My daughter was happy I lost 2016 elections - John Mahama

The former leader of the opposition National Democratic Congress
(NDC), John Dramani Mahama has disclosed that his 8-year-old daughter,
Farida was extremely excited when he lost the 2016 elections.

According to John Mahama, Farida proved to him that she was not
bothered about his humiliating defeat to the New Patriotic Party
(NPP). President Mahama who was delivering a lecture in Nigeria
recently, said that he woke up a day after his defeat only to turn his
television to CNN, since he had no office to go to.

"I remember the day after I had handed over – this was the 8th of
January – I woke up in the morning and remembered there was no office
to go to. So, I relaxed in my bed and turned on the TV, watching CNN.I
spent the whole day watching TV," he said.

The former NDC leader recounted that he could go for a whole week
without seeing his daughter when he was president. But for the first
time his daughter returned from school in the afternoon only to meet
him lying in bed which was unusual.
"So she asked me, ''Daddy, didn't you go to the office?'' I said;

''No, don't you remember that I handed over to President Akufo-Addo
yesterday.'' She said OK; so it means you are not going to the office
anymore? I said ''yes, I have no office to go to.'' And she said, ''so
will I be coming home from school and meeting you in the house? I said
yes and she said, ''then I am very happy that you lost the
elections!," President Mahama said.

President Mahama after an overwhelming defeat in the December 7,
elections, peacefully conceded defeat and handed over to NPP leader,
Nana Akufo-Addo on January 7, 2017.
