MAHAMA STARTS CAMPAIGN TOUR IN VOLTA TODAY
From Samuel Agbewode, Ho
President John Dramani Mahama, who is also the Presidential Candidate of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) will start a three day campaign tour of the Volta region from today, October 3, 2012, where he would address a number of durbars in his honour.
The President is expected to use the period in the region to canvass for votes in the Volta region, which is the “World Bank” of the ruling party.
The President would start his tour of the region from Juapong in the North Tongu District through to Peki, Kpeve in the South Dayi District, Dzolo-Kpuita, Kpedze in the newly created Ho-West District and back to Ho, where he would inspect progress of work on the Ho-Tanyigbe-Nyive and Atikpui roads.
The Head of Communication at the Presidency, Mr. Koku Anyidoho, who made this known on a local radio station in Ho, Volta Star FM, said the President would also inaugurate classroom blocks and other infrastructure provided under the leadership of the late President, John Evans Atta Mills at Mawuli School and OLA Girls, all in Ho.
Mr. Anyidoho pointed out that the second day of the President’s visit to the region would experience the launch of the NDC Manifesto at Ho, to lay a firm foundation for the election.
He continued that the 3rd day of the President’s visit would lead him to the southern part of the region, as durbars would be held in his honour, noting that the President would emphasis on the need for the people of the Volta region to give him the same support enjoyed by the former President Jerry John Rawlings and the late President Atta Mills.
Mr. Anyidoho stressed that the President will effectively market the achievements of the government and plans to deepen the development process in the Volta region and the entire nation, when President Mahama wins the election, adding that the party appreciates the vital role the people of the Volta region continue to play in the electoral process of the country.
The Communications Director at the Presidency disclosed that just after the three day campaign tour of the President which ends on Friday, he would start touring the Northern part of the Volta region, starting from next week Monday, and would visit places such as Jasikan, Kadjebi, Krachi- Nkwanta, Dambai and Kete-Krachi.
However, the Communication Director at the Presidency did not mention whether the President would inspect work on the Sogakope –Ho- Fume road, which the late President Atta Mills cut the sod for the second phase of work to begin.
