Ghana’s former High Commissioner to Namibia and Botswana, Mr Harruna Attah, has said between the governing New Patriotic Party’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the main opposition National Democratic Congress' (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, the latter is a better candidate to lead the country as President.

The former ambassador, who has had the opportunity to work with both leaders, said he would vote for no other person than the NDC’s candidate.

Speaking on the KSM show, Mr Attah declared: “Of course, I will vote for John Mahama.”

He continued: “I believe he is a better candidate. I know the two main candidates [on the ballot] and in fairness to my conscience I think he [Mahama] is a better candidate.”

According to the former ambassador, in the last four years of the governing NPP’s reign, nothing significant has happened to make him rescind his decision to vote for the NDC.

He referred to the NDC Presidential Candidate as a good man urging Ghanaians to look at his previous record and the good work he did for the country.

Mr Attah called on “fair-minded” Ghanaians to vote for the NDC’s Presidential candidate.

He further noted that Mr Mahama “did a good job as President; we’re seeing it now.”

The former ambassador published a book titled “Awhene Pa Nkasa. Standing with JDM”, a few months ago.
