Brigadier General Nunoo Mensah says former President John Dramani Mahama has “nothing” to offer Ghanaians again in his decision to contest the presidency in 2020.
He called on Mr Mahama to “go and sleep” after calming that his tenure as president wasn’t the best.
“He [John Mahama] said he wants to be president again. What is he coming to do for the people again? He had his chance and couldn’t use it to change things,” the former National Security advisor said.
Former President John Mahama has declared his interest to contest the 2020 elections on the ticket of the main opposition National Democratic Congress [NDC].
Mr Mahama who had earlier been coy about his interest for the slot noted that he has reflected on the numerous calls on him to contest and will not disappoint his supporters.
But many have called on him to reconsider his decision to contest the NDC flagbearership in November.
Academic and founder of AUCC, Kojo Yankah recently urged the former President to accept his current statesmanship status and leave the race.
Speaking on NEAT FM’s morning show dubbed ‘Ghana Montie’, Brigadier General Nunoo Mensah said Mr Mahama was rejected by Ghanaians during the 2016 elections because he failed – hence, his comeback is unnecessary.
According to him, “Mahama should go to where he lost and ask the people if they are still interested in him and ready to vote for him. Staying in Accra thinking he is the favorite is a mistake. He failed that is why the people rejected him.”
“I don’t care who becomes president as long as the country is moving forward, I am okay,” he added.
