The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, has today Monday September 28th, 2020 resumed his tour of the Bono Region.
A statement issued by the 2020 campaign spokesperson for the NDC James Agyenim-Boateng said “Mr. Mahama will meet with chiefs, farmers, okada riders, religious and community leaders, among others, and highlight issues in the People’s Manifesto, the NDC’s 2020 manifesto, which addresses the specific needs of the Bono Region”.
The statement added that “Mr Mahama will outline plans to increase the earnings of farmers”.
The Former President will also “touch on setting up a cashew development board to support farmers, state-sponsored apprenticeship programme for the youth, legalizing okada and his plan to provide Free Primary Healthcare which seeks to remove cost as a barrier to primary healthcare”.
Last Tuesday, Mr Mahama and his Running Mate, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, suspended their tours of the Bono and Central Regions respectively following significant challenges with the Electoral Commission’s provisional voters register.
