Presidency is for serious individuals and not comedians – Mahama subtly jabs Bawumia

Former President and NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama emphasized that the presidency is a serious responsibility and should be entrusted to capable individuals.

Expressing his concern over the frivolous attitude of some leaders, he indirectly criticized Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for various national misfortunes.

Mahama questioned why Bawumia would take credit for positive outcomes but refuse to accept responsibility for poor governance.

Mahama stressed that Ghanaians are experiencing critical times, making it imperative to avoid levity.

He argued that there is no room for outdated lies and hollow catchphrases, insisting that genuine efforts are needed to alleviate the suffering of Ghanaians instead of avoiding essential duties and offering empty promises.

The former president expressed astonishment that someone who has played a significant role in leading the nation into its current predicament would now try to escape accountability and resort to baseless promises.

He declared that this is not the time for jokes or for entrusting the leadership to someone who has contributed to the nation’s hardships but cannot manage them.

“The presidency cannot be given to those who portray themselves as the future while they have been the centre of our current hardships.

“It is an affront to the intelligence of Ghanaians. You cannot take credit at one moment and then disregard your responsibilities the next. Empty slogans and desperate promises have no place in the nation’s leadership,” he added.
