Former President John Dramani Mahama has made a passionate appeal to Ghanaians to get actively involved in the country’s upcoming general elections scheduled for December 7, 2020.

According to him, the 2020 general elections is a critical moment for the country and that the decision to elect who governs the country cannot be left to a few people.

There seem to be growing apathy among Ghanaians as many people, on social media, have intimidated they may not partake in the upcoming general elections or any other similar elections in future.

But in his new year message to Ghanaians, sighted by ABC News, the flagbearer of the NDC advised citizens strongly against showing apathy in the decision making process as it will not resolve any issue.

He observed that 2019 was a difficult year for majority of Ghanaians, adding that the surest way to alleviate the situation is by exercising their franchise with enthusiasm to usher in a competent government.

“I do not say it lightly when I say that the 2020 elections will be a pivotal event for our country.

“It is one that will determine the destiny of our nation and I believe at this critical stage in our nation’s life that Ghanaians deserve more than ever a government that is honest and truthful with them, a government that takes responsibility and gives them results not excuses or blame, a government that opens the opportunities of our country to all its people and not just a few.

“2019 was a difficult year for Ghanaian businesses and by extension, it affected the quality of life in many Ghanaian homes,” he averred.

John Mahama, who is a one-time President seeking re-election, advanced that his interactions with many business owners revealed that most of them are despondent because their enterprises are collapsing.

“But to all, my countrymen and women, I urge you to keep hope alive. It is said that the darkest hour is before the dawn. We can change things and make our nation better.

“We must all work together to build our beloved country. I urge you not to despair, I urge you not to be passive and most of all I urge you not be apathetic for there is nothing to gain in apathy except regret,” he admonished.

“If we are apathetic others will make the decisions for us,” John Mahama added.

He claimed that the ‘milk and honey’ in the land of Ghana was being fed to a selected few while the majority perish in “pain, anguish and unfulfilled promises”.

“In all things, however, let’s continue to give thanks to the almighty God because we have the most valuable gift and that is the gift of life.

“In our personal lives, in our personal struggles, in our relationships with others, in our business commitment and in all other commitments and endeavours we are presented with a new opportunity to change things for the better in order to triumph over the setbacks we have encountered in the past,” he urged.

  1. Why is John Mahama so desperate? I cannot think far. Mahama rigged the elections in 2012 and wanted to rig again in 2016 but in life there’s an end to everything you do. All his evil agenda with his Ndcfuo will finally come end. Ghanaians are not stupid as Ndcfuo think.

  2. Yes come sign IPP and take your share. Send students to Cuba and take a percentage of the scholarship money. Sign gas deal at Gabon and inflate the price over one billion dollars. Give national treasure to your brother bauxite. The same brother did not pay duties at port to the tune of 12 million dollars. Deceiving Ghanaians with your Green book that Ghana roads are done.
    Just to mention a few of some your nefarious activities when you were President. I am asking you, what happened to STX Korea deal. Ghana spent over 48 million dollars, where is the money. Mahama do you think Ghanaians wash their faces upwards. That’s my question to you?

  3. Please you had your chance and never made use of it. Mr ex-president, Ghanaians have moved on and it’s time you move on yourself as a person. You’ve done your part and ghanaians are grateful to your contributions.
