The Flag-bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), former President John Dramani Mahama, has stated that a new NDC government will promote peace and unity in Ghana and ensure that all citizens feel part and partake in nation building.
He said current happenings in Ghana clearly indicated that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) was not concerned about the well-being of the citizens but was doing everything possible to hang on to power forever at the peril of Ghanaians.
“A lot of the things that are happening in the country, closure of radio stations, harassment of journalists and the use of military to prevent people from registering in the ongoing voter registration exercise all show the NPP is doing everything possible to hang on to power,” he noted.
Mr Mahama made these remarks in an interaction with the press after he registered for a new voters identity card at the Bole District Assembly in the Savannah Region on Wednesday, August 5, 2020.
Accompanied by both regional executives of the NDC in the Northern and Savannah regions, Member of Parliaments (MPs) and former appointees, the former President received a rousing welcome to his native hometown.
He chastised the NPP for failing to fulfil the promises it made to Ghanaians that led them to power in the 2016 general elections, saying “it has been four years of abandoned projects and failed promises. One Village, One Dam has not materialised and most districts do not have factories yet. It has been all propaganda”.
He added that “the NDC will come back strongly in 2021 and restore the broken economy and hopes of Ghanaians”.
The Former President, therefore, urged all to come out in their numbers and register for the ID card to enable them to exercise their franchise in the upcoming general election.
