Former president John Mahama has called on members of the National Democratic Congress [NDC] to use their time in opposition as a learning process not to repeat the same mistakes they have committed over the years.
Some members of the NDC after the 2016 general elections loss have taken to the media to register their displeasure and also blame each other for the loss of the party.
A committee was also set up to look into the defeat of the party.
But speaking at a meeting with former government appointees under his administration, former president has asked party faithful’s to desist from pointing figures at each other as there are many factors contributing to their electoral defeat.
“But I’ve said the course of our loss was a multi-faceted and we need to do a careful analysis of it, get the report and be able to breakdown exactly resulted in our loss.”
“As the General who led us into battle I take ultimate responsibility for our losing the election. So if it will satisfy those people, blame me for the loss. Yes we lost, we should have done some things better but let’s use this opportunity as a learning opportunity to be able to make sure that we don’t make the same mistakes that we did in 2016.”He added.
He believe the committee tasked to look into the party’s defeat should be allowed to finish it work.
“The unfortunate developments that are taking place – we’ve set up a committee that is supposed to go round and analyze the reasons for our loss.”
