Former President John Mahama has pledged to continue with projects started by the current government if he is given the chance to lead the country after the 2024 general election.
Addressing the Bono Regional House of Chiefs in Sunyani on his Thank You Tour, the 2020 Flagbearer of the NDC accused the government of neglecting projects started by his administration thereby causing financial loss to the State.
Former President Mahama was accompanied by the 2020 Vice Presidential Candidate of the NDC, Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang and some National and Regional Executives of the party when he paid a courtesy call on the Bono Regional House of Chiefs.
It was to seek the blessing of the House as he began the Bono Regional leg of his Thank You Tour. In his address, the President of the Bono Regional House of Chiefs appealed to Mr Mahama to endeavour to continue projects started by the previous governments to ensure continuity of developmental initiatives if he came back to power in the 2024 general election.
He also called on the government to set up a Committee to investigate the violence that occurred in the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
Former President Mahama thanked the people of the Bono Region for showing support to the NDC during the 2020 elections.
Touching on the issue of abandoned projects, he accused the current Akufo Addo led administration of neglecting projects started by his administration and pledged to do better if given the nod in 2024.
On job creation, Mr Mahama insisted that the current government has not done enough.
“The NDC is open to dialogue on youth employment to address challenges in that area,” he stated.
The team also paid a courtesy call on the Bono Regional Chief Imam, where special prayers were said for Former President Mahama and the NDC.
