Contrary to claims by the opposition that a second term for President John Dramani Mahama and his National Democratic Congress administration will spell doom for Ghana, vice chancellor of the University for Professional Studies, Prof Joshua Alabi thinks otherwise.
According to the respected Professor, Ghana stands a chance to make enormous gains if President John Mahama is reelected for a second term in the November 7 elections.
Taking his turn on Starr Fm’s Star Chart hosted by Bola Ray, the former Greater Accra regional Minister under the Rawlings administration said, “I have known Mahama from childhood. We lived around the same vicinity in Tamale. He is a humble guy.”
“He is doing well and should be given a second chance,” the former Northern Regional Minister noted, adding; “he is one President who has gone through a lot of demonstrations and he has been able to maintain his calm.”
“I strongly believe that given the next term, he will move Ghana to a different level. That is my belief. I’m saying this not because I’m lazy, but I just admire him for the way he’s been able to hold himself up,” he stated.
His comment comes at a time members of the biggest opposition party have been chiding the Mahama government for doing little to develop the country, claiming that, policies of the government have negatively impacted on Ghanaians.
Recently, the 2016 flag bearer of the opposition party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo implored Ghanaians not to make a mistake to give the Mahama government a second term.
According to Nana Akufo-Addo, the NDC government is bereft of any new ideas in the management of the nation’s resources for which reason it must be rejected at the November 7, polls.
But Prof Alabi, who is also member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing, Ghana and fellow of the Institute of Taxation, disagreed, insisting that, despite the daunting challenges that confronted the Mahama government; its achievements so far indicate that when given a second term, the country will be better off.
“A lot of people will have been off with the numerous problems that he faced – the problem [election petition] in court for about eight months, single spine problems – and these are problems, which were not caused by him, but then once you are the president, you are in charge… he is really focused,” he noted
Those threatening ‘Chiefs Endorsing Mahama ’ should back off – Omane Boamah
Minister of Communication, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah is warning all those threatening some chiefs, especially in the Eastern and Volta regions for endorsing President Mahama.
According to him, there is nothing wrong in chiefs recognising and showering praises on a people-centred President for his works.
“It is a strong warning, all those people planning [against the chiefs] should back off; they will not succeed” he stated on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem Monday.
The acting paramount chief of Kwahu, Nana Asiedu Agyeman III was subjected to vitriolic attack after he promised President Mahama 85 percent votes in the November elections.
He was reported to have said given what President Mahama has done for the people of Kwahuman and the entire country, he deserves to be given another four-year term.
But the youth and some chiefs condemned his action and called on him to render an unqualified apology to the residents.
The chiefs went further to pacify the land with sheep and schnapps at the Abetifi palace after the endorsement by the chief who is also the Adontenhene of the Kwahu traditional to prevent any wrath from the gods.
However, Dr. Omane Boamah could not fathom why people will insult the Kwahu chief when in fact government has built hospitals, roads and school in his town.
He also cited the Kotoso water project which when completed will end the perennial water problems in the town.
The Communications Minister also complained about a similar ordeal a chief in the Volta region is going through for endorsing President Mahama.
Dr. Omane Boamah said in spite of the machinations, the projects of the government will be visible for all to see.
