We can bounce back with the right leadership – Mahama

Story: News Desk 

Former President John Dramani  Mahama says that Ghana will be able to turn its fortunes around and get back on track with the right leadership in governance.

According to him, Ghana deserves quality leaders, better governance and accountability with a strong economy that creates opportunities for all Ghanaians, not just a few. 

He said this in a post on Wednesday, March 6, 2024 to mark the country’s 67th Independence Day celebration.

The flagbearer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) expressed the belief that the country can get back on track as the “Black Star of Africa, as envisioned by those who sacrificed their lives to give us this precious gift of freedom.”

Mr. Mahama stated that the country must make progress and build a better society for Ghanaians, emphasisng that Ghana must hold on to hope, determination and a collective will to overcome any challenges. 

The former President stressed that the Independence Day celebration had provided the country yet another opportunity to reflect as a people bound by a shared destiny on the “journey of our great nation, even as we face avoidable tribulations of economic hardship, uncertainty, and a crisis of leadership.”

“As we commemorate the 67th anniversary of our Independence and the freedom that binds us together, I invite you to acknowledge the struggles that have shaped our lives and our dear country, Ghana,” Mr Mahama said.

He admonished Ghanaians to remember the inspirational and visionary leaders who kindled in their hearts the flame of hope for a better Ghana and the sacrifices of their forebears led by Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

“Today, we can all agree that this is undoubtedly not the Ghana we want or the country our forebears sacrificed their lives for. We cannot turn a blind eye to the stark similarity between a colonial power that gunned down our people and today’s leaders who preside over the murder of innocent civilians who stepped out to vote and strengthen our democracy,” he said.

The flagbearer for the opposition NDC said Ghana cannot afford to turn a blind eye to the pressing issues at hand, highlighting the stark reality of widespread unemployment, with a considerable number of the youth seeking better opportunities abroad.
