PRESIDENT John Dramani Mahama has stated that the massive development projects executed by his government will be enough for Ghanaians to give him a second four-year term.
He has touted his achievements in infrastructure projects and other initiatives in all the places he visited to back his claims.
President Mahama stated these when he addressed the chiefs and people of Hohoe in the Volta Region, as part of his regional ‘Accounting to the people and changing of lives tour’.
He has so far visited the Western, Central and Eastern regions on similar tours.
President Mahama explained that the 1992 Constitution allows all the sitting Presidents two four-year terms, citing Presidents John Rawlings and John Agyekum Kufuor who ruled for eight years.
According to him, his tour to various regions to inaugurate and showcase the various projects his government has undertaken since assuming office is not political campaigning, but to give account of his rule to the chiefs and people.
The President praised the chiefs and people of Hohoe for coming out in their numbers to welcome and to show their unflinching support for him.
He also commended the people of Nkonya and Alavanyo for the relative peace in their area, and urged them to sustain the peace for more development to come to the area.
President Mahama stated that his government was committed to extending development to all corners of the country, to make life easy for the people, and said Hohoe would have 10 kilometres of asphalt roads.
In a speech read on his behalf Togbiga Gabusu, Paramount chief of Gbi Traditional area, thanked the President for the visit.
He said the traditional area was grateful for its share of the projects but appealed to the President to see to the gaps of development in some areas.
