Mahama will take Ghana to promised land - Ofosu Ampofo

The Director of Elections of the governing National Democratic Congress says President John Mahama is the only person capable of improving the economic fortunes of Ghana.

Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo says the President has demonstrated over the past three and a half years that he understands the challenges of Ghanaians and has shown the commitment to resolving them.

“Under President Mahama, Ghana has been touted to be the fastest growing economy for 2017,” he said.

NDC 'Transformation Agenda' campaign rally commences

The final campaign rally of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) has commenced at the Accra Sports Stadium, Monday.

The programme has been attended by thousands of NDC supporters, government functionaries, and party executives.

Former President Jerry John Rawlings is among a tall list of party bigwigs expected to address the crowd.

NDC flagbearer, President John Mahama will use the opportunity to make a convincing case before Ghanaians about why he deserves to be retained in office after Wednesday’s polls.

The NDC’s national campaign rally comes barely hours after the largest opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) held its rally at the Ghana International Trade Fair Center in Accra, Sunday.

The NDC has argued it has delivered on key sectors of Ghana’s economy for the past three and a half years of President Mahama’s tenure, hence it deserves another chance.

The President has mentioned a plethora of achievements including the recently commissioned, Kwame Nkrumah Interchange, Kasoa Interchange, completed 112 Community Day Senior High Schools (SHSs), and the creation of over 400,000 jobs in the country.

Considering his achievements, President Mahama said there is no need for Ghanaians to vote for the NPP.

According to him, voting for any of his political opponents in the coming polls will rob the country of the good things it stands to benefit from his government.
