Mahama Pens Down Letter Ahead Of NDC Manifesto Launch, Promises To Turn Ghana Into Advanced Country

Published

on


Former president and flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has pen down some of the things Ghanaians are to expect in the party’s manifesto launch which would be happening today.

According to the flagbearer, the NDC manifesto will addresses the question most Ghanaians ask about Mahama still wanting to contest after heading high offices such as; president and vice president.

The statement also added that, it is NDC’s sacred mission to turn Ghana into an advanced nation as soon as possible.


Below is the statement from the former President

My brothers and sisters,

On Monday, we will launch our manifesto for 2020.
Let me take this opportunity to offer some personal reflections on the political substance of this manifesto.

You offered me the humbling chance to serve you from the highest offices in Ghana – first as Vice-President, for four years, and then as President for another four years. For this, I will forever be grateful, and I will fight for your wellbeing, for your hopes and for your rights with all my strength for the rest of my life.

But since I have already been there, why run again? I know many of you ask this question – sometimes openly, sometimes in silence. Why run again? It is a fair question, and it deserves a fair, personal answer.

In a sense, our manifesto will provide the answer, but it will be a collective answer, coming from all the fabulous NDC members and supporters, men and women, who participated in its formulation.

In all honesty, I didn’t take the decision to run for a second term as President neither easily, nor quickly. I didn’t jump into it. I did it out of a sense of urgency, after I began to contemplate more and more thoroughly about our vulnerabilities as a nation.

No country can aspire to become developed; no society can be truly resilient in the face of crisis and adversity without a solid economic and social infrastructure.

To create sustainable and ever-growing prosperity – something we all deserve – it requires building a robust social and economic infrastructure, one that supports creativity, innovation and the production of high value-added products and services.

This is precisely why, during my Presidency, I took aggressive steps to develop and consolidate our healthcare infrastructure, our educational infrastructure, our transport infrastructure and our digital infrastructure. This is the only way to build a resilient nation. Without creating and consolidating a developed infrastructure, no nation can resist global shocks.

Unfortunately, this current government has refused to continue on this path and therefore failed to make our nation less vulnerable and more resilient.

Let me give you just one example: access to electricity. In 2012, 69.2% of Ghanaians had access to electricity. In 2016, when I left office after my first term as President, 79.3% of Ghanaians had access to electricity. A 10 percentage points increase in 4 years. When I left the office, I was confident that a new government will deliver 90%, if not 100% access to electricity in the next four years.

However, the NPP government increased overall access to electricity from 79.3% to only 82.3%, a mere 3 percentage points increase.

It is our sacred mission to turn Ghana into an advanced nation as soon as possible! It is our moral obligation to be bold and to aim for greatness!

“Good enough” is no longer good enough! To prosper and thrive, we need fundamental change! We need to set our standards and expectations far higher than “good enough”! If we settle for “good enough”, we settle for a slow death of our very soul and of our pride.

I run for President because I want to leave a legacy: a solid infrastructure, with 100% access for all. With this legacy, we will build a truly developed Ghana, on a par with the advanced nations.

I know how to do it, part of it I’ve already accomplished, and since I know how to do it and the current government doesn’t, I feel I have the moral duty to ask for a second term. This is not about me, it’s about Ghana and Ghanaians.

This is what Monday’s manifesto is about.
This is why I encourage all of you to watch the launch ceremony.
God bless Ghana! God bless each and every one of you!

Kwamena Ahwoi Suffers From A Messianic Mental Outlook – Amidu

Published

on


Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has descended on Kwamena Ahwoi in a critique of his book, saying the scholar “suffers from a messianic mental outlook.”

Martin Amidu has been releasing a critique on Ahwoi’s book, ‘Working With Rawlings’.

Part of his long write up read, “the preceding analysis and critique have also shown that the author suffers from a messianic mental outlook which gives him a false sense of knowing everything and without whom nothing succeeds in any social or political group of which he becomes a member”.

“This messianic mental outlook or figment of the author will become more apparent and incrementally glaring as the critique of Kwamena Ahwoi’s Working with Rawlings unfolds. Stay with me. I shall be back. Ghana First!” Mr. Amidu said in his critique.

The Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, and the leadership of the NDC, on Friday morning, called on former President Jerry John Rawlings to commiserate with him following the passing of his mother, Madam Victoria Agbotui.

President Mahama, in a brief remark, described the loss of Madam Agbotui as a shared one because she was always on hand to give wise counsel whenever she interacted with him and other party members. 

He consoled President Rawlings and encouraged him to take heart as Mama had lived a full life and had seen it all. 

The NDC flagbearer said “Mama was the kind of person one would assume would live forever…”

He also assured the NDC Founder that the NDC will participate fully in the funeral activities of the late Madam Agbotui. 

President Mahama was accompanied by the Vice Chairman of the NDC Council of Elders Alhaji Mahama Iddrisu, National Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia and other national executives of the party. 

Madam Victoria Agbotui died in the early hours of Thursday, September 24 at the age of 101.
