Mahama is also expected to deliver the keynote address at the African Leadership Magazine (ALM) Person of the Year 2016 Awards Programme in Johannesburg.

The former President will be speaking on the theme, “How can Africa win the progress race?”

The ALM Person of the Year Awards, according to the organizers, is in keeping with a tradition of presenting the positive sides of the African continent, which hardly finds space on the global stage. It will also celebrate exemplary leadership and individuals who have contributed to shaping the global perception of the African continent.

In the words of the Chairman of the International Advisory board of the ALM Awards, Ambassador Joe Beasley, “it is gratifying to know that Africa still has leaders like you bestriding the political space.”

He also noted that Mr. Mahama made significant contributions to Ghana’s economic growth and development; spearheaded and completed some ambitious projects; went into the elections and respected the wishes of the electorate – a feat uncommon amongst many leaders in the continent.
