Was It Necessary For John Mahama To Give Attention To Gabby Otchere Darko?

The former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama in a post on his official Facebook page on Wednesday 22 December revealed that he received Gabby Otchere Darko on Tuesday 21st December 2021.

Although the former President said the meeting was not about the ongoing E-Levy brouhaha, it was about both parties in parliament creating a condusive environment to work together.

The question is was the meeting really necessary?

It's good that Former President John Mahama gave President Nana Akufo-Addo attention through Gabby Otchere Darko on how to improve the work of government no matter how incensed his supporters may feel about such engagements.

The problem is Nana Akufo-Addo's communications don't reflect the assistance and co-operation he needs from John Mahama and the Minority to succeed as a President.

 He needs to check his communications with a deep appreciation of the era in which, we are now and the prevailing political and economic conditions. We aren't in the First and Second Republics. And, this isn't the pre-2020 Fourth Republic. When times change, you also change to meet new demands. 

In the ongoing Parliament brouhaha, John Mills could've handled this situation far better considering his posture and temperament. It is a very good step for President Akufo-Addo to engage John Mahama in the ongoing pandemonium in parliament of Ghana.

But, regardless of how this is handled, the truth is that not even can John Mahama and the NDC convince suffering citizens to accept this obnoxious E-Levy. Many people have expressed their displeasure with this bill.

If without E-Levy the economy shall collapse as people in government are saying, then why were Ghanaians told that the economy is resilient and excellent even after the Covid-19 impacts.

It's high time Ghana lay down structures for periodic meetings of former heads of states no matter the political affiliations to discuss about the way forward of this country.
