It turns out that the president begun his early life with his mother in the rural zone of the Northern region where basic public utilities like water and electricity were non-existent.

That was not all, President Mahama was also a victim of Ghana's severe economic hardship in the 70's and 80's. Ghana's economic and political recession forced the president to flee Ghana for Nigeria where he lived with his father, Emmanuel Adama Mahama, was a Member of Parliament from the West Gonja constituency and the first Regional Commissioner of the Northern Region during Ghana’s First Republic.

So you see, it was not all rosy for President Mahama as a child and young man. He suffered just like any other normal Ghanaian and African would.
