And they don’t even know they are confirming the sacred truth that John Mahama is an achiever and a great leader adored, respected and loved across the globe. How many former presidents (world) received invitation to grace the ceremony? That is the question should be asking themselves as they splash pictures of the man they dislike so much, on their walls. The man has over thousand international invitations on his table to honour. To speak on all issues environment, politics, good governance,education, global economy etc. I don’t think any of our former presidents went through this intense international pressure after leaving office. He spent four years in office but rated amongst the best leaders in the world.
Those happily sharing the pictures with their mischievous comments should find out why the former President was invited to grace the occasion. Heads of multinational institutions, heads of states, religious organizations and leaders, former presidents etc all have higher appraisal for Mr Mahama. Many of these persons predicted his second coming after the 2016 election, commended him for his display of maturity and love for his nation.
He will continue to enjoy this respect because of the record he left behind vis-a-vis its effect on the nation’s economic revolution. In its 2016 growth forecast, the World Bank in its report projected over 8% economic growth because investments made in the oil and gas industries by the Mahama’s administration. Recently in Johannesburg, Former President Mahama was awarded at the African Leadership Magazine Person of the Year Award. He won African Political Leader of the Year 2016 and Africa Personality of the Year 2016.
Between 2001 and 2002 we were told by the then government and its propagandists that honourable Osafo Marfo was voted the Best Finance Minister in the World only to hear two weeks after that announcement that the man had been removed from office on grounds of incompetence and fishy deals.
Can they respectfully post for our itching eyes, pictures of the award. If the former president was invited to join the Finance Minister for the ward, we would have seen him join the Finance Minister as he receives the award. It is a common practice among politicians when they meet on international platforms. The nature ones take group pictures to show the world the uniqueness of the Ghanaian and that was exactly what the former president did. He exhibited maturity and high reasoning skill.
