The Omanhene of Mehame traditional area in the Asutifi South constituency of the Ahafo
Region, Nana Owusu Kontoh II, has described the presidential candidate of the National
Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, as a trusted leader who has the
skills and experience to provide prosperity for all Ghanaians.
The chief has therefore endorsed the presidential candidature of Mr Mahama and has urged
electorates to vote for him in the December 7, 2020 general elections.
Speaking at a durbar at Mehame when Mr Mahama called on him as part of a two-day tour
of the Ahafo Region on Friday, Nana Owusu Kontoh II expressed his gratitude for the
numerous development projects that the Mahama administration gave to Mehame and
other communities in the Asutifi South consituency .
“I have a good road, electricity, ICT centre, health centre and nursing training college,
among other infrastructure developments and they are all because of Mr Mahama and
Alhaji Collins Dauda, who is our MP”, he said.
Nana Owusu Kontoh was concerned that a number of projects began by the Mahama
administration, including a maternity centre, have been abandoned by the government.
He therefore appealed to Mr Mahama to complete those projects for them when he wins
the December 7 presidential election.
To show appreciation for the sterling performance of the then Mahama government in the
Mehame traditional area, Nana Owusu Kontoh enstooled Mr Mahama as the Nkousohene
of the area, under the stool name Nana Oseadeeyo Boafuor Mahama.
