An article by one Andrew Krow, published on GhanaWeb.com under the title “Ghanaians demand John Mahama's return” has caused a conversation on social media.
In the now viral article, the writer praised how politicians at the funeral grounds of the late Major Maxwell Mahama “behaved” themselves and did not resort to using the tragedy to score political points.
According to the writer, all politicians present at the grounds exhibited “maturity and decency”.
The article continued that members of the public who thronged to the State House to witness the final funeral rites were “demanding” the return of John Mahama out of frustration.
John Mahama is an uncle to the late Maxwell Mahama and he led the family to lay wreaths on the coffin.
The former president was reportedly mobbed by supporters who “chanted” their regret for voting him out when he entered the funeral grounds.
Again, according to the writer, when the former president joined the family of the late military officer to lay wreath, “the whole atmosphere suddenly got charged with shouts and chants from the crowd applauding him and shouting for his return”.
But are these basis enough to claim that Ghanaians are calling for the return of John Mahama considering that he was voted out in a historic defeat in the 2016 elections.
