President Mahama has charged world leaders to make Pop legend, Michael Jackson's song, "Heal the World" a reality in global affairs.
Addressing the 71 United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, President Mahama was obviously seen as a die-hard fan of Michael Jackson as he intelligently linked current world affairs to the lyrics of Michael's song.
"It is my wish that history will record our time here in this hall as one that gave reality to Michael Jackson's song, heal the world, make the world a better place for you and me, and the entire human race."
The reason why President Mahama chose Michael Jackson in his eloquent speech remains unknown but both Mahama and Michael do share similar experiences regarding the historic fall of the Berlin Wall which "opened a new era of globalisation, trade and interaction".
President Mahama in his speech also charged world leaders to stop seeing Africa as a continent of needs and poverty but rather a region of opportunity and growth.
The iconic presentation of President Mahama remains the last address ever presented by the president as Ghana prepares for the December 7 general elections.
