The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, on Tuesday began a two-day working visit to the Western North Region.
Mr Mahama will during the tour thank delegates and supporters of the party for their support and resounding endorsement in last February’s presidential primaries which elected him as the flagbearer of the NDC, interact with communities and pay courtesy calls on the chiefs and elders of the area.
He will in particular meet and interact with cocoa and other crop farmers, traders, and other community members.
From the Western North Region, former President Mahama will proceed to the Ahafo Region, after a day’s break to attend the 7th John Evans Atta Mills Commemorative Lecture.
A statement issued by Mr Mahama’s Special Aide, Joyce Bawa Mogtari said: “many road projects commenced and others awarded on contract by his [Mahama] government have been stopped and abandoned by the Akufo-Addo government.”
“Many communities in the Western North Region are currently faced with deplorable road conditions that are affecting not only the evacuation of cocoa and other farm produce, but also access to health and other emergency services,” the statement added.
