Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that God made National Democratic Congress (NDC) to lose the 2016 general election in order to expose New Patriotic Party (NPP) lies and propaganda.

“God asked us to step aside in order to expose the lies and propaganda of the NPP,” he stated.

Former President Mahama said this when he joined thousands of the NDC supporters in a walk, dubbed “Unity Walk, in Tamale on Saturday.

The Unity Walk which was organised by the Northern Regional executives of the party in collaboration with some national executives, was meant to help unite the rank and file of the party in the region.

Former President Mahama indicated that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the NPP would have continued with their lies and deceit if he had not won the elections.

“Ghanaians would have said Nana Akufo-Addo would have reduce the fuel prices if he had won, he would have reduce electricity bills, if he had won and they would say Nana Addo would created jobs for Ghanaians if he had won” Mr Mahama stressed.

He entreated supporters to be thankful for the NDC defeat and that it would make Ghanaians to appreciate the good deeds of the NDC government.

The former President also commended the the Minority members of Parliament for holding the current government accountable to the people.

Mr Mahama said that it was imperative for the NDC members of Parliament to continue the good works by ensuring that the government lived up to its responsibilities.

Former President Mahama charged the rank and file of the party to put the defeat aside and prepare for the next general election.

“It is time for us to put aside the disagreement and strategies to win 2020 general elections,” he said.

The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, called on the government to ensure that the free Senior High School (SHS) did not deny any child of senior hig school education.

He warned that the Minority would hesitate to take every legal means to ensure that government offer quality education to all students.

The General Secretary of the NDC, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia appealed to all members of the party at all levels to bury their differences and join the fight to win the 2020 elections.
