Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama has promised Ghanaians an economy that works and creates opportunities for all Ghanaians and not just for a few when he is given the mandate in December.
Mr Mahama who was speaking at a Townhall Meeting in Kumasi to Party sympathizers said one thing he is looking forward to changing is the dominance of foreign businesses in the country. The NDC’s flagbearer said most of the top businesses in the country are owned by foreigners leaving Ghanaians with very little stake in the economy.
“Our economy does not work for Ghanaians, but it should work for everyone. You hear that the economy has grown by this or that percent but how beneficial has it been to Ghanaians”, he asked.
He said his Party when elected will work towards growing Ghanaian indigenous businesses so that the people of Ghana can benefit more from the economy.
Mr Mahama said unlike the NPP, his government will not hound any Ghanaian out of business merely because they are not members of the NDC.
“We are all Ghanaians and when Ghanaians are employed, it helps me as President” he disclosed.
The NDC Presidential Candidate called on Ghanaians to vote for John Mahama and the NDC because of the superior policy proposals, many of which emanated from the people of Ghana themselves.
He also promised to implement all the promises made for the benefit of all Ghanaians when given the mandate to govern.
Among the audience were teachers, spare parts dealers, contractors, doctors, chiefs, okada riders and tricycle drivers and teeming party supporters.
Some of the notable speakers at the Townhall meeting included National Chairman Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, MP for Asutifi South Eric Opoku and MP for Asawase Alhaji Muntaka Mohammed.
