The Mahama Fan Club, a group embedded in the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), has launched its campaign to have President John Mahama retained in the 2016 general elections.
The campaign dubbed ‘House-To-House’, would adopt the evidence-based approach to propagate what the group calls “the overwhelming achievements of the Mahama-led government”.
The club, which draws its membership from across the country and beyond, has over 800,000 members.
Launching the campaign in Accra on Tuesday, the national press secretary of the club, Mr. Prince Kawuunda, said sitting on the fences in the upcoming electioneering campaign would be a great disservice to the country.
He said the performance of President Mahama as president of the country demanded that he was given a second term to complete his transformational agenda.
According to Mr. Kawuunda, to retain the Mahama-led government in power, embarking on an effective house-to-house campaign and offering the electorate what the party would do if voted for would be their topmost priority in their engagements.
He said though the government was faced with challenges, the manner in which the President handled them was evident of his leadership qualities.
Mr. Kawuunda said the economic outlook of the country looked bright and that continuity was needed to accomplish that robust economy which awaits the country.
“President Mahama over the years has put up pragmatic measures to ensure Ghanaians lived in secured conditions by improving the lives of the citizenry and transforming Ghana through infrastructural development and that is what he intends to continue with,” he stated.
Mr. Kawuunda urged members of the club to unite and work in the interest of the party and engage in issue-based politicking to ensure a John Mahama victory in November.
A Senior Adviser to the group, Dr. M.M. Tabbika, on her part cautioned the club against violence but rather focus on the message.
She said the party would give out anybody who engaged in any violent conduct in their pursuit to propagate President John Mahama’s achievement.
Dr. Tabbika said there were enough evidence of the performance of the government with which they could campaign to retain the party in power.
