Mr Mahama lamented that the current government and political leaders have not pay heed to his call but he hopes they have a change of mind and reach out to him soon.

However, Mr John Mahama explained that the dangers politicians face if they fail to create jobs for Ghanaians is the people lose faith and interest in the system of governance.

“When people begin to lose faith in your democratic system of governance, and people begin to lose faith in the state ability to protect to care for them, that is when you begin to have situations when people begin to take arms against the state,” he noted.
