Mahama to resume Ashanti campaign on Friday
Presidential Candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama is expected to resume his campaign tour of the Ashanti Region tomorrow, Friday, November 20, 2020.
Mr. Mahama suspended his six-day campaign tour of the region last week following the demise of the party’s founder, ex-President Jerry John Rawlings.
When he resumes his tour, he is expected to meet with traditional and religious leaders, party members, and other identifiable groups in the region during the tour.
“The Ashanti Regional Secretariat of the NDC announces for the information of the rank and file of our great party and the people of Ashanti Region that the leader and flagbearer of the NDC, and Ghana’s next President, H.E John Dramani Mahama will from Friday, November 20, 2020, continue his campaign tour of the Ashanti Region for the 2020 elections.
“His Excellency John Mahama is expected to continue his interactions with traditional and religious leaders, chiefs and opinion leaders, professional groups, artisans, party members, and sympathizers among other interest groups,” a statement signed by Kwame Zu, the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NDC said.
The Ashanti Region is the stronghold of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). It is the second time in three months the NDC Presidential candidate has been campaigning in the region as he seeks to shore up his number of votes in a region that has been loyal to the New Patriotic Party since 1992.
Currently, the NDC has only three out of the 47 seats. Asawase, Sekyere Afram Plains and Ejura Sekyeredumase constituencies voted NDC in 2016.
