Mahama declared, “We are supposed to be the black star of Africa; today, that black star has fallen on the ground,” during a call to action. However, I promise you that the black star will rise once more.
Former President John Dramani Mahama has conveyed his grave concern regarding the suffering Ghanaians are currently going through under the Akufo-Addo administration.
He acknowledged the difficulties but urged the populace to hold onto hope because God’s plan for Ghana is still being realized.
Speaking on New Year’s Eve to the Sanctuary of Wind and Fire Assemblies of God Church in Tamale, Mr. Mahama brought attention to the suffering of Ghanaians, some of whom were considering abstaining from the 2024 elections because of the ongoing challenges.
On Election Day, December 7, 2024, Mahama encouraged the electorate—particularly the disillusioned youth to take part in the democratic process by casting their ballots. He saw the current situation as a divinely-mandated test of faith.
“While our country, Ghana, is going through a crisis, God has not abandoned us”, the said, adding: “Even in the face of hardship, we must not give up.”
Thinking back to Ghana’s heyday as the Black Star of Africa, Mr. Mahama expressed hope that the country would rise once more. He gave the congregation assurance that the black star, a representation of Ghana’s tenacity, would rise again in spite of the present difficulties.
