Speaking at the Sanctuary of Wind and Fire Assemblies of God Church in Tamale as part of New Year celebrations, Mahama emphasized the importance of citizens exercising their right to vote in the upcoming December 7, 2024 elections.
Mahama acknowledged the challenges the country is currently facing, noting that the crisis has led some youth to believe that all hope is lost, leading to the decision to boycott voting during elections.
He urged Ghanaians to remain resilient in the face of tribulations, emphasizing that the nation can overcome its difficulties.
Drawing inspiration from biblical references, Mahama highlighted that crises can be opportunities for learning and growth.
He cited the example of the Israelites' journey through the wilderness, emphasizing that challenges are part of the journey towards a better future.
“Sometimes, we go through tribulations, and that does not mean we should throw up our hands in despair.
We must continue to work hard to achieve the objectives we set for ourselves,” Mahama stated.
The NDC Flagbearer expressed his commitment, along with fellow party patriots, to work towards revitalizing the country as long as they remain in politics.
He acknowledged that the once-shining Black Star has faced challenges but assured Ghanaians that it would rise again.
Mahama pledged to contribute to making Ghana a better place than he found it.
As the 2024 elections approach, Mahama's message encourages citizens to stay engaged in the democratic process and play a role in shaping the future of the nation.
