Former President John Mahama has asserted that, the return of the National Democratic Congress in 2020 will relieve Ghanaians of the current hardship being experienced under the leadership of Nana Akufo Addo.
The former president seems optimistic of the chances of the NDC in clinging onto victory in 2020, therefore assuring Ghanaians of a better economic life when they return. He made this known during his campaign tour of Gushegu in the Northern Region.
“During NDC’s period in government, we see rapid development in terms of infrastructure and then we see some relief in terms of people’s living and then we see improved economic living. If NDC comes to power, we will relieve some of the hardship you are feeling currently.”
The former President was also optimistic the National Democratic Congress will return to power in 2020.
“I am sure that NDC will be given another chance because wherever you go in the country people complain of hardship. When we were in government they said there was hardship and at the time petrol a gallon was 14 cedis and today it is 26. At some places it is 25, and other places 24. People have seen the pinch.”
John Mahama is vigorously touring the entire country to seek the mandate of the party’s delegates in the upcoming flagbearship elections in December.
He is being contested by some key bigwigs of the party, facing the likes of former Minister of Trade, Spio Garbrah and second deputy Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin.
