Mr Mahama is from Bole in the northern part of Ghana. As far as Mr Amidu, also a northerner, is concerned, the manner in which the President has led the country, so far, leaves much to be desired.

In his view, Mr Mahama has allowed corruption to fester in his Government; a situation he believes is uncomplimentary of northerners.

“We [northerners] have been known since time immemorial to be honest people; the government you [President] are running corruptly is damaging us,” Mr Amidu said.

“I’ve said that because of his behaviour, for the next 20, 30 years, this country will not vote for a northern President, and he [President] is disgracing me as a northerner, I don’t like it,” Mr Amidu added.

Pressed by the host about whether he had any personal issues with the President, Mr Amidu said: ‘No, I don’t have anything against him, except that I’ve told him that as a young northerner to ascent to this position, discharge your duty with utmost integrity to uphold the image of we northerner.”
