Mahama is visionless, money-conscious - Ambassador Osei

Ghana’s Special Envoy to the United Arab Emirates Ambassador Daniel Osei has said his former boss John Mahama only thinks about about ‘money, money’ and has no plan of moving this country to a greater level

In an interview monitored by on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa FM, Ambassador Osei who was appointed by Mahama to serve as Ambassador revealed that ex-President Mahama was not serious about The governance of Ghana.

According to him, Mahama was rather chasing money.

He revealed how he secured a deal for Ghana’s Abu Dhabi embassy to be constructed for free but when “I informed Mr Mahama about it and told him how important it will be for Ghana to have that embassy to foster strong relationship with the gulf country, but shockingly he told me that we’ll build the embassy ourself when we come back to power in 2017, and that we don’t need their help”. Ambassador Osei said.

“I was sad and it shows clearly that, that was not his focus, his focus was not aspiring for greatness for the country. All Mahama knows is money, money, money. Let’s not elect him to lead the NDC again, we have better alternatives, leaders who are visionaries.” He wrote.

“They did everything to stop me but I had to fight them and there’s an email trail of my conversations to come to Ghana, I could have just sat quietly somewhere but I came down to Ghana and contributed my quota toward pushing the party. I came down several months before the elections to campaign and in any constituency that I worked we won. So it’s not about the person.

He added: “When I was given the position and I went to UAE, I went there with the intention to serve my country and I did my best. Many countries don’t have embassies at Abu Dhabi so I began moves to ensure that Ghana establishes an Embassy at Abu Dhabi and also help them establish one in Ghana. I met with the Emirate Foreign Affairs representative in Dubai and set up a meeting in Abu Dhabi and they agreed to help us set up an embassy and also help us with funding to do it.” He added.
