Mahama’s Absence From Public Eye; Is There Any Cause For Alarm?



His Excellency John Dramani Mahama

John Mahama, the flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the 2024 elections and former President of Ghana, has recently been notably absent from the public eye. This absence has raised questions and concerns, especially given the significance of the events he has missed.

Mr. Mahama, who governed the country from 2012 to 2016 before losing to the New Patriotic Party’s Nana Akufo-Addo, has been conspicuously missing from six major events organized by the Manhyia Palace to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the reign of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II. This includes last Sunday’s grand durbar, a pivotal event marking the climax of the Asantehene’s silver jubilee celebrations.

The former President’s absence is particularly unusual considering his historically close relationship with the Asantehene. Traditionally, Mr. Mahama has maintained a visible presence at significant events related to the Asantehene, underscoring a strong personal and political connection. His current lack of visibility, therefore, stands out, prompting speculation and concern.

Compounding these concerns is the fact that Mr. Mahama’s main opponent, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia of the NPP, has remained active on the campaign trail. Dr. Bawumia’s ongoing engagement with the public contrasts sharply with Mr. Mahama’s uncharacteristic withdrawal, further fueling rumors about the NDC flag bearer’s possible ill health.

The absence of Mr. Mahama from these critical events has led to widespread speculation and questions about his well-being. While there have been persistent rumors regarding his health, no official statements have been made to confirm or deny these claims. This silence has only served to heighten public concern.

Given the importance of the upcoming 2024 elections, the health and visibility of political leaders are of paramount interest to the electorate. Mr. Mahama’s continued absence from significant public engagements could have implications for his campaign and the broader political landscape in Ghana.

As the nation awaits clarity, it is crucial for the NDC and Mr. Mahama’s team to address these concerns directly. Transparency regarding his health and intentions moving forward will be vital in maintaining public trust and ensuring that the political discourse remains focused on the issues at hand.

In the meantime, the nation watches closely, hoping for reassurances about Mr. Mahama’s health and readiness to lead. The upcoming weeks will undoubtedly be pivotal in shaping the narrative of the 2024 election campaign.
