There have been three individuals that have stood and won as presidents on the National Democratic Congress' ticket since Ghana has transitioned from military rule to democratic rule.
Jerry John Rawlings was the founder and leader of the National Democratic Congress Party who has transitioned the country from military rule to a democratic civilian rule. He was followed by John Evans Atta Mills and John Dramani Mahama as presidents who stood and won on the National Democratic Congress Party's ticket, although not consecutively.
On the New Patriotic Party's ticket, we have John Agyekum Kuffuor and Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo as presidents. It seems that in terms of presidency under the democratic rule of Ghana, the National Democratic Congress Party has produced more presidents than the New Patriotic Party. It sounds normal that the New Patriotic Party would love to match up with the National Democratic Congress in terms of presidency and would therefore call on the need to 'break the eight '.
A debate has popped up online on the facebook page of GhanaWeb on an alleged comment made by the president of Ghana.
The comment has indicated that the administration of John Evans Atta Mills at the time that John Dramani Mahama was his vice president took Ghana back several years. This has caused mixed reactions among Netizens. Below is the post on the Facebook page of Ghanaweb.
According to the post, the New Patriotic Party government is bent on their agenda to break the eight year presidential reign of political parties in Ghana, and that might have necessitated such a comment from the president of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo.
Gideon Hey, a facebook user has challenged the comment of the president stating that the late president of Ghana, John Evans Atta Mills is better than the New Patriotic Party government.
Okyerekyereni King has called upon the president to allow the late president, John Evan's Atta Mills to rest in peace. He believes that Atta Mills must be left out of such political tussles once he is no more.
However, other citizens seem to agree with the comment of the president and this has caused mixed reactions.
Martin Junior has agreed to the assertion of the president, so has George Adenta.
What do you think about these reactions?
