A former Greater Accra regional minister under
the Rawlings regime, Prof. Joshua Alabi, has
called on Ghanaians to give President John
Dramani Mahama a second chance come.
Prof. Alabi, who is the Vice Chancellor of the
University of Professional Studies (UPSA),
believes that Ghana stands to gain a lot under
Mahama in the next four years.
“I have known Mahama from childhood. We
lived around the same vicinity in Tamale. He is
a humble guy,” Prof. Alabi said on Starr Chat
with Bola Ray.
“He is doing well and should be given a second
chance,” the former Minister of State  said. “He is one president
who has gone through a lot of demonstrations
and he has been able to maintain his calm.”
“I strongly believe that given the next term, he
will move Ghana to a different level. That is my
belief. I’m saying this not because I’m lazy, but
I just admire him for the way he’s been able to
hold himself up.
“A lot of people will have been off with the
numerous problems that he faced – the
problem [election petition] in court for about
eight months, single spine problems – and
these are problems, which were not caused by
him, but then once you are the president, you
are in charge… he is really focused,” he noted.
Prof. Alabi was born on 1st March, 1958. He
is currently the Vice Chancellor of the
University of Professional Studies (UPSA). He is
an Economist by training and a Marketer by
Profession. He is an Associate Professor in
Marketing and a graduate of two prestigious
Institutions – MSc. in Industrial Economics,
1986 from Moscow Institute of National
Economy and an MSc. in International
Marketing from the Strachylide University
(1992) where he graduated and won the
Mashod Abiola Prize in Marketing.
He is also a member of the Chartered Institute
of Marketing (CIM), Ghana and a Fellow of the
Ghana Institute of Taxation.
His comments come on the wake to alert Ghanaians to vote massively for MAHAMA come November 7 if we goes to the polls to select our President and 275 members of parliament.
