Mahama hasn't gotten over the whippings I gave him in 2016 and 2020 yet – Akufo-Addo

 


President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo said that former President John Dramani Mahama still feels bad about losing to him twice in the general elections. 

He said that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate for president in 2020 is still hurting from losing in 2016 and 2020. 

President Akufo-Addo said during his two-day tour of the Volta Region that Mr. Mahama still can't believe he beat him twice. 

Akufo-Addo says that Mahama's harsh comments about him and his government are because he won't accept the fact that he lost the election. 

"Mr. Mahama still hasn't figured out how he lost twice to the man he said could never be president of Ghana. I think every night when he goes to bed, he's confused about the man who has not only come back but also beaten him badly twice. 

"We won by a huge margin in 2016, and we'll do it again in 2020. "He has never won as many votes in Ghana as I have, and he knows it," Akufo-Addo said in an interview on Stone City FM in Ho a few days ago. 

He thinks that criticizing his government was a way for Mahama and his supporters to discredit the progress his government kept making even though there were problems. 

"He knows that we've made a lot of progress and done a lot of good things, and that he and his supporters have to belittle that, go out of their way, and make fun of everything we've done," he said. 

In the 2012 elections, Mahama beat Akufo-Addo, and he also won a petition that Akufo-Addo filed after the election. In 2016, he didn't get re-elected, so Akufo-Addo got his first term in office. 

In 2020, both at the polls and in court, Mahama lost again to Akufo-Addo. His petition was turned down by the court unanimously.
