Mahama takes campaign to Eastern Region

The former President, John Mahama, commences a four-day tour of the Eastern Region on Thursday, 5 November 2020

The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, heads to the Eastern Region on Thursday (5 November 2020) to start a four-day campaign tour.

According to a statement from his campaign office, Mahama is scheduled to address chiefs, including Zongo chiefs and imams, in a number of constituencies during the tour.

Mahama, who will focus on key policies and promises in the People’s Manifesto, will also meet and interact with farmers, traders, okada riders, artisans and drivers.

“In particular, he will highlight plans in the NDC’s manifesto to create jobs, ensure universal access to healthcare through the Free Primary Healthcare policy and his plan to implement Free Technical and Vocational Education and Training (Free T-VET) and his party’s proposed state sponsored National Apprenticeship Programme, which seeks to empower the youth with employable skills,” the statement added.

‘I’ll be a better president’

Mahama has been appealing to Ghanaians to vote massively for him because he “can be trusted” and comes with a lot of experience.

“Ghanaians should choose John Mahama because he’s a person you can trust. What you see is what you get,” the opposition leader stated in a recent interview.

“I have the track record and I believe that having been president before, I’ll make a better president in my second term,” he added.

According to the former president, he regretted not “speaking directly to the people during my time in office” and so that vacuum was filled with a lot of propaganda.

“So, this time when I come I will go round and directly speak to the people on what we are doing and some of our policies.”

The 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections will be held on 7 December 2020.
