President John Dramani Mahama is a tolerant man, popular highlife musician Kwabena Kwabena has said.
The Aso singer, who has publicly declared his support for opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo ahead of elections later in 2016 – having joined his unsuccessful campaigns to be president of Ghana in 2008 and 2012 – said these on Accra100.5FM’s Ayekoo Ayekoo programme on Wednesday June 29, 2016.
“I would say he is tolerant,” Kwabena Kwabena said, when asked by host Nana Romeo of the one endearing attribute of Mr Mahama.
Further, he stated: “In terms of development he’s played his part, no one can say he’s done nothing; that would not be fair. He’s played his part.”
He was particularly grateful to President Mahama for the construction of the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange, saying it had considerably eased the traffic situation in the capital and hoped that governments to come and the current administration would do their best to address the “many problems” the country faces.
The musician is the poster boy of the Save-A-Life campaign, a move to raise funds for surgery for children suffering from ‘hole-in-heart’ condition.
