Former President John Dramami Mahama has appealed to delegates of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), to give him unprecedented support to send a signal to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) that, the NDC Party will send them to opposition come 2020 general election.
The Former President made this assertion when he was addressing teeming supporters of the NDC in the Upper East Region in his bid to seek for a return as a Presidential candidate of the Party.
“I need every single of your vote because your endorsement has to be massive. You need to send a signal to the NPP that we are solidly behind your candidate and that, come 2020; we are going to get them out of the Flagstaff House,” Mahama said.
The NDC he touted has a solid track record of good economic stability whereas the NPP has proven to be incompetent in managing the economy.
Mahama also added that, although the NDC was criticized for making the lives of Ghanaians hard, we are currently witnessing extreme hardship.
“The NDC has proven to be a party that cares about the people, that has undertaken massive developments for our people, and under who prosperity and economic activities flourish. They say when we were in power, life was hard and I say today that life is super harder. Any Ghanaian will attest that, life was better off under the NDC than it is under the NPP, except for a few family and friends around the ‘oga’ himself. They will say life is better but if you ask Ghanaians, they will tell you life is harder under the NPP administration than it was under the NDC administration.”
Former president just ended his campaign tour in the Upper East Region.
