Enough Of The Blame Game, If You Cannot Do The Job, Step Aside – John Mahama Fires Akufo-Addo

Former President John Mahama has sent a message to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, that if he cannot do the work, there is no shame in it, he should quietly move aside for the National Democratic Party (NDC) to show him how it is done.

The former President noted that the sitting president is very good at point fingers for the failings of his administration usually naming the opposition as reason for the hardship in the country but never taking any responsibility himself.

Mahama used the opportunity given him at the 40th Anniversary commemoration of the 31st December Revolution in Accra on Friday, to tell Akufo-Addo to step down and let those who can do the work take over if he is going to continue on his path of pointing fingers.

“Leadership is about responsibility. It is only a poor leader who shirks responsibilities and shift blames. We had a power crisis– dumsor in this country– because of a lack of investment in generation for many years, and so we were consuming more power than we generated. That was the situation I met, and yet I did not say it is not my fault. I went to Parliament, took responsibility for it and promised to fix it, which we did.”

“Today somebody [President Akufo-Addo] claims he inherited a weak economy, which he hasn’t been responsible for, 5 years on. It’s always about Mahama and NDC. If he [Nana Akufo-Addo] can not do the job, he should give way for the NDC to do it for you.”
