Overlord of the Gonja Traditional area, Yagbonwura Tuntumba Boresa I has eulogised former president John Dramani Mahama as a ‘hero’.
He made this comment when the 2020 National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer paid a courtesy call on him Friday at his palace as part of his thank you tour.
He commended Mr Mahama for running to the Supreme Court to seek justice when he felt cheated in the 2020 elections.
“Indeed, the 2020 general election was a hurdle, your excellency, you are a hero. This is because your participation in the fight to lead Ghana though did not achieve success but largely brought peace to mother Ghana and to the greatest extent added value and respect to the Ghanaian democracy,” he stated.
“Your excellency, former president, you did your part by serving your sovereign country, Ghana. The Almighty Allah will guide and lead you to success. We are proud of you and words of inspiration, joy, and happiness cannot demonstrate our appreciation to you for not taking the law into your hands. Ladies and gentlemen, these are compliments of a hero,” he added
Referring to a quote in the Bible, the Yagbonwura said: “Let me refer you to a verse in Proverbs: ‘For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.”
