President John Dramani Mahama has taken his turn at the United Nation's 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). The president in his address at the assembly raised critical issues regarding the development of Ghana and Africa as a whole.
Tackling issues regarding the position of Africa on the world stage, President Mahama warned that Africa should never be forced to fully comply to the demands of world democracy. Mahama also warned that Africa is a continent with 53 nations and not necessary a single country.
"Africa does not need your sympathy or Overseas Development Assistance. Africa needs a fair chance to trade with the rest of the world and amongst ourselves," Mahama argued to several heads of states.
The iconic presentation of President Mahama remains the last address ever presented by the president as Ghana prepared for the December 7 general elections.
