Vice President Mahama: Monkey dey work, so make baboon wait small
Rawlings & Kufuor got 8yrs; Mills deserves 8 too – Veep
The Vice-President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama,
has appealed to Ghanaians to give the ruling
National Democratic Congress (NDC) another term in
office since previous governments of the Fourth
Republic had eight years each.
The first President of the Fourth Republic under
the current 1992 Constitution, Jerry John Rawlings
ruled from 1992 to 2000 whiles his successor J.A.

said during the launch of the Ghana Urban
Development Project in the Volta Region.
“If for nothing at all let us give him eight years

He added: “Recently, I was in Liberia for the
inauguration of President Johnson Sirleaf and the
slogan of her party was interesting and I’m sure
you all know of the slogan, ‘Monkey dey work
baboon dey chop’ but President Sirleaf’s own was
that ‘Monkey still dey work, so make baboon wait
small’ NDC is the monkey and we are still working

shall invite the baboon to come and have their

Mills (abom na ebekyere n'ado)! Literally translated; Mills' performance will dictate whether or not he deserves another term of office as the Head of State, which Ghana has had the misfortune of having right now.
