the Trinity Parish of the Madina Evangelical Presbyterian Church to mark their 50th-anniversary celebration.
He noted that the challenges facing the leadership of the parish were nothing compared to the ones facing President Akufo-Addo.
“Leadership is not an easy thing, we must always pray for leaders. I’ve been there before and I know what it is like, there are indeed sleepless nights. And I’m sure my successor is having sleepless nights as well.
He further stated even if you are a leader of a small parish like this, the kinds of problems I’m sure Reverend Osiakwa has to handle are just a microcosm of the kinds of problems the President might be facing by now
Mr Mahama also admonished the congregation to display the highest form of respect to their leadership, whether they like the person or not.
“We must also respect our leaders. Indeed, if you do not even like the personality in the position or in the office, you must show respect to the office, because you don’t know when you or your relative will be there"
He spoke against the negative attitude of denigrating leaders since there was the possibility that they could receive similar treatment should they find themselves in leadership positions.
