Quit if you can’t do the job – Mahama to Akufo-Addo

Former President John Dramani Mahama has told President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to step down if he cannot do the job as President.

He asked the President to stop lamenting and focus on addressing the problems that the people are saddled with.

Mr Mahama noted that leadership is about responsibility, “it is only a poor leader who shirks responsibilities and shift blames.”

Speakin at the 40th Anniversary commemoration of the 31st December Revolution in Accra on Friday, said “Leadership is about responsibility.

“It is only a poor leader who shirks responsibilities and shift blames. We had power crisis– dumsor in this country– because of lack of investment in generation for many years, and so we were consuming more power than we generated. That was the situation I met, and yet I did not say it is not my fault. I went to Parliament, took responsibility for it and promised to fix it, which we did.”

“Today somebody [President Akufo-Addo] claims he inherited a weak economy, which he hasn’t been able to be responsible for, 5 years on. It’s always about Mahama and NDC. If he [Nana Akufo-Addo] can not do the job, he should give way for the NDC to do it for you.”

Mr Mahama on Friday participated in a ceremony to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 31st December Revolution.

Organsised by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and held at the Town Council Line Park in Accra, the route march, lighting of the perpetual flame and durbar was an opportunity to reminisce on the core values of the 31st December Revolution and based on which the 4th Republic was established.
