He wrote "I firmly believe that people should be free to run for any office. However, if ex President John Dramani Mahama asked me for advice on whether to run for office in 2020, I will urge him not to on grounds that he has already served the country in various capacities, including as MP, Minister, VP and President and he should now use his cumulative knowledge and experience to write a book and to serve as a statesman.

"Please note that this is free, unsolicited and non-professional advice that is not binding on the ex President or anyone else. Da Yie!."
