Is President Mahama The Worst President We Have Ever Had? Some People Seriously Think So

John Mahama

 

I was reading a young lady’s blog today. Her name is Nana Ama and she wrote about why President Mahama just may go down as the worst leader ever. I was intrigued although there’s nothing about her rant that is a lie. We all know the facts and we have all vented in many ways but let me ask you, do you think/feel the same?

If you are old enough to have seen several governments before this one, then you will have a more objective and acceptable view.

I personally haven’t seen too many but I have witnessed enough to form an opinion. I was born into the Rawlings administration and I remember that period for some intensive focus on agriculture which yielded results. If for nothing, our bellies were full!

Then came his former Excellency, John Agyekum Kuffour with his financial sector improvement. His government was accused of many corrupt practices as it is with every government but we saw him improve on many things too. Ghanaians nicknamed him the gentle giant.

Fast forward to Agya Atta Mills who we lost to the cold hands of death. The ‘Asumdwe Hene’ did his best for Ghanaians and although we didn’t grow as fast as we wanted to, we at least managed sustenance.

Then ‘Fine Boy’ Mahama came. I cannot even talk his matter. Eiii! We had hopes, so many. Because he had been in the Atta Mills government and so Ghanaians were so sure he would lead us to some semblance of greatness. But months turned into years and the harsh truth didn’t just hit home, it dug deep into our pockets and ravaged our very standard of living—eroding decent livelihoods to a bare minimum. We were not living the dream but we were surviving. If you have lived life before though, you will know survival is not LIFE!

The slowdown was blamed on frozen national accounts during the high court hearing of the election petition. Well, those accounts were unfrozen a long time ago. But what have we witnessed? An incompetence so palpable the IMF has been summoned to step in. ‘’Step in mighty IMF and save these clueless Ghanaians from perishing’’

The question arises, what are we perishing from? From self-inflicted economic woes. From our very own selfishness that drove us to make rationally inexplicable decisions that have brought the Ghanaian economy down on its knees to an all-time low.

It would make the situation more bearable if we actually saw the government working in favour of the people.

All governments have scandals but the scandals of this present government have been so elementary and jarring that even children can see the incompetence. Why does it continually seem like the government knows all the problems but will rather dilly dally and go through processes that further cause financial loss to the country only to throw the results aside and do nothing!

GYEEDA, SADA are only but a few scandals. What happened to the Akonfem farming that chopped Ghana’s millions? I believe those fowls are still flying around in Burkina…Pathetic!

Recently, we found ourselves hit with the CHRAJ scandal. Who will save Ghana? Who will save Ghana? Because our national coffers seem to have turned into a ‘free chop’ Bonanza for most in government. Ghana is bleeding! We are out there asking for all forms of aid just so people in government can squander on frivolities. The whole world watched us make a fool of ourselves at the world cup. But guess what? The officials who run the world cup events are still at post. Nothing has been done to them!

The CHRAJ boss is still shamelessly and impudently at post. What does government do when these things happen? They set up a committee. Yes my friend, you heard me! Government cannot do anything about any situation with a thousand facts seen by the entire world except to set up a committee! Pay several more people to sit and discuss what we all know—digging deeper in our wounds.

Why does the President allow this? Is it because he is an active participant in this rot? The government drags issues so long they expect us to forget but let me tell you something, I do not forget, many Ghanaians have not forgotten. We have just gotten tired of complaining. And besides, the scandals are too many to even complain. We have been shocked into silence.

Is this government the worse government you have witnessed? Given their clueless and heartless approach to so many economic scandals? I do not know but I know one thing for sure, we are waiting for the next election very patiently. That is when we will come out and show the world that we know everything and we will exercise our rights accordingly…

Long live Ghana.

  1. From ’77, I think I have seen quite a bit, and one might just as well agree with your caption. Next election you say? Remember majority of the voters are our rural folks and they are tilted towards this government. Your vote is 1, mine is 1! And the folks who are the majority cannot read this grammar.

