Former President John Dramani Mahama will on Monday begin his tour of the Ashanti Region ahead of the National Democratic Congress’ presidential primary next month.
Though his maiden leadership in 2012 was successful, his second in 2016 led to an excruciating defeat to long-time opponent Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“The former president has been calling for unity in the NDC, promising to strengthen the structures of the party as well as modernize its programmes and activities to address the needs of its members.
“Reducing the high cost of living in the country as well as working hard to provide jobs for Ghanaians has also been major taking points for Mr Mahama during his meetings with delegates.” – the statement further revealed.
