President Mahama has revealed that the use of social media has made him a better leader for the country.

President Mahama in a video uploaded on his official Facebook wall explained that because of the interaction and exchange of ideas he has with his virtual friends he has become a better leader.

“The ultimate objective of politics is human interaction for progress and development and Facebook offers us the opportunity to exchange views, ideas, and emotions in a direct manner. Because of this exchange, you know me better and I feel I know and understand you better too. You’ve made me a better leader and, in a sense, a better person. I hope that in turn, I have made you proud of our mother Ghana and ready to stand for what is right to bring hope to all.”

 

“I am and forever will be one of you. And this is why as your President, I fight hard each day to make sure our dear nation moves forward. There’s a tremendous lot yet to do but our progress is undeniable, especially when it comes to the development of social infrastructure which has created some decent number of jobs already. Everything I do, I do it with you in my heart, and with you, the good people of Ghana in mind. So, let us continue on this track. God bless you and many thanks to all of you for this one million milestone.”

President Mahama in the video thanked his over one million followers on Facebook saying “we are one million already on Facebook; our community, like a seed of hope, has been growing constantly over the years and has turned into a robust tree,” he said in a video on his official page.

 

On Tuesday (August 30) President John Mahama shared pictures that put a more “playful” twist on his election campaign. The photos have since attracted various social media users, with the overall effect being positive. The picture gained Mahama, who is hoping for another term in office, 2,225,806 eyeballs.
