Mahama has still not recovered from the whipping I gave him in 2016 and 2020 – Akufo-Addo

According to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, John Dramani Mahama is still hurt from his two defeats by him in the general elections.

He claimed that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate for the 2020 general elections is still in shock over the losses in 2016 and 2020.

President Akufo-Addo stated during his two-day tour of the Volta Region that Mr. Mahama still finds it hard to believe he defeated him twice.

Akufo-Addo claims that Mahama’s critical remarks about him and his government are the result of his refusal to accept his electoral defeats.

“Mr. Mahama still has not been able to assimilate his defeat twice to the man who he had said could never come to power in Ghana and I think every night when he goes to bed, he is confused about the man who has not just come back but given him a good whipping on two separate occasions.

“We won the landslide in 2016 and again decisive margin in 2020. He has never got the figures that I have got in elections in Ghana, he knows” Akufo-Addo said in an interview on Ho-based Stone City FM days ago.

He maintains that Mahama and his followers used criticism of his government as a means of disparaging the advancements his government continued to accomplish in spite of the difficulties it faced.

“He knows that considerable progress and successes have been made and that it is vital for him and his supporters to discredit that effort, to go out of their way, and to poo-poo all that we have done,” the source continued.

In the 2012 elections, Mahama defeated Akufo-Addo and also prevailed in a petition that Akufo-Addo filed following the result. He failed to gain reelection in 2016, which led to Akufo-Addo winning the presidency for the first time.

Mahama lost to Akufo-Addo in the 2020 election and in court, where his petition was unanimously rejected.
