The 94 MPs have welcomed the decision and promised to support John Mahama’s campaign with their expertise, knowledge and personal resources.
“As Members of Parliament, we would like to express our profound gratitude to His Excellency, John Dramani Mahama for hearkening to the cries of our Constituents which we presented to him when we met him four (4) months ago” a statement from the MP’s said.
The statement went on to state – “Our Constituents had one simple message – President Mahama should avail himself to the people of Ghana to salvage the sinking ship under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. Today He has heeded the clarion call of the people and we are grateful.”
