The former President of Ghana who remains the leader and flagbearer of the largest opposition party, National Democratic Congress(NDC), John Dramani Mahama has shard his message on his social media platform as we celebrate Africa’s Day today, May 23, 2020.
The former gentleman of the land has been in the news after he was alleged to have a hand in the death of his predecessor, the late John Evans Attah Mills as alleged by the loudmouth Bono Regional Chairman of their rivalry party, NPP.
The case has been handed over to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of The Ghana police Service for a probe.
Today, as we celebrate Africa’s Day, the former president shares his experience on the occasion, as he witnessed the 50th anniversary of the continental union.
John Maham poured out his words:
“Nine years ago, I joined my colleague Heads of State in Addis Ababa to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our Continental Union, the African Union.
We adopted #Agenda2063 as our blue print for transforming our continent into a future significant global partner.
Today across our continent, as we celebrate #AfricaDay, we must dedicate ourselves as a people and governments towards realising the objectives of #Agenda2063 and building #TheAfricaWeWant.
COVID-19 has exposed the structural weaknesses of our economic paradigm as exporters of primary goods and importers of finished products.
But with innovative leadership and a belief in especially our enterprising and dynamic young people, we can and we should turn the wheels of the African Economy back on track.
Happy AU Day.
