The Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, will resume his tour of the Bono Region today.
He will interact with chiefs, farmers, okada riders, religious and community leaders, among other groups and highlight portions of the NDC’s 2020 manifesto, dubbed “the People’s Manifesto”, which addresses the specific needs of the Bono Region.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Campaign Spokesperson, James Agyenim Boateng.
The statement said Mr Mahama will outline plans to increase the earnings of farmers. Other plans he will address include setting up a cashew development board to support farmers, state-sponsored apprenticeship programmes for the youth, legalising the okada business and providing Free Primary Health care which seeks to remove cost as a barrier to primary healthcare.
Last Tuesday, Mr Mahama and his Running Mate, Professor Naana Opoku-Agyemang, suspended their tours of the Bono and Central Regions following challenges with the EC’s Provisional Voters Register on exhibition.
