Outgoing President of the Republic of Ghana was this morning sacked from the ECOWAS Heads of State summit in Abuja, Nigeria today after he was unanimously deemed unfit to provide any meaningful contribution to the summit.
It has been reported Mr. Mahama has been crying ever since he arrived at Abuja yesterday over his humiliating defeat to Ghana’s opposition leader Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
President John Mahama joined his colleague ECOWAS leaders for a Heads of State summit in Abuja.
The West African leaders are expected to use the three-day meeting to convince defeated Gambian President Yahya Jammeh once more to relinquish power after several attempts by four leaders from Anglophone countries to persuade him on the matter failed.
Jammeh’s ruling party challenged his defeat in a December 1 election at the Supreme Court on Tuesday as West African leaders failed to reach a deal that would see him accept the result and end a deepening political crisis.
Soldiers also seized the headquarters of the national elections commission and sealed it off just hours before the mediation delegation representing regional bloc ECOWAS touched down in the tiny riverside nation.
This may be the last summit President Mahama is attending as he prepares to handover power to President-elect, Nana Akufo-Addo on January 7,2017
