President Akufo-Addo has urged Ghanaians to refrain from voting for the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), former President John Dramani Mahama, in the upcoming December 7, 2024 elections.

Addressing attendees at the unveiling of the vice-presidential candidate of his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, in Kumasi on Tuesday, July 9, 2024, Akufo-Addo pointed out that Mahama is the only president in Ghana’s Fourth Republic to have been removed from office after just one term.

He emphasized that Mahama’s tenure was marked by poor performance and asserted that allowing him back into office would be detrimental.

“Let us remember one thing, the person we are contesting against – the leader of the NDC – since the inception of the fourth republic (1992), General Rawlings was president for two successive terms; John Agyekum Kufuor, two successive terms; Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, two successive terms; he (Mahama) is the only person who got one term.

“And he is the same person saying that we should make him president again,” the president said in Twi.

He added, “Someone we removed from power without any effort now wants us to bring him back to the presidency; it is not going to happen. We are not taking him back today, we are not taking him back tomorrow.”

Akufo-Addo also criticized Mahama for portraying himself as if he has never held power before.

“He speaks as if we don’t know him. Does he have anything new to offer? We have seen the works of his hands before and that is why we removed him. He is not good enough for the job.”
