Former President of Ghana, and flagbearer of the opposition NDC, John Dramani Mahama, has assured Ghanaians that he will not discriminate against any tribe or region when voted into power as President on December 7 2020.
According to him, he will be a father-for-all, and would not give preferential treatment to some regions over others, just because they voted for him.
The former President’s comments are in direct reference to the outcry which has greeted the massive deployment of military tools to Ketu South, which government describes as an attempt to prevent non-Ghanaians from registering to vote in the 2020 election.
“a government that will not accept only regions that vote for them as populated by Ghanaians.
That is the government I will lead to transform our country into a prosperous one in which all
will be treated equally and with respect”. He said.
“When our forebears founded Ghana, they did so in the singular belief that we would live in unity and harmony, each contributing their quota to our nation’s development. They did not envisage that in a later generation, some leaders would arrogate unto himself the authority to unilaterally declare other of our citizens non-Ghanaian simply because of historical voting patterns”. He added.
