The Omanhene of Mehame traditional area in the Asutifi South constituency of the Ahafo Region, Nana Owusu Kontoh II, has described the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Mahama, as a trusted leader.
He said the former president has the skills and experience to provide prosperity for all Ghanaians.
The chief has, therefore, endorsed the presidential candidature of Mr Mahama and has urged the electorate to vote for him in the 7 December 2020 general elections.
Speaking at a durbar at Mehame when Mr Mahama called on him, as part of a two-day tour of the Ahafo Region on Friday, 2 October 2020, Nana Owusu Kontoh II expressed his gratitude for the numerous development projects that the Mahama administration gave to Mehame and other communities in the Asutifi South constituency.
“I have a good road, electricity, ICT centre, health centre and nursing training college, among other infrastructure developments and they are all because of Mr Mahama and Alhaji Collins Dauda, who is our MP”, he said.
Nana Kontoh express concerns that a number of projects began by the Mahama administration, including a maternity centre, have been abandoned by the government.
He, therefore, appealed to Mr Mahama to complete those projects for them if he wins the December 7 presidential election.
To show appreciation for the sterling performance of the then Mahama government in the Mehame traditional area, Nana Owusu Kontoh enstooled Mr Mahama as the Nkousohene of the area, under the stool name Nana Oseadeeyo Boafuor Mahama.
