Says he has the chance of becoming President again
The a top financier of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Assin North constituency, Kennedy Agyepong, has predicted the second coming of Ghana’s former President John Mahama. Speaking on Adom FM’s Badwam morning show on Tuesday, the NPP financier said the chances of Mr Mahama becoming Ghana’s President for the second time is high.
The MP was reacting to a story published in the Daily Guide newspaper about an alleged security breach at the cargo section of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) which was attributed to him. His allegation that the Airport Security decided not to allow Ibrahim Mahama’s cars which were brought to the place after servicing abroad to go through security checks, was debunked by a Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi, who spoke on behalf of Mr Ibrahim Mahama.
A former deputy minister of communication under the Mahama administration, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, who was on the same programme with the Assin North MP, exposed the distortions and the misrepresentations in Kennedy Agyepong’s story with authentic documents.
The Assin North MP then shifted the discussion to Mr Mahama’s second coming. He told the host that it was not Ibrahim’s issue that worries him, but the second coming of John Mahama which seem highly possible.
Since the immediate past President John Mahama left power, his name has dominated media discussions in Ghana.
Recent observation from comments on social and traditional media seem to suggest that many Ghanaians have started showing remorse they unknowingly voted Mr Mahama out, and it is clear that one year after the Presidential election, a lot of Ghanaians are still having the general election hangover. Ghanaians are already beginning to lament that the present administration is a sham.
Among the lamenters are some ardent supporters of President Akufo-Addo. Some of supporters of the ruling party are gradually getting weak with many having some elements of regrets.
The youth who were promised jobs are coming out to shout that President Akufo-Addo and Bawumia have abandoned the promises they made to them during the electioneering campaigns while others are saying they have created jobs and business empires for their family members and in laws only.
Former President Mahama recently caused a stir in Somanya, Tamale, Kumasi etc during his visits to these places. He was received by a large crowd of admirers and disappointed Ghanaians.
