Ex-President John Dramani Mahama has said that Ghana is facing a crisis of confidence in political leadership.
According to Mahama under President Nana Akufo-Addo’s administration the country’s economic fortunes and democratic credentials are in shambles.
He mentioned economic hardship, insecurity, political and ethnic polarization, deepening inequality, politicization of democratic institutions, corruption, challenges in health and education sector as problems under Nana Addo’s government.
“This has led to a crisis of confidence in the political leadership. Ghana is a country with exceptional human talent. Time is ticking fast and yet we can make things right if we work as one nation with a common destiny. As I have said in the past, broad consultations and consensus building does not take anything away from a leader,” he noted while the NDC marked June 4th celebration.
For the first time, the people of Ghana, comrades, supporters and sympathizers of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will commemorate the June 4 Uprising without the inspirational and arresting physical presence of the Founder of our party, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings (Rtd.), our former President, who departed from us last year” he stated while speaking on celebrating June 4th with Rawlings.
He added that Ghana has exceptional human talent and for that reason the nation can make things right by working as one nation with a common destiny.
