Ex-President John Dramani Mahama says his stunning defeat in the 2016 presidential poll was orchestrated by God to teach Ghanaians some lessons.

He said if the NDC had not lost the election Ghanaians will still believe the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) is capable of handling all the challenges in the country.

But Mahama told supporters at the NDC maiden Unity Walk in Tamale Saturday the evidence is obvious that the NPP is incapable of controlling affairs.

He believes Ghanaians will now begin to appreciate the good works of the NDC in the face of the apparent failure of the NPP.

“No amount of propaganda can make the people oblivious to their own living condition because they are living it,” Mahama said.

The NDC is yet to come out of the shock it was plunged into following its defeat in the 2016 poll.

The party had predicted it will win the election with less difficulty but it lost with the biggest margin in the history of the country.

The NDC has since been gutted with one turf war after the other as members try to push blames around.

But after eight months of disagreements, Mahama said the time has come for the party to unite ahead of the 2020 polls.

“In the aftermath of a defeat you will have disagreements that will lead to quarrel amongst you but you must look forward to the next battle,” the ex-president said.

Mahama said the NDC has two major responsibilities to discharge, which holds the life wire to its victory in 2020.

“We have to become a formidable opposition and to be the voice of the voiceless,” he said, adding this can only be done if the party is united.

The second responsibility, Mahama said is for the party to “reorganize, re-strategise and analyse” its defeat to be able to pluck the loopholes.

“There are the tongue and teeth, once a while they quarrel…the time has come for us to put our differences aside,” he added.
