Ex-President John Mahama will begin a campaign tour of the Ashanti Region today November 12, 2018. His tour of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) stronghold will break on Thursday ahead of National Democratic Congress’ national delegates congress.
Mr Mahama will continue his tour of the Ashanti Region after the Congress. He has already taken his campaign tour to six regions; the Central, Upper West, Upper East, Northern, Brong Ahafo and Greater Accra regions.
The NDC flagbearer aspirant has also met with delegates in the constituencies of these regions.
In the Ashanti Region, Mr. Mahama is expected to discuss the state of the economy and the high cost of living with delegates.
Job creation and the structure of the NDC will also be on the agenda.
John Mahama is contesting with over 10 other persons for the flagbearer position of the NDC ahead of the 2020 elections.
There was speculations Mr. Mahama had named Dr. Zanetor Rawlings, daughter of former president and NDC founder, Jerry John Rawlings as his running mate.
But his campaign team denied such reports. The team said Mr. Mahama is currently focused on his official duties and his campaign to be flagbearer of the NDC.
