However, Mr Mahama pointed out that “it is part of the learning process for all of us”.
For him, “if he [President Nana Akufo-Addo] is able to deliver on his promises, good; if he is not able too, the people would have learnt that not all that glitters is gold”.
Meanwhile, Mr Mahama has charged leaders to be accountable to citizens in order to build trust in public institutions.
He explained that citizens are entitled to know what public funds are used for. For him, this is one of the important ways to build confidence in public institutions of the country.
“Every month when I work, part of my salary is taken as tax, so as a citizen I want to be sure that whoever has been elected into government is going to be accountable on how he uses that money to improve my life,” he said.
He was of the view that leaders must be held accountable to the people that voted them into office.
