Former President John Dramani Mahama has pleaded with delegates and members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to release their educated children to be trained as polling agents for the party ahead of the 2024 general elections.
Mr Mahama explained that the 2024 election will be crucial hence there is a need for the agents to be trained sufficiently and also resourced enough to carry out the mandate effectively.
He announced that the agents are going to be trained five times before the elections to ensure that they are well-equipped with the right knowledge and skills to carry out the exercise
“Open your eyes at the polling stations like eagle eyes,” he said while interacting with delegates of the NDC at Dormaa East on Monday, March 13
He added “we know that you all have children who have been educated, we want you to release them to us so that we train them five times before we vote. This 2024 election is not a joke, it is boot to boot, it is do-or-die.”
