The Former president of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama, has said that the defeat he suffered during the 2020 elections was God’s will.
In a speech delivered by Alhaji Limuna Mohammed-Muniru, a former Minister for food and agriculture, he said although Ghanaians voted massively for the former president during the 2020 elections, God in His own wisdom knows why he [Mahama] lost.
“The former President says you have shown him love by endorsing him overwhelmingly. You gave him your mandate but God didn’t give him the power. And he says I should tell you that God doesn’t make mistakes. He may have very good reasons why God didn’t give him the power.
It is not all that glitters that is gold. Today, if John Mahama were in power and we have ”dumsor” (regular power cuts) what would you say? So, God in His own wisdom knows that the people who have done the ‘shitting’ must come and clean their own ‘shit’ before we come properly. So, when they finish cleaning it, Insha Allah, come 2024, I can assure you,” Alhaji Limuna said.
Alhaji Limuna delivered the message on behalf of the former President at a durbar which was organized in Nabdam, a district in the Upper East Region. The durbar was organized to mark the 10th anniversary of the installation of Na Pa-Riyoung Kosom Asaga Yelzoya II as the Paramount Chief of Nangodi. The NDC believes strongly that they won the 2020 elections but however, the Electoral Commission declared the NPP as winners.
