Mahama Books Journalists for Conversation

Former President John Dramani Mahama will be sharing his vision for Presidency with the media next month, as he advances on his quest to regain power in the upcoming general elections.

He will meet with journalists and have a conversation with them as part of his campaign strategy.

The former President says he will use the opportunity to address key national issues.

“I will on Sunday, July 7, 2024, host a major engagement with journalists, an opportunity to share my vision for Ghana’s future and address important national interest issues,” he said in a Facebook post.

Mr Mahama has been engaging stakeholders as part of his campaign. He has since engaged the Ghanaian creative industry, Canoe Wharf at the Tema Fishing Harbour, the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) and others.

Among his promises is his “game changer” 24-hour economy policy which he anticipates would create jobs and enhance service delivery; digitalization of agriculture; reduction in government size; and fight against corruption.

He observes that Ghanaians are reeling under economic hardships caused by the current administration and believes he has the requisite expertise to deal with it.

Yet, he comes against his fierce contender from the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the current Vice President who is promising a flat tax system, reduction in energy costs by shifting to solar panels; collaboration with the private sector to reduce government expenditure; involvement of chiefs in governance; review of Section 63 (d) of the Chieftaincy Act; and the provision of digital skills to one million youth.

The polls will be on December 7, 2024.
