Former President John Dramani Mahama, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential candidate, has received a set of requests for forgiveness from nursing students in the Bono East Region.
Speaking to the audience during Mahama’s #BuildingGhana Tour of the Bono East Region, a nurse reading a petition on the group’s behalf acknowledged that they made a mistake by opposing the former president’s policies before the 2016 elections.
She said that the promises made by the New Patriotic Party (NPP), which is currently in power, had tricked them into voting for them even though they have proved to be false.
“Your Excellency we were presented with what seemed like a free virgin, only to be presented with ‘a born eight times over’.
“How naïve it was for us to place our trust in them despite warming that fall of our deaf years. Please accept our unreserved apology for not hiding your advice during the 2016 election, from the depth of our hearts, we sincerely apologise,” she said.
She added, “As stated in the Bible of John 20:23; Jesus Christ said if you forgive our sins, their sins would be forgiven and if you don’t forgive them, their sins would not be forgiven. Your Excellency, we seek forgiveness for our transgressions… we beg you; we did not do well, we are pleading with you”.
