Did John Mahama teach Nana Addo what Patriotism is all about? - Brogya Gyamfi
Patriotism is about committing to the
larger/collective national interest and benefit
for citizens without considering other
political/enthnic/religious/self interest. In
simple terms, Patriotism is about the show of
unalloyed National Loyalty.

Nana Addo refused to recognise John Mahama as
President because of the former’s election
petition challenging the 2012 elections even
though the constitution was clear on what needed
to be done in a situation like that. Nana Addo
failed to rise up to the status of acting as a
patriotic Ghanaian by refusing to attend even
National events during the period.

Again, when then President Mahama called on all
citizens including Political Parties, Religious
Organisations, Civil Society Organizations, etc.,
to help contribute to a National Economic
Discourse, Nana Addo did not only boycott – he
also encouraged his party members and Members of
Parliament not to attend. Nana Addo on that
occasion failed to portray any act of PATRIOTISM
on what has come to be known as the Senkyi Forum.

FastForward ?????

President Nana Addo invites 3 Former Presidents
including John Mahama to help him through a
discussion on some decisions he wants to take as
President (according to the Presidency). Former
President John Mahama rises to the occasion to
teach President Nana Addo what PATRIOTISM means in
its real sense. Without a blink, he pays heed to
the call and engages in what the Presidency
describes as FRANK and OPEN discussion.

Ironically, Candidate Nana Addo in a response to
President Mahama during the 2016 electioneering
campaign retorted “Mahama cannot teach me any
lesson in PATRIOTISM”

Now the question is: Has John Mahama taught Nana
Addo any lesson in PATRIOTISM?
