Former president John Dramani Mahama has expressed concern over security issues in Ghana.
As part of a message shared with Ghanaians on May 1, 2019, he stated that the situation has become a threat to foreign and domestic investors.
He went on to say: “Through your toils, over the years, we have added to the gains of our forebears. I am, however, aware of the present harsh and hard socioeconomic environment within which so much is still expected of you.”

Mahama also took the opportunity to commend all Ghanaian workers, as well as all partners around the world for their relentless sacrifices.
In his opinion, massive job losses as well as massive unemployment have become the order of the day, and these are because of unfulfilled promises by President Akufo-Addo’s government.
He therefore used the opportunity to encourage Ghanaian workers not to give up on Ghana and themselves, but instead keep hope alive and pray for better times in the coming years.
Mahama concluded by reminding the government of the overarching need to work conscientiously towards the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in this particular case, Goal 8, which calls for the promotion of sustainable economic growth and decent work for all.
