As Ghana sees the last days of Mahama in power, the president is trying to consolidate on the achievements of his government and ensure a smooth transition to the new government as he has promised.
Since losing the elections, President John Mahama has not failed to start wrapping things up in the most statesman ways possible.
One major thing the outgoing president is doing in his last days is to ensure the starting of projects that have been passed by the parliament during his time in office. The president was able to kick start the project of the University of Environment and Sustainable Development in the Western Region.
President John Mahama also cut the sod for the construction of five new ultra-modern district hospitals in Ghana, as part of his last activities in power. This took place on the last day of 2016, at Weta in the Ketu North District of the Volta Region.
Apart from starting projects, he was also able to inaugurate the new headquarters of the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences which was recently completed.
Also, the president is drumming support for the incoming government of Nana Addo.
There are some very important things being said by the president as his days in power come to an end. “I inherited a peaceful and stable nation from my predecessor and I’m happy to hand over a peaceful and stable nation to my successor,” is one of those things.
Another great thing he is saying in his last days apart from calling on the next government to complete the projects of his administration, is how much he is at peace with himself.
To show that he is as he said at peace with himself, the president took out his last new year in power to dance with his family like he has never danced at the Ringway Assemblies of God.
Above every other thing, the president is spending his last days thanking Ghana for giving him the opportunity to serve, as well as the country’s support.
