Former President John Dramani Mahama has arrived in Tamale in the Northern Region to begin a five-day campaign tour of the region.
A statement issued and signed on Tuesday by spokesperson for Former President Mahama’s 2020 Campaign Team, James Agyenim-Boateng, said Mr Mahama will interact with delegates in the constituencies, ahead of the flagbearership elections of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in December.
It noted that last week, he was in the Central Region to inform delegates and members of the NDC of the on-going reforms in the party as well as efforts to strengthen its structures.
“Mr Mahama also says ‘a new NDC government will improve the Free SHS programme and make it better by abolishing the current shift (double track) system and re-introduce the more efficient three terms per academic year programme,” the statement said.
“We will also bring back the emphasis on skills training, technical and vocational education to provide students with more options, as they go forward with their choices in diverse career and aptitude paths,” it added.
