Former National Security Adviser, Brigadier Joseph Nunoo-Mensah (rtd) says his criticism of John Dramani Mahama as a failure in his tenure is not out bitterness but rather patriotism.
Nunoo Mensah says Mahama pushed away competent and principled statesmen from his government put there by his predecessor John Evans Atta Mills
According to him, Mahama should have surrounded himself with people with experience like Atta Mills did while serving as Commander -In-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces
But “Mahama came and he pushed them all away and brought the young ones, kids don’t play football”
He said “President Mills may he rest in peace, as a politician you must come to power with a certain mindset, Nkrumah and Mills were different. Mills is like a pastor, we sit to have a chat.
Mills never failed because he had people with brains around him but Mahama came and he pushed them all away and brought the young ones, kids don’t play football”.
The ex-Military man said his position is not influenced by his bitterness for John Dramni Maham but rather he was telling the bitter truth about John Mahama’s failure as a President.
“Never, I’m never embittered, because I have been sacked several times but I’m never bitter because I put Ghana first. I have to be concern about how the country is being ruled,” he told Accra-based Happy FM. monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
