18 Reasons Why Ghanaians Should Vote For John Dramani Mahama In The 2020 Election

Prior to the ravaging coronavirus pandemic, the pendulum of good favour was swinging in the favour of former President and leader of the biggest opposition party in the country, John Dramani Mahama.

However, Nana Akufo Addo’s carelessness in taking pragmatic measures in dealing with Covid-19 even before the country recorded its first case and how he has cunningly redeemed himself with measures to curb it after it started spreading in Ghana means John Dramani Mahama has a lot to do if he wants to return to power.

The subtle campaign strategies Nana Akufo Addo and his ruling government has been transmitting through the Covid-19 Presidential Speech to the nation and the fact restrictions have prevented other political parties from holding rallies and doing vigorous campaign has given the NDC a tall mountain to climb, but there’s a glimmer of hope as this article will soon point out.

Recently, the National Communication Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi outlined some key factors that could turn the fortunes of the country around if Ghanaians vote for John Dramani Mahama.

So here’s why you must vote for John Dramani Mahama more than ever. The NDC says they will;

1. Pay all customers of the collapsed financial institutions whose monies are locked-up in full and restore indigenous Ghanaian participation in the financial sector.

2. Reduce the size of government by at least forty (40) ministers to reduce government expenditure and channel those resources into the productive sectors of the economy for the benefit of Ghanaians.

3. Provide free Technical and Vocational Education (TVET) from the second cycle to Tertiary level to build the human resource base of the nation for industrial development, entrepreneurship and job creation.

4. Institute a National Apprenticeship Program in line with his vision of rapid industrialization and job creation for the country.

5. Scrap the 50% increment in the Communication Service Tax to reduce the cost of telephoning and data. This will reduce the cost of living and the cost of doing business in the country.

6. Construct a regional hospital for each of the six (6) newly-created regions and the Western Region to improve access to quality and efficient health care delivery.

8. Take healthcare to the doorsteps of the people by building a first of its kind “Onipa Nua” Hospital Ship and deploy it to provide medical services to the inaccessible riverine and fishing communities on the inland Volta waterways.

Additionally, the next Mahama government will rehabilitate the “Onuador” mobile vans that have been abandoned by the Akufo-Addo government and procure more, to provide medical outreach services in underserved and hard to reach areas in all the 16 regions of the country.

9. Construct two (2) new international-standard Infectious Diseases Centers and two (2) additional international research centers.

10. Abolish the dreaded double-track system of secondary education through an emergency and massive infrastructure drive. This will ensure a conducive environment and one-track qualitative learning experience for SHS students.

11. Establish University Campuses in each of the six (6) newly-created regions.

12. Abolish the mandatory national service and obnoxious licensure exams for teacher trainees and restore the automatic employment of teacher trainee graduates. Let me state unequivocally that no teacher trainee graduate will be denied posting or employment under the next Mahama government.

Additionally, the promotion and welfare of teachers will be prioritized by the next Mahama government.

13. Restore the automatic employment of Nursing Trainee graduates. Again let me state unequivocally, that no nursing trainee graduate will be denied posting or employment under the next Mahama government.

14. Restore the distribution of free cocoa fertilizer and chemicals to cocoa farmers to boost cocoa yield and improve the welfare of cocoa farmers.

15. Complete the Eastern Corridor roads, dualize the Aflao, Cape Coast and Kumasi roads among others.

16. Complete all abandoned or uncompleted hospital and health projects, educational projects, road projects and other infrastructural projects in the country.

17. Punish corruption and end the practice of nepotism.
