I'll return to power in 2020 - John Mahama declares - Politics

Former President of the Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has said being a leader is a difficult job.

As President, I was faced with many difficult decision points, but if those decisions were not taken at the time, the results would have been dire for the nation. Ghana being the fastest growing economy was a result of some of those decisions’‘, he said in New York.

He was speaking as a special guest of the New York Ministers Conference of the Assemblies of God Church, where he talked to the church, pastors and the 2018 class of newly ordained pastors.

He added, “As a leader, you must focus on how to be a servant – leader.”It is only then that when you are faced with difficult decisions as a leader , you will err on the side of what will propel your nation, your church or your institution forward“,

Throughout my political life”, “I have enjoyed strength from the church and I thank Rev. Ernest Agyei who brought me to christ. The church has been supportive all through, especially after my electoral loss in 2016.

He added in his speech to the attendees of the conference that “African economies are growing, IT innovation by young Africans is amazing and i can say that indeed Africa is rising.”

The world media may not focus on that, but we as Africans must tell our story as we go around the globe“.

Thank you very much for the invitation to share some thoughts and for the recognition. i recall our time in Missouri during the centennial celebration of the Assemblies of God in 2014. Thank you and i have enjoyed tonight just as I did then“, he concluded.
