The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and the overlord of the Ashanti Kingdom has asked former President John Dramani Mahama to explain to Ghanaians how his mistakes will not be repeated in case he wins this year’s elections to become president again.
Former President John Dramani Mahama introduced his running mate, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, to the Ashanti Monarch on Wednesday at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi at a durbar.
The Asantehen noted the quest for the former president to be president.
“I have spoken to you a lot and I have said that if you want to come back, let Ghanaians know what went wrong yesterday.
“Also let Ghanaians know that the mistakes won’t be repeated.”
He added: “When you lost the election, I said that Ghanaians voted against you out of disappointment and anger. And when you were re-elected as flagbearer and you informed me, I asked you whether you have looked at your mistakes in the past and how you can convince Ghanaians how you will correct those mistakes
He espoused: “The sitting President, Nana Akufo-Addo, wants to be re-elected for another 4 years and he has been going round explaining to Ghanaians what he has done.
“You have just told me what you did when you were President, and what you want to do if you get another chance.
“What you have to do is to tell Ghanaians the mistakes you committed in the past whilst President and how you intend to correct all those wrongs.”
