The Ashanti Region Youth Wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it’ll be backing no other candidate than John Dramani Mahama till the party returns back to power.
In a statement, the regional Youth Organiser Osman Nabali Abdullah insisted that the three-time Presidential Candidate is the only one who can rescue Ghanaians from the current economic hardship under the current government.
The statement was in counter to another statement release by a group calling itself NDC youth in Ashnati region accusing Mr Mahama of neglecting the region after he won power in 2012 and therefore will have nothing to do with him in 2024.
“We will not dignify the content of their statement because, the [Ashanti] region does not know the existence of any such group,” Osman Nabali Abdullah countered.
“For the avoidance of doubt, there is no Youth group in Ashanti that operates by that name. This is the first time of any public statement by the said faceless group, and we are not surprised that their name just popped up at the time that Former President Mahama is in town.
“One thing that, we in the Ashanti Youth Wing want to be known to all and sundry is that, the brand of H.E John Dramani Mahama is too powerful to be soiled with such a childish release. We want to restate that, as far as the Regional Youth Wing is concerned, it is either H.E. John Mahama or no one else – John Maham till we win.”
