Presidency not for people who want to correct their mistakes – Sly Mensah jabs Mahama
An aspiring presidential candidate hopeful, Sylvester Mensah says the presidency is not an avenue or a place where you go to make mistakes and return to ask for another chance to make amends.
He told host of ‘Frontline’ Kwabena Agyapong on Rainbow Radio that, we cannot allow people to use the presidency as an avenue for try and error hence the need for delegates to vote massively for him to win the presidential election for the party in 2020.
Although he did not refer to anyone, his jabs appeared to be directed at former President John Dramani Mahama who is asking delegates to vote for him to come and amend his mistakes.
But Mr Mensah says the presidency cannot be used for such activities.
The former National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) boss said, “the presidency is not a place where you go and make mistakes, come back and ask to be given another chance to amend your mistakes. I think that, you must be ready and prepared to get to the seat of the presidency, and when you are there, there should be minimum errors but if you go there and commit errors and just come back to the public and say that I made mistakes, I am now coming back to correct my wrongs, it simply means you were not prepared then and even now you are not prepared.”
Delegates he noted have bought into his message and was optimistic of victory come February 23, 2019, when delegates go the polls to elect a presidential candidate.
He is also preaching for unity in order to help them win the polls massively.
Ghanaians he noted are extremely disappointed and encountering insecurity under the incompetent NPP administration led by President Akufo-Addo.
Meanwhile, he has described the number 4 ballot he picked as a miracle and prophetic.
He is looking forward to being the fourth president to have emerged from the NDC after former president Rawlings, the late John Evans Attack Mills and former President John Dramani Mahama.
