The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani
Mahama, has began a four-day tour of the Volta Region.
He will subsequently proceed to the Oti Region for a three-day tour of that region.
While in both regions, Mr Mahama will meet with traditional rulers, opinion leaders,
organised labour, supporters, members and activists of the NDC.
In the Oti Region, he is expected to highlight the NDC’s superior record of infrastructure
development across the country as well as re-state his commitment to develop the six new
regions by providing, among others, regional hospitals and a public university in each new
The former president’s visit comes after the just-ended voter registration exercise which
saw the government’s deployment of armed soldiers, immigration and other security
personnel in both regions to harass and intimidate eligible voters from getting their names
on the register.
