Since losing out in the December 2016 elections, Ghanian president, Mahama is winning the respect of the world. This is mostly as he keeps showing support for the incoming government of Addo and his role in entrenching democracy in the country.
After realising he had lost the election, Mahama who is the first Ghanaian president in the fourth republic to lose a reelection bid immediately called his opponent to concede defeat and congratulate the latter.
This has attracted the praise of African leaders including Former Nigeria’s president, Goodluck Jonathan who said he is “immensely proud of the maturity and high patriotism displayed by President John Mahama who has just conceded to Mr. Nana Akufo-Addo”.
At home, the president is not losing the admiration of many as members of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference called on him at the Flagstaff House, Kanda, to commend him for his demonstration of statesmanship after peacefully conceding defeat.
During the visit, Mr Mahama went on to display much grace with his comment on handing over the government peacefully to the next president. According to him, “I inherited a peaceful and stable country from my predecessor, the late President John Evans Atta Mills and will also hand over a peaceful and stable government to my successor, the President-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.”
During the visit, the bishops said, “We the Catholic Bishops conference will like to commend you for your demonstration of statesmanship, which has seen Ghana’s general election through peacefully”.
Others including Mr Charles Kwabena Okyere, who is the Patron of the Hope Welfare Club and The National Commission on Civic Education, as well as many others had earlier praised Mr. Mamma’s show of maturity and statesmanship.
It will be recalled that Gambian President Yahya Jammeh, has rejected the outcome of the country’s election after losing, hence pushing the country at a brink of a serious crisis.
