Former National Security Advisor Brigadier (rtd) Joseph Nunoo-Mensah has criticised former President John Dramani Mahama for surrounding himself with clueless and inexperienced people while in government.
According to the retired army officer, the decision by Mr. Mahama to virtually ‘clear’ a house of experienced and competent people late President Mills left behind contributed largely to the failure of his government.
Speaking in an interview with Happy FM monitored by ABC News , Mr. Nunoo-Mensah likened late President Mills to a pastor who, like Kwame Nkrumah, had a positive mindset for the country.
“President Mills, may he rest in peace, as a politician you must come to power with a certain mindset, Nkrumah and Mills were different. Mills is like a pastor, we sit to have a chat. Mills never failed because he had people with brains around him but Mahama came and he pushed them all away and brought the young ones, kids don’t play football,” he averred.
