The former President and flagbearer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, is expected in the Upper East Region tomorrow. It is expected that the former president will spend two days in the region as part of his “Building Ghana” tour.
Speaking on the “Day Break Upper East” show about the former president’s tour, the Upper East Regional Communication Director for the NDC, Jonathan Abdallah, explained that the tour had become necessary to collate the views and contributions of Ghanaians from all walks of life as the party seeks to create a manifesto that truly represents the thoughts of the people.
Additionally, the former president is expected to communicate his own thoughts about the policies he intends to implement should he be voted for in the coming election.
“We are expecting him tomorrow. He is coming for a two-day tour. He will not be able to cover all 15 constituencies. He would touch base with six. He will be meeting students as well. The purpose of this visit is to collate views, including the thoughts of your organisation, the Ghana Journalists Association, as to how we can govern this party when he is elected this year,” Abdallah said.
“He will also use the opportunity to announce some of the policies that he intends to bring on board when he becomes president.”
The former president is expected to begin his tour with an engagement with chiefs in the Upper East Region at the Regional House of Chiefs. The former president would then head to Zuarungu to have an engagement with the chiefs and people of the area.
The former president is then expected to return to Bolgatanga, the Upper East Regional capital, and hold a public engagement with CSOs, trade and labor unions, and leaders of associations of various skilled persons.
