In a short video to thank his fans, Mahama said the direct interaction he has had with his fans on Facebook has been beneficial because they have made him a “better leader.”
“Thanks to you all my dear friends. We’ve just achieved a major milestone. We are one million already on Facebook… The ultimate objective of politics is human interaction for progress and development and Facebook offers us the opportunity to exchange views, ideas and emotions in a direct manner,” Mahama said in the video.
“Because of this exchange, you know me better, and I feel, I know and understand you better too. You’ve made me a better leader and in a sense a better person. I hope that in turn I have made you proud of our mother Ghana… I am and forever will be one of you.”
Mahama, who is seeking a second term in office, has promised to do more to transform lives.
“This is why as your president I fight hard each day to make sure our dear nation moves forward. There is a tremendous lot yet to do, but our progress is undeniable, especially when it comes to the development of social infrastructure which has created some decent number of jobs already. Everything I do I do with you in my heart and with you the good people of Ghana in mind… many thanks to all of you for this 1 million milestone.”
