Otumfuo Osei Tutu II , king of the Ashanti kingdom has urged President Mahama to continue to sell his “Changing Lives; Transforming Ghana” achievements and good works to the electorates.
At a meeting in the manhyia place earlier today where President Mahama called on the Asantehene at the manhyia palace, the Asante monarch, Otumfuo listed projects such as the Kumasi Central market, the over one thousand hospital beds to be added to the Ashanti region’s hospital bed stock few months from now, the road and water projects, the military hospital, among others as achievements the president must continue selling to electorates.
President John Mahama as part of his efforts to seek re-election in the upcoming December 7 General elections, is on a campaign tour in the Ashanti Region where his ubiquitous presence, by virtue of his humbling persona and his extraordinary achievements in the Ashanti Region is said to have sent down shivers down the spine of the New Patriotic Party in the Ashanti Region.
The Ashanti Region is the traditional stronghold of the New Patriotic Party but political analysts and pollsters have indicated that the infrastructural and developmental projects instituted in the region by President Mahama is most likely a factor that was going to shore up the fortunes of the NDC in the upcoming elections. The NDC have set a target of 1 million votes, how ever it is said that the NDC is likely to achieve and surpass this target.
