Sometimes politics can expose your ignorance so much that you lose a lot of votes.
I have heard that out of fear for the stature and popularity of John Mahama, NPP leadership including Sammy Awuku keep asking what is John Mahama coming to do? Now listen, John Mahama completed his first term in office with so many achievements across the country. Per the constitution, John Mahama has the right to contest again for a 2nd term.
Akuffo Addo is about to complete his 1st four-year term with so many scandals, unprecedented borrowing and love for corruption. Even with the headache of very bad record, he is entitled to contest for another one term as provided for by the constitution.
So, both John Mahama and Nana Akuffo Addo have another term each. It is more in the interest of Sammy Awuku and to ask president Akuffo Addo in the face of collapsing banks, sleeping and daylight corruption which are normally cleared by the president. What are you thinking about? So Akuffo Addo and John Mahama both have a legal one-term opportunity to seek the mandate of Ghanaians.
The difference, however, is this:
People are calling on John Mahama to come back and provide the needed infrastructure, peace and hope.
On the other hand, people want Akufo-Addo to loose
There is goodwill for John Mahama, but Akuffo Addo has no goodwill
arise, arise Ghana for change
