According to the former President, while his main opponent, now President Akufo-Addo, was promising everything to secure votes, he as president, was restricted on the kind of promises he could make because he knew the strength of the economy.
He added: ” If he [President Nana Akufo-Addo] is able to deliver on his promises, good; if he is not able too, the people would have learnt that not all that glitters is gold”.
Mr. Mahama also Africans to show interest in how their government manages their resources.
“Every month when I work, part of my salary is taken as tax, so as a citizen I want to be sure that whoever has been elected into government is going to be accountable on how he uses that money to improve my life”.
Mr. Mahama is the first Ghanaian sitting president to have an lost election.
