“Only God Can Decide Who Would be Your Successor” – Mahama Tells President Akufo-addo

John Dramani Mahama, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, has countered President Akufo-Addo’s statement regarding his successor, emphasizing that the power to determine the next leader does not rest with the incumbent president.

Speaking at a ceremony in Damongo to mark the commencement of a new multipurpose Ndewura Jakpa palace construction in the Savannah Region, Mahama stressed the importance of a peaceful and credible election. He suggested that ensuring such an election would be Akufo-Addo’s most significant legacy.

Mahama’s response comes after Akufo-Addo’s comment that he cannot hand over power to someone he had previously removed from office.

“I wish to urge our president; this was my message to Nana Akufo-Addo, unfortunately, he has left, and he has left only our member of the council of state on the high table,” Mahama stated. “I wish to urge our President that the best legacy he can leave this country is to superintend over a peaceful, transparent, and credible election.”

He further reminded Akufo-Addo that God ultimately decides who leads, rejecting the notion that the incumbent president has the authority to select his successor.

“It is God who makes rulers, and he can never ever be the one to choose his successor. It is God who will choose his successor,” Mahama affirmed.
