Accra, Sept. 29, GNA - Mrs. Lordina Mahama, wife of the National Democratic Candidate Congress (NDC) presidential running mate, has returned to Accra after a one-week tour of parts of the Brong-Ahafo Region and expressed worry over shortage of NDC T-shirts. She said she felt helpless in the face of the high demand for the party's T-shirts but she was encouraged that those who did not have the T-shirts said they would vote for the NDC.
Mrs Mahama received a rousing welcome at Techiman, Kintampo, Nkoransa, Tuobodom, Ampoma, Bodum and Jema and appealed to the people to vote for the NDC.
She urged the supporters to continue being at peace with their political opponents and nothing should be done to tarnish the image of the party.
Hajia Maeriam Sinare, Deputy National Women's Organizer of NDC, said the party would revitalize agriculture and would subsidize fertilizer. She said the NDC would enhance the tourism attraction sites in the region to help attract potential investors to the region. "We will do that through the encouragement of individuals to build hotels and other tourism facilities that will also increase employment for the youth."
Hajia Zenaibu Mahama Joyce, Brong Ahafo Regional Women's Organizer, said the NDC would fulfil any promise it might make to the electorate and ensure that whatever was contained in its manifesto would be fully implemented. She said the party would not deceive the people just to win their votes and turn their back on them when they are voted into power.
