By Awudu Mahama,
President John Dramani Mahama yesterday began a five-day campaign tour of the Brong Ahafo Region ahead of the 2016 general election.
He is expected to tour a number of constituencies in the region with his ‘Changing Lives and Transforming Ghana’ agenda to woo the electorates to renew his mandate for the second term.
Per the itinerary released to the media by the Brong Ahafo Regional Secretary of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dennis Yeboah Twumasi, the President as part of the campaign tour, will pay courtesy calls on some selected chiefs, commission projects and address party supporters at different rallies.
This is the third time President Mahama is taking his campaign to the Brong Region where at the recent NDC manifesto launch, he described as “the home of my in laws,” because his wife Lordina is a daughter of the region.
He has so far toured all the 10 regions of Ghana, visiting some twice and campaigning vigorously for re-election in the December 7 polls.
