Ghanaians go to the polls on the 7th December of every four years to give the governance mandate to a political party. Two years ago, Ghanaians voted the Akufo Addo led government into office for their second term and as 7th December passes again, most people including Ex President Mahama have reflected on the happenings during this last election.
In his reflection speech on the 2020 general elections, John Mahama spoke about the brutalities and the breach of law by law enforcement agencies which led to loss of lives and left several innocent others severely injured in their bid to ensure that rule of law prevailed. He also recounted the sorry state of this country in the last six years since this current government took over from him.

John Mahama said “Two years ago, for the first time in the history of our country, a President and Government unleashed armed men who brutally killed eight (8) innocent Ghanaians including a child during voting and results collation.”
“In the last six years, Ghanaians have witnessed a reckless government that has taken a wrecking ball to our economy, leaving it in a very sorry state, rivalling some of the worst economies in the world.”
“Our dear beloved nation, Ghana, is in a worst state today than at any time in the history of the 4th Republic — high levels of corruption, hardships due to bad economic and financial policies, a hungry and angry people, loss of investments, no credible reforms etc. But we are a strong people. We are creative and innovative. The Ghanaian does not give up and we won’t give up.”
