As Ghana prepares for 2020 polls, a lot of people are saying that the major opposition party NDC led John Mahama could floor the ruling Government NPP, led Nana Addo.
However, Professor Stephen Adei who was the Former Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) has said that voting for Mahama could make the situations in Ghana worse.
This isn’t the first time he’s making such a statement and he’s standing right on it again saying that Mahama is not competent enough and well equipped with the necessary qualities such as strategic thinking, amongst others to lead the country.
“The above argument leads to whether Mahama has the leadership qualities to lead Mahama/Naana duo to make a difference in Ghana in the one term in four years. In that regard, I stand my assertion which I made 16th October 2016…it still holds; John Mahama today as he was then, does not have the full complement of leadership competencies to lead Ghana, be it on vision, strategic thinking, selecting or leading even a team B, curbing the menace of corruption or prosecuting a credible development agenda”, he told Joy SMS host Kojo Yankson, monitored MyNewsGh.com
“Ghana will become the worse off if Mahama becomes president again.”, Prof. Adei said vehemently.
He added that “the NDC did Ghana a disservice fielding him as a one-term presidential candidate, who can serve for only four years.”
Continuing, he said “even among the narrow confines of those who contested him were better candidates.”
Those who contested Mr Mahama during the NDC presidential primaries were Professor Joshua Alabi, Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin, Sylvester Mensah, Dr Ekow Spio-Gabrah and Goosie Tanoh
“But Ghana’s politics does not always produce the best candidates but those who ‘moneycracy’ and propaganda favour”, said Professor Adei.
