Ghana’s main opposition leader John Mahama has said he has agreed in principle to meet the president Nana Akufo-Addo over current happenings in the West African country.
A cousin of the president and a political strategist Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko brokered the deal after meeting with the former flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at his residence on Tuesday 21 December 2021.
In a Facebook post, Mahama said they discussed several issues including the “desire of Ghanaians to see the two major political parties working together for the interest of the nation.”
Below is Mahama’s post on Facebook:
