All too soon, President John Dramani Mahama will go into Ghana's history as a former president.
With just hours left for his tenure to officially come to an end, President Mahama has not only packed bag and baggage at his office but also consoled himself with this heart-touching post.
President Mahama during an inauguration of the Cardio-thoracic department, this what the outgoing president had to say about his outgoing administration:
“I just remembered a joke I told yesterday, I was at the Korle-Bu Hospital to launch a new equipment that they bought for the Cardiothoracic department. …After we finished commissioning the piece of equipment, of course the nurses and other health personnel came around and were asking to take photographs with me, some of them took selfies – all kinds of photos – and just when I was walking away, I reminded them that the photographs will expire on Saturday, on the 7th January. Yea, so the title will expire at midnight tonight actually,” Mr Mahama said on Friday when he inaugurated an office complex for the West African Examination Council.
Mahama will be handing over the presidency to president-elect Nana Akufo-Addo, who, will, in turn be sworn in on Saturday 7 January.
