Former National Security Advisor Brigadier (rtd) Joseph Nunoo-Mensah has accused former President John Dramani Mahama of distancing himself from experienced and principled statesmen during his tenure as president.
According to the retired army officer Mahama virtually clearing the house of experienced and competent people was an act of Mahama cutting his nose to spite his face.
“President Mills may he rest in peace, as a politician you must come to power with a certain mindset, Nkrumah and Mills were different. Mills is like a pastor, we sit to have a chat. Mills never failed because he had people with brains around him but Mahama came and he pushed them all away and brought the young ones, kids don’t play football,” he told Samuel Eshun in an interview on the Happy Morning Show (HMS).
He however revealed that he is not resentful because he was shelved. “Never, I’m never embittered, because I have been sacked several times but I’m never bitterer because I put Ghana first. I have to be concern about how the country is being ruled.”
