The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, will today, Thursday November 5, commence a four-day campaign tour of the Eastern Region.
He will address the chiefs and people, including zongo chiefs and imams, in a number of constituencies during this tour.
Mahama, who will focus on key policies and promises in the People’s Manifesto, will also meet and interact with farmers, traders, okada riders, artisans and drivers.
In particular, he will highlight plans in the NDC’s manifesto to create jobs, ensure universal access to healthcare through the Free Primary Healthcare policy and his plan to implement Free Technical and Vocational Education and Training (Free T-VET) and his party’s proposed state sponsored National Apprenticeship Programme, which seeks to empower the youth with employable skills.
Meanwhile, Mahama has vowed to put Ghanaian businesses at the center of Ghana’s economic growth in his next term.
To achieve that, he said his government will create that supportive environment and opportunities for the creation, growth, and expansion of new and existing businesses.
“We’ll deliberately ensure that the indigenous Ghanaian businesses benefit fully and significantly from all projects funded by the government of Ghana,” the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) stated Wednesday at a program dubbed Accra Speaks: an evening with John Dramani Mahama.
According to Mahama, making Ghanaian businesses at the center of the country’s economy is very critical in stopping the huge capital outflows from the country in order “to create a multiplier effect that for an accelerated economic takeoff.”
