Ghanaians made biggest mistake voting out Mahama - Kofi Adams
The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) Campaign Coordinator for the 2016 general elections, Kofi Adams, has said Ghanaians will soon regret for failing to re-elect President John Mahama on December 7 to continue a second term of office.
According to him, Ghanaians have done themselves a great disservice by changing the Mahama-led NDC administration, a decision he described as the biggest mistake by the citizenry, as the government had performed exceedingly well in just four years of being in power.
The NDC painfully and unxpectedly lost the 2016 elections both Presidential and Parliamentary, which the party was so confident on winning due to the massive infrastructural development seen during President Mahama’s reign.
However the three-time Flagbearer of the largest opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo Addo was declared winner of the general elections after he polled 5,716, 026 votes to beat the incumbent President John Dramani Mahama who garnered 4,713,277 votes out of the 10,615,361 valid votes cast.
The results were votes from 271 out of 275 constituencies as declared by the Electoral Commission Chairperson, Charlotte Osei.
Speaking on Asempa FM’s Eko Sii Sen show Monday, Kofi Adams who’s also the National Organizer of the NDC stated that Ghanaians will soon miss President Mahama for what he did for the country.
“Ghanaians will soon realize what it is that they have lost in President Mahama. The biggest mistake Ghanaians made was not to have re-elected President Mahama to continue for another term in office. Only God knows why things went the way they did. We left everything to him to decide who would emerge victorious during the elections, but all I’m saying is that Ghanaians will remember President Mahama for the greater good that he ensured in Ghana. Just as we remember Jesus Christ for the good He did on earth, so shall we never forget President Mahama for what he’s done for Ghana.”
