Former President John Dramani Mahama is celebrating his 60 birthday today, November 29, 2018.
Mahama has a special place in the history of Ghana’s Fourth Republic, having risen through the ranks to become president.
The 60-year-old served as the Vice President from 2009 to 2012, when he was sworn in as stand-in president following the shocking death of then President John Evans Atta-Mills.
He was, however, elected the substantive President after recording a first-round victory in the 2012 elections.
But he lost out in his bid for a second term after the NDC succumbed to the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo in the 2016 elections.
Mahama also previously served as a Member of Parliament from 1997 to 2009 and Minister of Communications from 1998 to 2001.
