Former President John Dramani Mahama has promised that he is prepared with fresh ideas for the country in his second coming.

“I can assure you that the John Mahama administration from January 7, 2025, will be different. I promise visionary and selfless leadership and not the business-as-usual approach of the NPP,” Mahama’s statement posted on social media affirmed.
In a series of posts, Mahama took aim at President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, accusing them of incompetence in managing the economy and providing governance.
He contended that their leadership had inflicted significant damage on Ghana’s democratic reputation, which he described as reaching an unprecedented low in the history of the Fourth Republic.
He added that, the credibility of the President Akuffo Addo government is an all-time low, never experienced in the history of the Fourth Republic. December 07, 2024, election is crucial to restoring faith in our democracy.
Poor leadership must be held accountable for the corruption and deteriorating conditions,” Mahama asserted.
