Jomoro citizens hail Mahama

President John Dramani Mahama’s love for making juicy promises to the Ghanaian citizenry appears to be working magic for him, inveigling many to his camp, ahead of the November 7 poll. The latest to succumb to those promises are some citizens of Jomoro living in Accra.

According to them, in a press statement issued in Accra and copied to The Chronicle and signed by one Mr. Dan Borsor and two others, they were “highly enthused by the President’s demonstration of interest in the creation of certain projects in Jomoro when elected into office for a second term.”

The statement said President Mahama’s promise to establish a gas processing and gas exportation infrastructure at Bonyere and Domunli respectively, among others, during his accounting to the people tour, was an indication of his commitment to transform Jomoro.

“When the gas project was moved from its original location at the Domunli enclave to the Ellembelle district, all well-meaning citizens of Jomoro were peeved and saddened.

“Some of them even vowed never to forgive the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government which orchestrated the relocation of the project to Atuabo, but numerous assurances given by the President on various platforms has rekindled our hope and allayed our anger,” read the statement.

According to the statement, the Jomoro Citizens Association felt indebted to the President, hence their show of gratitude to the “man who has assured to restore to us our birthright.”

As a result, continued the statement, the association has endorsed the candidacy of President Mahama for re-election during the November 7 poll.

“By this release… [we] want to assure you of our unflinching support for the upcoming presidential election,” they said. They pledged to leave no stone unturned in galvanising as many votes as possible, to ensure President Mahama was retained as head of state post-November 7.
