The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, has stated the next NDC government will be committed to building a nation that creates opportunities for all Ghanaians, not a privileged few.
He indicated that working hard to creating jobs, reducing hardship and achieving universal access to healthcare through the implementation of Free Primary Healthcare will all be on top of the agenda of the next NDC government.
“Just like you, I believe everybody, all of us, should have access to healthcare. This is why the NDC will be rolling out a Free Primary Healthcare Plan for all. Just like you, I believe mothers are sacred, and they deserve quality time with their newborn babies. This is why we are increasing the maternity leave for mothers to four months,” the NDC flagbearer said in an exclusive wrap up interview of his five-day campaign tour of the Western Region to Woezor TV and TV XYZ in Takoradi on Friday.
He said he believes women are equal to men, and their voice should always be heard, stressing “This is why I chose Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as my running mate. Just like you, I believe young people are right to expect to live in a modern, vibrant Ghana”.
Mr Mahama said he will work towards transforming Ghana into a knowledge-based economy will and drive development through digitised platforms that provide millions of opportunities for young people to harness their talent, skills and potentials.
“This is why I am running for President. I will make you proud to be a Ghanaian. I will make you proud of who you are, make you hope for what we can become – a truly developed nation. Be proud of what we can become as a country and join me in my quest to lead our country there, by voting for me, John Mahama, number 2 on the ballot paper on 7th December”, he added.
