Western Region: Mahama promises jobs for all NDC members if he becomes president
Former President John Dramani Mahama has promised to secure jobs for all National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters if he wins the 2024 elections during a campaign tour at Shama in the Western Region.
Mr Mahama addressed the party faithful on Friday, March 24, calling for unity and advising NDC supporters to strive for and win the Shama Constituency seat, which has been held by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for far too long.
He said, “If our party comes to power, we can secure jobs for everyone… And even if your candidate does not win the parliamentary elections, he or she can be appointed as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of a State Enterprise, an Ambassador or Chairman of a board, so this is not a life and death matter, come together with one goal to win the seat.”
“I have officially filed to contest as the flagbearer for the NDC… Even though I was advised not to embark on this tour because I am popular among constituents, I saw it necessary to do this because I respect you all.”
Presidential Candidate John Mahama kicked off a three-day campaign trip to the Western Region on Friday, March 24.
He will meet with branch and constituency executives from each of the region’s 17 constituencies to push his message of expanding the party and its structures beyond their current status.
He will also use the occasion to mobilize resources to help canvass aggressively for votes in the 2024 elections, as well as to discuss his agenda for building Ghana we all want.
Mr Mahama travelled to the Western Region from Ashanti, where he met with executives from 20 of the region’s 47 constituencies.
During the opening of the John Mahama Campaign at the University of Health and Allied Sciences near Ho, the aspiring presidential candidate toured the Volta, Bono East, Ahafo, and Bono Regions.
According to Spokesperson Joyce Bawah Mogtari, the tour will begin in Daboase in the Wassa East Constituency and will travel through Shama and Mpohor before concluding in Kwesimintsim.
