2016 Election: President Mahama will handover baton to Hassan Ayariga

The 2016 general election shall witness the retirement of the citizens of Gold Coast from contesting for the seat of Presidency.

The senior citizens of Gold Coast such as Nana Addo, Edward Mahama, Nana Konadu and Dr. Papa Nduom shall definitely bow out of active politics after 2016 considering their total irrelevance.

Since one have to be 40years to contest for the Presidency, the framers of the 1992 Constitution should have considered age 65 as the compulsory age that no one can contest for the Presidency. But APC under Dr. Hassan Ayariga Presidency shall amend the 1992 Constitution to address the weakness of Ghana's Constitution.

In the 21st century, citizens of Gold Coast don't have to compete with citizens of Ghana for the Presidency. Professor John Mills was an end to the political reigns of Gold Coast citizens at the seat of Ghana's Government.

Ghana Presidency has been restored to citizens of Ghana starting with JDM in 2012 and in 2016 power is transferring from JDM to a much relatively younger and vibrant Dr. Hassan Ayariga as the next President.

Ghana citizen JDM has done well in the infrastructural development and modernization of Ghana but what Ghanaians need now is all inclusiveness in governance and economic/financial empowerment. Looking at the opposition leaders, it is only Dr. Hassan Ayariga that has the message of all Inclusive governance concept, abolishment of winner takes it all and total economic transformation.

"The wisdom of Buhari to unite his party and rally behind him other opposition parties to form APC to unseat PDP is totally lacking in the senior most citizen of Gold Coast and Presidential Candidate of the elephants family".

Henceforth, the only alternative with quality and top-notch leadership to unite all Ghanaians under all inclusiveness concept and presides over peaceful Ama-Ghana is Dr. Hassan Ayariga, the next President after JDM comes 7th January, 2016.

I am urging the youth not to waste their votes on the older generation and citizens of Gold Coast because they don't fully comprehend the issues facing the younger generation and citizens of Ghana.
