Aburi Gardens will not be sold- Prez Mahama

President Mahama has once again promised to ensure that December’s polls are conducted in a peaceful atmosphere.

Addressing this year’s Odwira Festival in Aburi in the Eastern Region, President Mahama also debunked rumours of the sale of the Aburi Garden by government.

According to him, the country is only urging private investors to help in developing the Garden into an international tourist destination.

He said the government will not sell such an asset to private persons when it can get into a partnership with them in order to give the place a facelift.

Meanwhile, President John Dramani Mahama on Friday concluded his three-day campaign tour of the Volta Region with a call on defeated National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary candidates to support winning candidates to chalk victory.

During his three-day visit, the President addressed rallies, inaugurated development projects, launched the Party’s manifesto at Ho, visited Senior High Schools and held meetings with the party hierarchy in the Region.

He said the government would not renege on its promise to provide numerous development projects for Ghanaians under the “Better Ghana Agenda” and called on party members to bury their differences and forge ahead for a resounding victory in the December polls.
