Former President John Dramani Mahama has said he is not seeking a return to the seat of government as president to experiment with his proposed policies and programmes.

He said, he has been there before therefore he  has the track records of implementing good programmes that touch the lives of Ghanaians.

To that end, he said, Ghanaians should have trust and confidence in him and vote for him to become president again.

Mr Mahama said these in an interview with TV3’s Komla Kluste in an exclusive interview.

He said “I am not coming to experiment, I have done it before, people have seen my track record .I don’t think I am coming to do any experimentation.

“We did well in infrastructure,  that is undisputable.  My next focus is taking it to the next level with up scaling skills for young people so they can find a place in the world of work.”

Touching on the mistakes he did that led to his defeat in the 2016 elections, he said “If you talk about things that we could have done  better then it is that connection with the masses.

“Having been a minister of communications and then being the vice president I had this direct communication with the masses.

“Once you become president you have the information minister, you have all kinds of people and you are not allowed to continue to have that direct contact with the masses and so, I have done that correction already.

“When I became the flagbearer, I came out with the Speak Out tour. It took me directly to the people  and discussed their issues with them  and also shared my perspectives with them.”
