I’m not irresponsible to ask supporters to pick up arms in protest – Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama says no life is worth being lost because of power.

According to the 2020 Presidential Candidate of the NDC, it would have been irresponsible to ask people to go on the streets or pick up arms in protest because of the disputed 2020 elections in which 8 Ghanaians were killed.

“It would be irresponsible to do that. For the sake of peace for our nation, we decided to follow the constitutional route and go to court” he explained in an interview on Akina FM in Techiman.

Meanwhile, he said he cannot change his calm and welcoming nature even in the most testing of circumstances.

According to him, his family and religious upbringing do not permit him to depart from the kind of person he is, explaining that he was in the church before he entered politics.

“We all have our beliefs and we all have different upbringings. I was not raised to be a ruffian. I was raised to be polite, gentle and civil to every human being. To be sensitive to people irrespective of who you are. That’s how I was raised” he explained.

He also added, “I can’t change that character and say I am going to be macho, ruffian or fight.”

Mr. Mahama is on the second phase of his tour to thank Ghanaians.

The other regions to be visited by Mr. Mahama in the second phase of the tour are the Bono, Ahafo, Western North, and Ashanti regions.
