Flagbearer hopeful of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has stated that no youthful person concerned about the state of the country will vote to maintain the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2024.
According to the former President, the reckless and excessive borrowing by the NPP has jeopardised the future of the country for the next 10 years.
Addressing branch and constituency executives in Yilo Krobo Constituency, as part of his 3-day tour of the Eastern Region, Mr Mahama, rallied the youth to vote back the NDC to save the situation.
He observed that, the country is choked with debts making it impossible to pay back.
“The NPP government is destroying the future of the youth with excessive borrowing. Those who took the loans, how many years are left for them to leave the surface of the earth to join God? The creditors will not give the future generation loans due to the failure of this government to settle its loans”.
“If you are concerned about your future don’t vote for the NPP government that has put us in this situation. Listen to your conscience, they have spoilt the future of Ghana. For the next ten years it will be difficult to go outside for loans. They have done enough damage to the country, they should pack out,” he said.
Mr Mahama, also touched Bryan Acheampong’s claim that the NPP, will never hand over power to the NDC.
Mr Mahama addressing party delegates in the Akuapem North and South Constituencies at Akropong in the Eastern region yesterday, said regardless of the stance taken by the NPP, the NDC will not underplay the role of God in the 2024 elections.
According to him, God had already decided the outcome of the 2024 elections and nobody can change it regardless of what they do.
“Don’t pay attention to some of the things being said by some people, because it is God’s plan, I go to Church and I have faith that when I kneel and pray, God speaks to me sometimes. God told me that it is our time, and He has already given us the power”.
“When God speaks, no one can change it so let’s continue to pray and believe in Ghanaians that whatever God has put in place will come to pass.”
The former president is in the Eastern Region to begin a three-day campaign tour. As part of the tour, he met delegates and branch executives of Okere.
The former President, also called on party supporters to keep a decent campaign and rather unite behind whoever emerges victorious as the focus is to win the 2024 elections.
Meanwhile, the Eastern Regional Executives of the NDC, have declared their support for the former President ahead of the party’s parliamentary and presidential primaries.
Addressing branch executives of Okere and Akuapem North and South constituencies at Akropong, the Eastern regional chairman of the party, Mark Oliver Kevor, who pledged a full endorsement for the former president, said Mr Mahama has already been tried and tested.
Mark Oliver Kevor said the party will use all means necessary to wrestle power from the NPP in 2024.
He was responding to the incendiary comments made by Bryan Acheampong
“The NPP is self-aware the time has come for John Mahama to be President, so it has resorted to intimidation. The NPP is threatening not to hand over power to the NDC in 2024. As regional chairman, I believe I have the support of other executives at the various levels, and so I say, we will also devise any means to snatch power from the governing NPP to John Mahama. We are ready as a party to match the NPP boot for boot.”
