Ambassador Daniel Osei, former Ghana’s Consul to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) under former president John Dramani Mahama, has said his greatest mistake was the fact that he took an appointment from the ex-president.
According to the avowed critic of the ex-Head of State, the reasons for which Mahama appointed him were at odds with his principles and he regrets taking up that appointment.
Ambassador Osei has strongly campaigned against Mahama being re-elected the flagbearer to lead the NDC into the crucial 2020 elections saying the latter lacks visionary thinking and competence to lead the country.
Speaking to host Kwaku Owusu Adjei on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa FM, Ambassador Osei revealed that ex-President Mahama and his government did everything possible in 2016 to stop him from returning to Ghana to campaign against the party.
“They did everything to stop me but I had to fight them and there’s an email trail of my conversations to come to Ghana, I could have just sat quietly somewhere but I came down to Ghana and contributed my quota toward pushing the party.
I came down several months before the elections to campaign and in any constituency that I worked we won. So it’s not about the person," he said.
He’s stressed that delegates of the NDC will do the party a great disservice if they go to the polls on February 23, 2019, and vote to elect his former boss.
He added that Mahama must be rejected so as to prevent him from coming in to amass wealth much to the detriment of the country.
"All Mahama knows is money, money, money. Let’s not elect him to lead the NDC again, we have better alternatives, leaders who are visionaries,” he said.
