His running mate, Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, has also suspended her tour in the Central region for the same reason.
Members of the NDC have raised red flags over the exhibition of the voters’ register, hence its decision to address the said anomalies.
These were contained in a statement signed by Mr Mahama’s spokesperson, James Agyenim Boateng.
Read the statement below:
Meanwhile, the Bono Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Kwame Baffoe (Abronye), has jabbed Mr Mahama following his decision to call off his in the region, saying to avoid “disgrace” because he is unhappy with the turnout after his visit to Sunyani Odumasi.
Mr Mahama, the National Democratic Congress’ flagbearer for the 2020 election, announced he was cutting short his campaign tour due to several complaints with regard[s to anomalies in the ongoing voter exhibition exercise.

However, Abronye, in a statement, said: “It must be noted empathically that the main reason for cutting short his tour in the region is that, yesterday [Monday, 21 September 2020] after visiting Sunyani Odumasi around 1 a.m., John Mahama was not encouraged about the turnout and for that matter, in a meeting held at Esubett with a session of his regional executives, he told them that to avoid any disgrace, he has to return to Accra and come back later after a better mobilisation has been done”.
