US-based legal practitioner, Professor Kwaku Asare has advised John Mahama to rescind his decision to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) again.
The former president over the weekend hinted of his intention via Facebook to become the flagbearer of the largest opposition party after a massive defeat in 2016.
“To you the teeming supporters and sympathisers calling and requesting me to declare my intentions for the future, I wish to assure you today, that as a servant-leader, I have listened to your calls and reflected,” Mahama said Saturday in a statement posted to his official Facebook account.
“I will not disappoint you even as we await the publication of the party’s guidelines for selecting a new leader,” Mahama said.
Reacting to the development, Prof. Asare said Mahama has gone through the structures of the political ladder hence his experience will be more beneficial as a statesman.
“I firmly believe that people should be free to run for any office. However, if ex President John Dramani Mahama asked me for advice on whether to run for office in 2020, I will urge him not to on grounds that he has already served the country in various capacities.
“They include Member of Parliament (MP), Minister, Vice President and President and he should now use his cumulative knowledge and experience to write a book and to serve as a statesman.
“Please note that this is free, unsolicited and non-professional advice that is not binding on the ex President or anyone else,” Prof. Asare said in a Facebook post. –starrfmonline.com