    1. By their names y3 shall know them. What were you trying to say? You must be thinking through your butt for typing this mess. You Ndc folks along with your aids predident are dummies anyways.

      1. Naa Dromo, Yes there is a Setor as part of my name. And unlike some empty headed, uncultured, uncivilized, vulgar barrels that a nation can surely not be build on and with, I did not have to think at all before typing. You are just not smart enough it took you so long to figure it out, and I bet you still do not understand. The Setor attached to my name does not make me an Ewe; and even at that, the are a lot of smart Ewes who are not tribal. I chose not to waste my time on you any further!

        1. Hey setor, sector, or whatever your name is please don’t come here trying to twist facts just to suit your volta clan. Your ewe tribe is known to be the most notorious and tribalistic of all the tribes in our great nation. Everything about your tribe is so unGhanaian and it just creeps the hell out of me. Don’t reply!

          1. Another empty unit! Did you read that the Setor attached to my name does not make me an Ewe? If you hate Ewes, That’s your problem! Knucklehead!

  2. Mahama has really been one big disappointment. A mistake I hope we never make again as a country.The person who coined the phrase “the end justifies the means” doesn’t know Mahama is taking Ghana straight to hell at the end

    1. I pray we don’t all go to hell because of him. Hahaha. Let’s still hope for a bit of change in his tactics. We cannot live like this.

  3. The worst thing ever to happen to Ghana is the volta region, a region and it’s people who always vote along ethnic lines and not based on rational and informed choices. Unfortunately we have their people occupying sensitive-critical positions in our government and i’m afraid to say that their favourite party shall be victorious again come 2016 thanks to their blind-obedience and herd mentality.

    1. Thank you and high five on your comment. They voted for NDC because Rawlings the founder of that party is an ewe. Who discriminate more than Ewes? Yet they have the guts to bring Akans down, let NPP bring an Ewe candidate and you will witness the love akans and ga’s would show that man. I strongly cant stand ewes on their discrimination behavior. Ewes were simply not born to love period.

      1. I agree with you on this. They hates akans so much . Funny thing is they also suffering in this hardship. Am sure next election they will all reason through their brain and not their stinky ignorant behaviors.

          1. dr miyagi. stop playing peace advocate in every argument because we’re all entitled to our opinions. fake dr.

          2. Bruv, I urge you to let sleepy dog lie, otherwise the miscreants will roast you for standing up for the truth. If people want to remain ignorant, why bother?

          3. Hahahahaaa….. and a fake hydro. What kind of hydro are you? Hydrogen, hydroelectric, hydrochloride, hydrocarbon or hydroxide?

          4. S T U P I D ! ! ! check the dr’s comment: (Fake Dr.? So your here to fight “pathetic”) he doesn’t seem to know the difference between your and you’re. How about ending a sentence with a full stop? Besides, what do you really know about all the types of hydropwer energy listed in your comment?

          5. Stop being an a..ss for this stu….pid boy. I thought you were sensible but you just proved to be a fool. You are backing him with insults.

          6. Say what? are you calling me a fool? Adwoa serwaa, read the comments before you start insulting people.

          7. Huh? i hope you’re not calling me a fool. Can you point out where in my reply to HYDRO did I insult him?

          8. Why are you so defensive when it comes to tribal comments? Are you an angona ni or what? Well who the cup fits let them wear it. You people are the worse that happens to Ghana anyways. Allow people to insult ewes because they foolish because you ewes are scared of the truth. Naa am behind you my sister.

          9. I find it difficult to comprehend why is it that, whenever you are commenting on any article for some reason, all sort of fakes names pops up. You are one funny character!!

          10. Idio.t does it look like am the only one against your rubbish talks? Who labeled me as a coward on GC? It better not be you because i can handle you alone. Hydro started before i did. You should know me by now, i comment and insult you whenever i feel like. Is not something that am scared to do it alone. By the way stop licking miyagi’s as–s unless you want to tell us you a fag.

          11. I used to treat you with kids gloves but your incessant attacks have become too much. I am not going to laugh anymore. You are officially declared an enemy and I’ll treat you as such. Now bring it on.

