A seasoned politician and founder of the African University College of Communications (AUCC), Kojo Yankah, has advised John Dramani Mahama to reconsider his bid to contest the 2020 elections.
John Dramani Mahama has made known his intentions to contest the 2020 elections saying he owes it to serve Ghanaians once again.
The public announcement by the former president was welcomed with solidarity messages from supporters and party executives who described Mahama’s decision as timely.
But Kojo Yankah shared a varied view on this development. In an open letter to John Mahama, the renowned politician believes Mahama would have to reconsider his decision especially when he could not solve all the problems of Ghana.
“…Of my knowledge of history, no leader of any country has been able to solve all the problems of that country. Even more inspiring for me, America’s Jimmy Carter, who was in office for only one term, served the world and humanity much better when he was out of office.
John, my humble request is for you to give a second thought to your decision. If l am too late in coming, or if you have heard my reasoning before, l wish you well,” part of his open letter stated.
What is interesting about this publication is that Kojo Yankah is a top member of the NDC – the party on whose ticket John Mahama is contesting.
