Mahama to Akufo-Addo: Only God determines one’s successor. Explore the political discourse on leadership transition.

John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has conveyed to President Akufo-Addo that the authority to determine his successor does not rest solely with him.

Speaking at a gathering in Damongo, located in the Savannah Region, where he initiated the construction of a new multipurpose Ndewura Jakpa palace, Mahama emphasized the importance of conducting a peaceful and credible election. He suggested that such an accomplishment would be Akufo-Addo’s most significant contribution.

Mahama’s comments come in response to Akufo-Addo’s statement that he cannot hand over power to someone he had previously removed from office.

“Before the election is held, I am going to come here and pay my proper goodbye to you and thank you for the cooperation that I received from you when I was president. God willing, when I come, I will come with the man who is going to be my successor. Wa Naa, you know that the man I removed from the seat, I cannot have him as my successor and as a traditional ruler, you understand what I am saying,“ President Akufo-Addo said.

In response, Mahama rebuffed the notion that Akufo-Addo has the power over the choice of his successor.“I wish to urge our president; this was my message to Nana Akufo-Addo, unfortunately, he has left, and he has left only our member of the council of state on the high table.

“I wish to urge our President that the best legacy he can leave this country, is to superintend over a peaceful, transparent and credible election.”

“I wish to remind him, that it is God who makes rulers and he can never ever be the one to choose his successor. It is God who will choose his successor,”
