Today we focus on His Excellency President John Mahama.

The 4th President of Ghana under the fourth Republic, launched himself into the history books as the first President to have succeeded the president following the sudden death of his predecessor.

Mahama was an eloquent defender of the underprivileged, something that made him to be first elected to Ghana’s parliament in 1996, representing the Bole/Bamboi constituency. He was in April 1997 appointed the Assistant minister for Communications.

In November 1998, he had risen to become a substantive communications minister, a position he held until January 2001 when the NDC party handed over power to the newly elected NPP party.

During his tenure as Communications minister, John Dramani Mahama was also the chairman of the National Communications Authority. In this capacity, he played a major role in stabilizing the country’s telecommunications sector after its deregulation in 1997. He also served in the National Economic Communications authority, and was a founder member of the AIDS commission of Ghana.
