John Dramani Mahama has reportedly reached the end of his political career as a president, according to Charles Owusu, a former head of the Forestry Commission’s monitoring unit.

Charles Owusu strongly predicted that Mahama will lose the presidency in the next elections despite acknowledging his respect for Mahama’s prior record of leadership and individual accomplishments.

On May 5, 2023, he acknowledged John Mahama’s earlier expertise in running the country but adamantly emphasised that his prospects of winning the president again were small to none. He was speaking during a panel discussion on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo at the time.

“I am declaring it today: John Dramani Mahama, the leader of the NDC, has finished his role as president. He has previously led the country, so you see, I have a lot of respect for him.Without a doubt, he will prevail in their primary, yet he is ineligible to be elected president.

“He cannot be president; I do not despise him, but today is May 5; note this; I am referring to John Dramani Mahama…He is a gentleman, and when you look back on his life over the past thirty years, the honour that God has bestowed upon him in politics, the ability he has demonstrated to handle the economy, and his own accomplishments, I have the utmost regard for him. However, I believe that he has completed his duties as president. It won’t happen for me to run for president once more, he remarked.

From 2012 until 2016, Mahama presided over Ghana as president; nevertheless, he was defeated by Akufo-Addo in the 2016 election. In the 2020 election, he again attempted to unseat Akufo-Addo but was unsuccessful.

On May 13, 2023, the NDC is anticipated to hold its primaries, and Mahama has voiced confidence that he can win both them and the general elections of 2024.
