Former President John Dramani Mahama will on Tuesday begin a campaign tour of the Northern Region to interact with delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Mr Mahama is seeking the mandate of delegates to lead the NDC to victory in the 2020 presidential elections.
He is scheduled to visit every constituency in the Northern Region during his five-day tour.
Mr Mahama will remind delegates of the importance of the upcoming flagbearership elections and encourage them to participate on election day. He will also urge party members to work together following the constituency and regional executive elections of the NDC.
Last week, Mr Mahama started his campaign in the Central Region where he met with delegates and addressed them on a wide range of issues, including the current economic hardship, the high cost of living and the campaign of lies and deceit which has resulted in the non-performance by the government.
Among others, the former President is promising to work towards a reduction in the high cost of living as well as provide jobs and complete the projects started by his government, which have been abandoned. “You can use lies and deceit to gain power. But you cannot use lies and deceit to run and sustain a government”, Mr Mahama repeatedly told delegates in the Central Region.
Mr Mahama has an enviable record of making massive investment in roads, water, sanitation, healthcare, education, aviation infrastructure, etc.
