2020 Presidential Candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has commenced the phase two of his ‘Thank you’ nationwide tour .
The tour which started on Friday, September 3, 2021 took the former Ghanaian leader to the Western North region.
The ‘Thank You’ tour is an opportunity for the former President to show appreciation to Ghanaians for their votes in the 2020 general elections.
Mr Mahama started his nationwide ‘Thank You’ tour in the Upper East Regional capital, Bolgatanga, continued to Walewale in the North East Region, Tamale as well as the Savannah and Upper West regions in the first phase of the tour.
During his tour, the former President held meetings with religious, traditional and opinion leaders, addressed regional and constituency executives as well as party faithful. He also interacted with the media.
He will be accompanied by the NDC’s national executive members and regional executive members to interact with chiefs, queens and party supporters.
Out of the nine constituencies in the region, the NDC won six seats.
