The Ashanti Regional branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has scheduled next Wednesday, January 24, 2024, a procession through the Central Business District of Kumasi to sensitize the public on the expected impact of the 24-hour economy proposal promised by John Dramani Mahama if he wins the next general elections.
The peaceful walk intended to target people within the Central Business District of Kumasi, is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, January 24, 2024.
Ashanti Regional Organizer of the party, Isham Yaw Alhassan, who announced this at a press briefing, said the exercise will start from the Aboabo Post office, through Bantama High Street, KATH Roundabout, Kejetia Roundabout, Adum Pampaso, Prisons Roundabout, Aseda House Street, Asafo Interchange, Labour Roundabout and end at the Jubilee Park, where series of speeches shall be made to bring clarity to what the policy proposal entails.
According to Isham Alhassan, it has become necessary for the party to scale up activities to defuse desperate attempts by the governing New Patriotic Party to mislead the people in its stronghold about the potential for job creation, economic growth and improvement in security.
He noted that though there is no doubt what even the Secretary General of the Trades Union Congress, Dr Yaw Baah describes as a ‘game changer’ but because of the misinformation being spread by the NPP, which has already disappointed its support base, the NDC is compelled to reach out to the masses to explain for the buy in and support for NDC’s 2024 flagbearer.
The NDC Ashanti regional organizer, added that, John Mahama’s track record in Ashanti and by extension, Ghana as a whole, stands tall and assured that he is committed with his resolve to bring all hands-on deck to first restore hope, salvage the economy to create opportunity for jobs for the youth.
