Ambassador Alhaji Abdul-Rahman Harruna Attah, former High Commissioner of Ghana to Namibia and Botswana has said the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama is a better candidate than Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo ahead of the elections on Monday December 7.
He indicated that he has worked with the two personalities in different areas of their lives therefore, he is best placed to assess the two candidates.
Earlier in the middle of this year, he published a book on Mahama with the unabashed title of admiration: “Awhene Pa Nkasa. Standing with JDM”.
Ambassador Harruna Attah said these on the KSM show when the host programme, Kweku Sintim Misa asked him to predict the out come of the polls.
He “corrected” his host with the following words: “I’d rather rephrase the question: Who would you vote for?
“Of course I will vote for John Mahama”.
Explaining further, he said, “I believe he is a better candidate. I know the two main candidates [on the ballot] and in fairness to my conscience I think he is a better candidate.”
He called on “fair-minded” Ghanaians to recognize the former president’s good works and join him in voting JM.
