Founder of the Danquah Institute, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko on the leadership of former president, John Dramani Mahama, has said that the former president did not do his best during his tenure in office.
According to Otchere Darko, Mahama had more resources within his reach, much more than any other President under the fourth republic ever had, but he made the worst decisions and wasted them completely.
Speaking on Metro TV's Goodevening Ghana programme, he said Mahama’s chances at winning the hearts of Ghanaians for another term would be an onerous task, considering he left a dented legacy and a lot of ‘mess’ for the next administration to work on.
"He was the most blessed president ever in this country’s history… by the time he took over, we were just a year or so in an oil producer, cocoa prices were good, Ghana had really not much of a debt… but what did he do, he wasted the opportunity.”
According to Gabby, Mahama may struggle with a message to convince Ghanaians to earn their votes in 2020 despite the fact that he qualifies as the NDC’s best candidate.
“This is a candidate who registered the biggest defeat in Ghana’s history as an incumbent but he is the most marketable… he has the wherewithal and he’s been marketed but what will be his message in 2020”.
