At the 2024 African Heritage Awards Ceremony held in Lagos, Nigeria, on Saturday, former president John Dramani Mahama was presented with the African Advancement Award for Exemplary Leadership.

The African Heritage Awards, which are hosted by the Heritage Times of Nigeria, provide a forum for bringing together notable African organisations, innovators, and businesspeople who, like John Dramani Mahama, have contributed significantly to the continent’s rise to prominence.

Mr. Mahama, who is leading the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to Ghana’s 2024 elections, was recognised as an Exemplary African Leader in a citation that also included efforts to address power shortages and increase job creation through agricultural expansion. Mr. Mahama has been leading the NDC to economic challenges and improved livelihoods through the implementation of massive infrastructure projects across critical sectors.

In order to improve Ghanaians’ quality of life, the Mahama administration targeted major economic initiatives and carried out extensive infrastructure projects in a number of industries, including transportation, healthcare, education, power, and housing.

“Mahama expedited the installation of power plants and implemented emergency strategies to handle the issue of power scarcity, resulting in more than 800 megawatts of power within 18 months.”

A man of peace, John Dramani Mahama has a deep love for his people. In an effort to uphold and strengthen democracy throughout Africa, he calmly passed over power to his successor following a democratic election, putting his love for peace and security in Ghana to the test.
