A Message from John Dramani Mahama, Presidential Candidate of the NDC
Hello, my brothers and sisters!
I am John Dramani Mahama, Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress, NDC.
I come before you to ask for your vote.
John Dramani Mahamaon Friday
Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang and I rededicate ourselves to the expansion of economic freedom and opportunities, by providing incentives for small businesses to grow, encourage local community development and build an environment for digital transformation and domestic manufacturing to support job creation.
Together we can and we will build a nation that creates opportunities for all of us, not a privileged few; that will improve our living standards and reduce the hardship brought upon us by this government.
Just like you, I believe everybody, all of us, should have access to healthcare. This is why the NDC will be rolling out a Free Primary Healthcare Plan for all!
Just like you, I believe mothers are sacred, and they deserve quality time with their newborn babies. This is why we are increasing the maternity leave for mothers to four months.
Just like you, I believe women are equal to men, and their voice should always be heard. This is why I chose Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, as my running mate.
Just like you, I believe young people are right to expect to live in a modern, vibrant Ghana.
This is why we will transform this country into a knowledge-based economy, driving our development through a digitalised platform that provides millions of opportunities for our young people to harness their talents, skills and potentials.
As Social Democrats, the National Democratic Congress subscribes to a compassionate political philosophy that seeks to create opportunities for all to develop to their fullest potential.
