‘Mahama not bad leader’ – Korankye Ankrah

the Royal House Chapel International founder told Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Wednesday March 2 that: “Given the difficult nature of running a third world country like Ghana – we just moved into the middle income bracket, still with challenges, oil is not doing well on the international market, gold prices have dropped, difficulties and challenges and so on and so forth – I would not say that he has been a bad leader. No.”

According to Rev Korankye Ankrah, “under the circumstances, I think that he’s done his best, and still doing his best in the same way as I would have rated president Kufuor in the eight years. Given the background that he did his best, [he] must be commended”.

“Whoever becomes president after November 7, I would not expect a magical performance from that person. It’s not easy in this part of the world,” Rev Korankye Ankrah added.

He continued: “Let’s say we don’t have in John Mahama a bad leader; in the same way we didn’t have a bad leader in John Agyekum Kufuor; in Rawlings, a bad leader because listen, to lead this nation [is not easy]…I’m not ashamed to say the president is my friend and I have had personal conversations and visits with him and when I visit him and he’s telling me some of his difficulties and challenges, it’s amazing, but the joy of it is that at the end of every conversation, he concludes by telling me: ‘But Apostle General as you pray for me, I know that things will turn around. I’ll do this and so on.’”
