The Faculty of Academic Affairs & Research director at the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) has praised former President Mahama for being tolerant of divergent views during his tenure.
According to Prof. Kwesi Aning, he could vociferously criticize the former President and still sleep soundly after such critiques.
Speaking at the John Evans Atta Mills Memorial Lecture for Central and Western Regions, he indicated that general security was about being tolerant of different forms and ideas of the diversity of opinions, and the former President was an embodiment of such descriptions.
“And here, I want to celebrate and salute former President John Mahama. I criticized him, and he knows it. I never spared him. But I also slept soundly.
“I criticised the former president so much that every time he came to the Kofi Annan Peacekeeping Training Centre, he said, ‘Let me see if Kwesi is there so that I can recognise him, so he doesn’t criticize me’. So, thank you very much.”
