The former president, John Dramani Mahama, is marking his 62nd birthday today, November 29, 2020.
The presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) was born on November 29, 1958, a year later after Ghana attained independence in 1957.
Mahama is a native of Damongo in the Damango-Daboya Constituency in the Northern Region.
The former president has lived through historic moments, including when Kwame Nkrumah was appointed Ghana’s first president in 1960 and the first coup of February 24, 1966, which brought an end to the rule of Nkrumah and his government.
Although the former president is yet to officially mark his significant day online, party loyalists of the NDC, friends, and admirers have taken to social media to eulogise him.
TV3 broadcast journalist, Courage Yayra Klutse, prayed his best wishes for the former president along with stunning photos in a post on Facebook.
''Happy Birthday John Dramani Mahama. I wish you nothing but God’s grace and profound favour. His mercies endure, Your Excellency,'' his post read.
Nate Ekue Mensah, an admirer of John Mahama simply wrote: ''Best wishes on this day and beyond.''
The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam Nartey George, also sought divine intervention as the NDC presidential candidate seeks reelection in the 7 December polls.
''May the GOD of a second chance, the ONE who ordains Kings and crowns leaders speak for you today Sir. As you turn 62 years today, may your heart's desires be met, and may your joy be full.
Thanks for all you've done for our Nation Sir. Happy birthday HE John Dramani Mahama,'' he wrote in a post on Facebook.
