Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama will today, November 20 visit the Asante-Akyem North Constituency.
The visit is part of the flagbearer’s campaign tour of the Ashanti Region.
Mr. Mahama was scheduled to visit the Asante Akyem North Constituency earlier but for the untimely death of former President Rawlings, he had to cut short his tour of the region to return to Accra.
The NDC’s flagbearer upon his arrival will first pay a courtesy call on the Omanhene of the Agogo Traditional Area, Nana Kwame Akuoko Sarpong.
He is also expected to address the farmers, traders, and party supporters in the constituency.
His campaign tour of the region will focus on key plans in the People’s Manifesto, such as plans to create decent and sustainable jobs for the youth, the implementation of universal access to healthcare dubbed the ‘Free Primary Healthcare’, funding the largest skills empowerment programme under the NDC’s National Apprenticeship Programme and the Free Technical and Vocational Education and Training (Free T-VET).
