Former President John Mahama is billed to lead a march on the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) 24-hour Economy policy, scheduled for Wednesday, January 24, 2024.
Initially slated for December 2023, the walk was rescheduled due to the District Level Elections.
The Ashanti Region’s NDC leadership, as confirmed by Secretary Dr. Frank Amoakohene, has said that all arrangements are in order for the event.
The purpose of the walk is to generate awareness about the policy among the region’s residents.
Aparr from Mr Mahana, other prominent figures expected to participate in the march include NDC’s National Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketia, and regional executives led by Regional Chairman Augustus Andrews Nana Akwasi.
The procession will traverse Kumasi’s main streets, culminating at the Kumasi Jubilee Park, where speakers, including John Mahama, will address the audience.
“The planned route for the walk is as follows: Aboabo Post Office, through Pelele to On-the-ran to Manhyia Hospital, proceeding to Alabar Street, Kejetia Roundabout, Hello FM, A-life, Asafo Overpass, Labour Roundabout, and concluding at Jubilee Park,” stated a press release.
As part of his agenda, the NDC flagbearer will embark on the ‘Building the Ghana We Want Tour’, engaging with diverse community sectors such as traders, organised labour, artisans, and students.
These community interactions aim to provide an opportunity for the former president to articulate his vision, address community concerns, and gather direct feedback from grassroots perspectives.
