Mahama begins campaign in Western Region today

Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), President John Dramani Mahama, will kick start his campaign for re-election in the Western Region today [Tuesday].

The campaign will see the President visit markets, schools and a number of government projects in the region as he tries to convince Ghanaians to give him a second term.

President Mahama’s visit to the region comes right after the flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, ended a five-day campaign tour of the region.

His first stop on the campaign trail will be at Agona Nkwanta and he is expected to grace the national fisheries grand durbar at Axim later in the day.

President Mahama’s campaign comes a day after the party officially launched its campaign in the Central Region.

The National Campaign Coordinator for the party, Kofi Adams expressed confidence that the President has done enough to win another term in office.

“Of course we don’t think that the elections would be a walkover but we believe that we have done a lot. We have done so much that we are going to win this election.”
