Dear President Mahama
I will like to take this opportunity to apologize to you on behalf of the youth of Ghana for mocking you after you lost your bid for presidency. We are truly sorry for all the Memes, Captions n Disgusting videos of your funeral services across the country. These things happened as a result of our Joblessness. Majority of us are home after graduating from school hence social media has become our daily companion. A lot of us hide behind it to voice out our frustrations, vexations and fury.
Since your still the father of the land until January 7th pls find it in your heart to forgive us for our appauling comportment. We got carried away with the overwhelming n historic victory. Henceforth please ignore the populace on social media n focus on how your going to hand over to the President Elect Nana Akuffo Addo Peacefully. We still respect u as the outgoing President of the Republic of Ghana and won’t do anything to jeopardize the peace n stability of this country . Thank u for your service to the people of Ghana, the infrastructure n Branded Buses.
May God be with you and your family throughout this festive season. May he lift your spirit and fill your wounded heart with joy. Anytime you feel down, just look at the priceless smile on your daughters face for consolation. Thank you.
Ms Appiah polled an abysmal 429 votes out of a total of 75, 792 valid votes cast at the Trobu Constituency in Amasaman.
