The two Johns’ in Ghana’s political history, displayed a true Africanism and patriotism, when spotted at the parade ground in a beautifully made African shirt with a customized African fabric, made specially for this years’ Independence celebration.
Earlier in a tweet, the former President John Dramani Mahama called on Ghanaians to ensure that the country becomes an “even better” place in the next 60 years.
Former President writes… “I salute all Ghanaians. Let’s dedicate ourselves, on this occasion, to make the next 60 years even better.”
