Former President and 2020 presidential candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama has urged party members to work hard to return the Congress to power in the next general elections.
Addressing the advocates of the NDC in the Western Region on Thursday October 14,2021 as part of his ‘thank you tour’, he assured that if the advocates work relentlessly for the party to win power, the party will return their efforts and not forget them.
“We urge you all to work hard and bring the party back to power,” he encouraged and stated, “When you work hard and we come Into office we won’t forget you, the party Shall not forget you”.
He added, “If you die for the party, the party will also die for you when we come into office”.
“Do that and we come into office we won’t forget you, we will reward you for your hard work when we come to power”.
He further demonstrated confidence that the NDC will win in 2024 elections with revived energy and commitment.
“When I said do or die, I meant we will work hard. I strongly believe that God will give us victory in the next elections,” optimistic Mahama noted.
“NDC will win the 2024 elections with revived energy,” he added.
Early in the week, he paid a visit to the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs to thank them.
Over there, he noticed that times are hard for Ghanaians under the Akufo-Addo administration.
He added that “This year many unions are unhappy with the negotiations that took place where a paltry 4 per cent was given to them” when those of Article 71 office holders have been given wider increment.”
“Even though you give free SHS you have no jobs for them to do when they come out. Times are hard and people are suffering, food prices are going up, everyday prices are increasing”. he stressed.
“These are things that are not going on well and I believe Nananom (Chiefs) will speak about it”. he said.
