Retired COP Questions Mahama’s Call for Honeymoon Period

Retired Commissioner of Police (COP), George Alex Mensah, expressed skepticism about former President John Mahama’s call for a grace period or “honeymoon” if he assumes the presidency following the December 7 general elections. According to COP Mensah, this request indicates a lack of concrete policies to address the nation’s economic challenges.

In an interview with JoyNews’ Nana Boakye Yiadom, COP Mensah, who is vying for the Bekwai constituency parliamentary seat on the NPP ticket, questioned Mr. Mahama’s intentions behind seeking a grace period. He argued that the call for a ‘honeymoon’ reflects a lack of commitment to advancing the country’s development and suggested that it signifies a lack of substantive policies and readiness on Mr. Mahama’s part.

“We are not ready for a honeymoon, we are not ready. The country is not ready for a honeymoon. We are moving on,” asserted COP Mensah, emphasizing that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer for the 2024 general elections is not prepared to restore the country to its previous state.

COP Mensah urged Ghanaians to grant the ruling New Patriotic Party the opportunity to continue the country’s development, warning that reverting to previous leadership could lead to a profound setback. This comes in response to Mr. Mahama’s plea for a grace period if the NDC were to regain power, emphasizing the importance of time to revive the economy before addressing specific demands from trade and labour groups.
