This important point worth drumming home to every Ghanaian - When NDC lost power in 2000, Late Atta Mills, Ama Benyiwa Doe n co were all out saying that after sitting on the fence for some time, they have now realised their mistakes and that they would do things differently so Ghanaians should give them a second chance.

What did we see of Atta Mills- Mahama govt. Now Mahama has started singing the same song that Ghanaians shd give him a second chance. He would do things differently this time. But when they returned to office what did we see?

President failed to check or sanction his appointees whenever they go wrong, a typical example was Afriyie Ankrah who was was re-asigned as a minister after Brazil scandal, same as Dzifa Ativor' bus branding and many more. 

On 19th February, 2009, in his state of the nation address to parliament, then president Mills told parliament that his government was reviewing the decision to two executive presidential aircraft because Ghana cannot afford the expenditure at the time, late president Mills made this statement publicly.

Unknown to many Ghanaians, chairman of the Arm Forces Council, then Vice President John Mahama was frantically receiving delegations from Brazil and negotiating the acquisition of five jets, including the most expensive hanger for Ghana at that challenging times. When President Atta Mills appeared not to be aware of this dubious transaction, President Mills was shocked and suspicious so he set u a committee, comprising Hon. William Aboah, Mr. George Amoah and Brig. Gen. Allotey (Rtd.) to investigate then Vice President Mahama.

Former President Mahama supervised failure to pay black stars bonus on time so they threatened to boycott a world cup match and in the history of Ghana such failure has never happened before in such crucial tournament. This compelled Mahama's government to transport Four Million dollars in a private jet to Brazil to disburse to the team. Airlifting the money the subject of international media coverage and created huge embarrassment for the country.

In 2014, an investigation by Manasseh Azure Awuni revealed that millions of dollars allocated to SADA has been misappropriated and in the same 2014 the  Bureau of National Investigation uncovered GHC7.6 million rot at NSS. In 2013 this same Manasseh Azure Awuni investigated GYEEDA and uncovered massive corruption which led to the cancellation all GYEEDA contracts with the exception of Zoom Lion.

Ex president Mahama's government supervised 116 bus branding with the tune of GHC 3.6 million, if you remember this development provoked public outcry.

A revelation in June 2016 shows how former President Mahama received a for expedition vehicle which cost $60.000 from a Burkinabe contractor 
Dzibril Kanazoe, which provoked widespread of public anger. After President Mahama receiving, the vehicle the contractor won two contracts which cost GHC100 million. 

This is a man who wants to rule Ghana again after his infamous comment "Ghanaians have short memory" and I want to make it clear to former President how he wounded Ghana are still fresh in the memory of Ghanaian citizens.
