Governance isn’t about “macho”-Irbard Ibrahim tells Prez Mahama

Irbard Ibrahim,International Relations Expert and the security analyst has called on President Mahama to be more responsible in solving the nation’s economic crises than cruising on motorbikes.


President Mahama yesterday made the headlines by taking the decision to ride through the areas of Accra  on  a motorbike. He is reported to have rode through several neighborhoods in the capital.

It was a first time in recent years, a sitting Ghanaian President is known to have embarked on such adventure.Former President Rawlings, who is a pilot, was reportedly a fun of skillful plane displays, in his youthful days.

Ghanaians had diverse opinions in reaction to this motoring  adventure by the president.Some people thought ,it was necessary and a good move by the president to disguise and see for himself what is happening in the country especially Accra.

Some citizens also thought otherwise,said it was unnecessary.” Accra is in floods and all you could do is to be riding on a motorbike enjoying “? one asked.
