So, what accounts for the enduring popularity of His Excellency John Dramani Mahama across the world. One of the most important things that is appealing about the former Ghanaian leader is that he represents the change from the outmoded politics that has plagued the continent for decades.
He is a man who wants nothing for himself or his family and does not make his decision to fill his own pockets. John Mahama did everything to change the face of Ghana his four years.
He has no selfish agenda. He is 100 percent dedicated to improving the country.

With his great leadership of bringing Ghana to next level, Ghanaians always looked back to their motherland and its progress and truly believed it wouldn’t have been possible without John Mahama. Happenings in the country after his exit make this assertion solid.

I am very intrigued and impressed with what a simple individual who is now a global icon can do. In my opinion, what John Mahama did and doing in terms of corralling fervor of motherland and patriotism across the globe is truly breathtaking. He has awakened that subconsciousness among expats. I believe that a wide majority feels that he is an unprecedented leader.
