Isaac Ashai Odamtten, the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s Parliamentary Candidate for the Tema East Constituency, has sold the NDC’s 2020 Presidential Candidate to Chiefs of Tema as the best option that voters have in presidential materials that will be presented them in 2020.
In a tour of visitation to tribal Chiefs in Tema, Mr Odamtten, who is also the immediate past Metropolitan Chief Executive for Tema, said the former President had already proven himself.
“I need not introduce former President John Dramani Mahama because your Royal Highness knows him already, and you also know what he did in the one term that we gave him between 2012 and 2016.
“But at the same time, I think it spoils nothing to re-emphasize that he is the best option that Ghana has in 2020,” Mr Ashai said during a visit to the Palace of Tema Mantse, Dr. Nii Adjei Kraku ll.
The 2020 Tema East Parliamentary Candidate for NDC reminded that it was former President Mahama who built the schools that enabled the current Administration to implement the Free Senior High School policy, which President Mahama piloted in the form of targeted scholarships for brilliant, but needy students.
He also reminded that the former President ended the phenomenon of ‘dumsor’ and built hospitals as part of massive infrastructural accomplishments.
“Compared to the kind of leadership we are having now, I believe the difference is clear and I do not need to stand here and try to remind your Royal Highness and our elders of what former President Mahama can do,” he said.
