According to him, one of the biggest mistakes of the erstwhile John Mahama administration was that inexperienced people surrounded the President and could not offer him good counsel.

He said President Akufo-Addo is repeating the very same mistakes in his government, accusing him of learning nothing from the tenure of his predecessor.

He warned that no government can make a headway by side-lining the experienced politicians.

"I had an opportunity of even telling him [Mahama] that it is very important to get very seasoned members who have gone through it all, who have made it in life and who are not going to look for material gains, but they are looking at the legacy they can leave behind, they will speak to you truthfully so that some of the mistakes you are making you don’t.

"His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is repeating some of the mistakes of John Mahama,” Mr. Bagbin observed.

He went on to state that he warned ex-President Mahama of tolling such a lane, but his words fell on deaf ears.

According to him, some power brokers in the then governing NDC considered him to be a liability and ended up alienating his views.

"My views are being heard but they are not being accepted by some power brokers from former President Mahama’s camp some of whom were unhappy with some early warning signs I gave in 2013,” he said, before adding that "instead of them seeing me as an asset they rather see me as a liability.”
