Thousands of Youth who called themselves “Heroes for Mahama” on Thursday poured out on the streets of Koforidua, the Eastern Regional capital for a float to salute President John Dramani Mahama for delivering his promises in the region.
The Four hour peaceful but massive floats began from Asokore through the Total Two filling station, the central police station and ended at the Koforidua Jackson’s Park.
The floaters were carrying placards with inscriptions “two more terms for Mahama”, “Kpong water project”, “Kyebi water project”, “roads and other infrastructural development in Eastern Region,” among others.
Speaking to the media, the Public Relations officer of the group, Roland Asamoah lamented that with the current government appointees in the Mahama led administration, Eastern Region had many appointees who were occupying prominent positions.
“We in the Eastern Region through the love by President Mahama can mention names like Julius Deborah, Madam Marietta Brew, Seth Tekper, Omane Boamah, Mavis Ama Frimpong and many more”
Mr. Asamoah added that Eastern Region was not left out in infrastructural development, adding that the region benefited more from the first batch of the cocoa roads, community Day Senior High School, as well as water project which were undertaken in the region.
As a result of the President’s kindness, he said the youth group “Heroes for Mahama” has decided to campaign to enable him continue the good work from which Eastern Region was getting its share of the national cake.
“We have no option than to push the President to be in office a second term for our region to be heard globally to attract investors” he added.
He urged the youth not to allow themselves to be used by any political party to create confusion during and after the election in order to protect the good image of the country’s democracy.
