Former Vice President, Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, says he is grateful to former President John Mahama for the opportunity to serve in government.
Mr. Amissah Arthur, who served with John Mahama from 2012 when the latter had to take up the Presidency post following the demise of President Evans Atta-Mills, euologized Mahama for his commitment to the transformation of Ghana.
In a Facebook post on Saturday, January 7, ahead of the swearing in of President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo, Mr. Amissah-Arthur said, “it was brilliant working with him [Mahama].
Amissah-Arthur was until his service as Vice President, the Governor of the Bank of Ghana.
John Mahama and Kwesi Amissah Arthur were unanimously declared as the National Democratic Congress’ duo to contest for the December 2016 presidential elections.
They lost the elections to 3-time contestant and flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo and his running mate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumiah.
Mahama polled 44.4% of the valid votes cast, while Akufo-Addo polled 53.8% votes, representing a resounding victory for the NPP candidate, who set the record of being the first to unseat an incumbent President in a democratic election in Ghana’s history.
