On Wednesday 26th August 2020, former President John Dramani Mahama, who is also the flag bearer of the New Democratic Congress, visited Manhyia Palace at Kumasi.
His intention was to introduce his running mate Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang to The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
Otumfuo asked Mahama to let Ghanaians know the mistakes he did during his time and what he will do to resolve them if Ghanaians are to elect him again.
“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 continued by saying; “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 continued: “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 wrongs of the past and how you will correct those wrongs.”
