Mahama Begins Campaign In Bono East Region
Flagbearer hopeful for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has taken his campaign to the Bono East region.
This follows an end to his campaign in the Volta Region earlier this month.
He will be in the Bono Region for two days beginning on March 10.
The former President has been canvassing for votes against his contenders- former Finance Minister Kwabena Duffuor, former Chief Executive of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), Kojo Bonsu and Ernest Kwaku Kobeah- to lead the main opposition party into the 2024 general elections.
In the Volta region where he launched his campaign dubbed “Building the Ghana We Want Together”, he leveraged his experience as a former President.
Mr Mahama stated that Ghana “needs experience and not experiment”.
He believes his contenders will only undertake trials with the country when they get the mandate from the party and subsequently from the country.
“Ghana does not need a try-me-too leader…Our country at this time urgently needs a leader with an unwavering desire to get things in a no frills no thrills business-like manner. Not one enamoured with sloganeering excessive partisanship and for personal comfort and shallow populism.”
He noted that he has a myriad of experiences to be the president Ghana desperately needs.
“Our present state and its effect on our people trouble me a lot and this why as you have observed at every significant wrong turn or decision taken by this government I have with the benefit of the experience I have acquired, provided alternative solutions and even offered the expertise and knowledge of some of my colleagues to help get us out of this challenges. There is an increasing gap right now between the Ghanaian society and the Ghanaian political system and it is one of the reasons a change is absolutely necessary at this particular time. I know how to deliver that badly needed change.”
“I’m ready to be the kind of President that Ghanaians are looking for. In our present situation, it is no longer sufficient to sit on the sidelines and offers suggestions which are most often ignored. I’m therefore coming before you in all humility and in response to the calls from my party and the generality of the people of Ghana to offer myself to serve this country and its people that I love dearly by first putting myself up for election in the oncoming NDC election.”