          12. You are so weak don’t let anything a woman say or type gets to you. As a real man you ignore and pretend like nothing happened. You typing displays a lot of weakness on a social media. If we all reply to others how can we catch the fun in here? You want to know the little truth about you? You like arguing, you can’t be always right when it comes to discussions I have been reading through your comments and will be honest with you, allow other ones to say whatever is on their mind. If you disagree vote them down and move on. Is like you always opening a room for ladies to get to you. GC is a place of freedom of ideas so make that happen from this minute. thank you issah

          13. Issah, so you’ve decided to join the troll bandwagon right? What a hypocrite you are. So you have the time to type this long ass comment but didn’t have the time to read through the comments before passing judgment? Anyway, I’ve never attacked anyone for expressing their opinion. And for the record, I don’t argue with people here. It’s just unfortunate that some people has made it their business to get on my case all the time by replying to my comments even if it has nothing to do with them. Especially Bernice. That Bernice girl has been on my case for quite a long time now, attacking me here and there and I’ve been very lenient. But her cup is full. I have had enough of her bull crap!!

          14. I don’t think Isaiah means any harm, he’s right take his words and leave these girls alone. He’s rather giving you a piece if an advice to stay off women. Please accept this and let sleeping dogs lie. Am sure any sensible masculine will give you such an advice. Ignore them when the type shyuuts to you. The moment you responds gives room for haters. I rest my case

          16. I can’t remember mentioning your name but you feel the need to reply to my comment. If you are seeking my attention again then I’m sorry, I am not going to give you any. Proceed to the next person.

          17. Isn’t it amazing that you created fake names to backup your comments and turn around to make it look like other people really appreciate your comments? Make yourself happy.

          18. And i also like how my insults always gets to your funny looking head daily. You are one slow as..s man in here. Do i get bothered if billions of people in here supports you? I thought you were wise enough. At least i’ve always been like this towards you so why labeled me with some unknown identity? couple of months ago on the castro article, you accused me of being Juicenet. wow King kweku do me a favor by observing clearly before you type rubbish. I am me my self and I. Will forever be like this so take time and read through my lines. Gb3k3 bulorrrr

          19. He’s very annoying so have to place him where he belongs. if he behaves will let him be. for now i will also deal with him in here and he will go and cry to his mama or gc staffs.

  4. Without a reasonable doubt, President Mahama’s performance has been abysmal so far. His government is bedevil by corrupt officials with no sense of direction. Unfortunately, Ghana is heading straight to the slaughter house.

  5. If my comment is not worth publishing I guest I’ll not waste my time to read your articles. I know GC has quite a few writers, and, I want to know who the writer of this article is so that I would stop reading or commenting on his/her article. It makes no sense to write a comment that contains no insult and yet not published.

    1. Hello Guest, wish you had a specific name. Nonetheless, I do not remember deleting your comment. And yes, I wrote this article. I have not seen any comment from you. Perhaps one of my colleagues was online when you commented and found it inappropriate. I cannot be sure. It would be more certain if you comment again and if it truly isn’t overly offensive, nobody will delete it.

      1. It was actually me. My name changed to “Guest” because I deleted the comment you’ve replied to. Anyway, the comment posted above with my disqus account is the one that was initially deleted and for some reason someone brought it back again. Thanks!

          1. Dear GC Staff, I just want you to know that, I’ve had enough of the insult on my person. Some unknown entities on GC has made it their job to insult me for no apparent reason and I have been very considerate with my reply to them but, my calm posture is gradually turning into anguish. It is only a matter of time that I’d snap. Nobody admonishes them as they’re having a field day insulting me. When I insult them back that’s when the hypocrites would come out and cry foul. Am fast losing my cool. I don’t want you or Chris to get involved when this place become a war zone. Thanks!!

          3. There you go again, you just displayed your weakness. Your balls are not strong enough to be in here. Am sure you typed this after wiping your tears. Sorryooo
