According to him, he deserves another term because he has done only a term in office-a term which part was taken by a court litigation yet the party[NDC] has performed so well despite the challenges they encountered.
Speaking to a charged crowd at Hohoe as part of his Accounting to the People’s Tour, President Mahama said, the constitution of the Republic of Ghana mandates him to request for another term in office just like his predecessors in the persons of Former Presidents Jerry John Rawlings, and John Agyekum Kufour.
He posited that, his boss who he took over from due to his untimely death, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills could have equally being given an eight year mandate hence, Ghanaians should give him that mandate to continue with his good works.
“I have done one term in office, and part of that term was taken by court litigation; And even then we have executed our mandate satisfactorily and am certain that, Ghanaians will give me the second term to make eight years (8) as required by the constitution.”
A hopeful President Mahama told the gathering that he was sure of victory come the general elections. He also assured them of his commitment to transform the region and Hohoe to be precise.
“I wish to assure you that as I continue my mandate, and I know that the people of Ghana will renew that mandate; by the time I leave office in 2021, we would have transformed the area so it becomes a commercial centre to boost trading and business activities.”
President John Dramani Mahama urged the people to believe in the country and continue to do their part to ensure that Ghana continues to prosper.
He thanked the people for showing him love and coming in their numbers to partake in his tour.
“…All of us should continue to do our good works and be dedicated to our country and I assure you that Ghana is going to be a land of prosperity; Ghana is a country that God has blessed and we should recognize the blessings that he has bestowed on us and when we do that, he will bestow more blessings on us,” President Mahama said.
