Mr. Mahama noted that a healthy nation requires a healthy workforce, hence the need for the free primary health care for all.

He was speaking at a dialogue with professionals organized by the Centre for Social Justice at its 3rd Leadership Dialogue series in Accra.

On gender issues, former President Mahama said he will maintain at least 30% appointment of women in his government if elected.

He urged women to take up positions when the opportunity avails itself.

Under the Party’s proposed ‘Big Push’ policy, Former President Mahama said Ghanaian companies will be given incentives to boost their businesses which will in turn offer more sustainable job opportunities for the youth.
