Former President John Dramani Mahama has revealed that campaigns funds and logistics failed to get to the right people hence the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) heavy loss in the last election.

The NDC led by John Mahama lost by almost one million votes- the heaviest in the Fourth Republic.

However, Mr. Mahama, addressing party supporters at Bawjiase in Awutu Senya West constituency on day one of his four-day tour of the Central Region said the party lost the election because campaign funds and logistics did not get to the grassroots.

He, therefore, gave the assurance that such mistakes will not be committed ahead of the 2020 election.

“We have identified all our mistakes and we have learned from our mistakes; so we now need unity to win the 2020 elections”

Mr. Mahama called on all aspirants vying for various positions in the party to desist from insulting each other on their campaign platforms.

He said unity and peace in the party should be their campaign message when they are given the platform.

According to him, the aim of the party now is to win the 2020 elections and the only tool for such victory is unity amongst members of the party.

Former President John Mahama is embarking on a four-day tour of the Central Region.

The tour forms part of his preparations to canvass for votes to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as its flagbearer for the 2020 elections.

The tour dubbed, "Itinerary for JM's Campaign Tour in CR", will confer with key stakeholders and delegates of the party in the region.

He noted that, for the party to win the 2020 elections, members need to be more vigilant in the counting of ballot papers at the various polling stations.
