John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has expressed his commitment to tackling the many difficulties faced by the average Ghanaian.
He stated that his recent nationwide tour prior to the party’s primaries provided him with insight into the challenges experienced by Ghanaians under the current administration of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
During a thanksgiving service at the Ringway Gospel Centre of the Assemblies of God Church, Mr. Mahama emphasized that if he were to win the 2024 general elections, the NDC would work towards alleviating the burdens faced by the people.
“We thank God for travelling mercies and ask him to continue to protect us always. We know that God will make things well in his own time. If we had won the 2020 elections, this haircut and IMF wahala will be on our heads. I thank God that I went round the country to witness the challenges our people are faced with. This will prepare us so that when by the grace of God we are able to steer the affairs of this country again, we will address these challenges. Going round has shaken the base of the party and made it ready for what we are going to face in 2024,” the NDC flagbearer said.
In attendance at the thanksgiving service were NDC executives, MPs and bigwigs.
The former president during the party’s presidential and parliamentary primaries secured 98.9 percent of the votes at the NDC primaries.
