Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie aka Sir John who is a Former General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has questioned ex-president John Mahama's quest to become President for the second time.
Sir John who is currently the CEO of the Forestry Commission believes that former president John Mahama has nothing to offer Ghanaians and he did all he could within the 4 years he was in power.
He, therefore, rates his performance during his 4-year stay in office as President as abysmal.
“I say if John Mahama left any of his belongings at the Jubilee House after he was defeated in the 2016 election, he should tell me so I go and pick it up for him. He has no business going back to the Jubilee House. I don’t know why he’s worrying himself spending his resources and energy wanting to return to the Presidency. Ghanaians rejected him resoundingly and that remains.
He added: “Mahama, just like Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria once he was voted out of power, he’ll never return. If a dog no more likes a born, it doesn’t mean that a hen should come for it. What at all did he do right in power that he wants Ghanaians to give him the opportunity to return? Our woes as a country should be blamed on ex-President Mahama, he went for huge loans but a large amount of them was misappropriated and not used for the intended purposes.”
Former President Mahama was beaten in the 2016 elections resoundingly by then three-time lucky NPP Flagbearer Nana Akufo Addo who polled 5,716,026 as against Mr Mahama’s 4,713, 277 votes.
Mr Mahama has however been elected as the NDC Flagbearer to lead the party into the 2020 general elections.
