“Through your generosity, you have once again proven that with unity, solidarity, dedication, and hard work, we shall win election 2020 to alleviate the hardships of the suffering masses of Ghana, President Mahama has told his followers.
The Former leader expressed his appreciation to his followers for supporting his bid as the Flagbearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the upcoming Congress of the party.
In a post on social media, the Presidential aspirant wrote:” I am overwhelmed by your generosity- that within 24hrs many of you, not only known supporters of the NDC have come together and raised more than enough to support the cost of picking my forms and filing the nomination to lead our great party to #victory2020.”
He added: “I am further humbled by the teeming number of you who gathered in my office, to contribute your widow’s mite to my campaign. Thank you.”
Some supporters and friends of Mr Mahama raised more than the GHS420,000 being demanded by the party to support the former president’s campaign.
Also some grassroots supporters of the NDC on Monday, 3 November 2018 queued at the former president’s office at Cantonments, Accra to contribute their widow’s mite towards his GHS420,000 fee, while a group of 96 Minority Members of Parliament-MPs4JM, who have declared their support for Mr Mahama’s bid to run for the NDC flag bearer, also mobilised funds for mahama’s campaign.
