The Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah, has ended his six-day tour of the Upper West Region, with a call on the people to rally behind the leadership of President John Mahama as Ghana prepares for election 2016.

He also thanked the chiefs and people of the region for their continuous support for President Mahama and the massive support given to him and his delegation during the tour.

Mr Debrah said this when he paid a courtesy call on the chiefs of Kaleo in the Nadowli-Kaleo Constituency in the Upper West Region on his last day tour in the region last Saturday.
