Mahama I defeated can’t be my successor –Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has restated his strong opposition to the idea of handing over the presidency to his predecessor, Mr John Dramani Mahama.
In a speech to the chiefs and people of Wa, Upper West Region, President Akufo-Addo thanked them for their support during his presidency and outlined his succession plans.

Addressing the Paramount Chief of the Waala Traditional Area, Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV, President Akufo-Addo announced his intention to return with the New Patriotic Party’s flagbearer, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, as his successor.  He made it clear that he would not pass power to John Dramani Mahama, whom he defeated and ousted from office in 2016.

The President also reiterated his dedication to ensuring peace before, during, and after the December 7 elections, emphasizing the importance of cooperation and support in upholding the country’s reputation as a leader in democratic governance in Africa.


There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism. Thank you.
