Former President John Mahama received a rousing welcome on arrival at the Upper West Regional capital ahead of his tour of the region which begins today.
Mr Mahama arrived a day early to embark on a four-day tour of the Upper West Region from Wednesday to Saturday.
He was met by several thousands of motorbike riders amid joyous songs and dance, and was taken through the principal streets of Wa.
In a post on Facebook, Mr Mahama thanked the people of the region for welcoming him.
“Thank you, my brothers and sisters in Wa, for the tumultuous and energizing welcome into the Upper West Region. #JMandJane2020”
He is expected to meet with chiefs, opinion and religious leaders of the communities. The NDC presidential candidate will also address people in various communities during his tour of the Upper West Region.
Mr Mahama is expected to return to Accra on Sunday, ahead of the launch of his party’s manifesto for the 2020 elections.
