Flagbearer and Leader of the largest opposition party the National Democracy Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has said the next NDC administration will end the high level of ethnic divisiveness and insecurity in the country.
According to John Mahama who was speaking at Wa, the vast opportunities in the country under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo have been a preserve of a selected few based on their religious affiliation, ethnic origin, and political affiliation.
“I can assure you that the NDC will restore the peace and unity of this country, and when we come into power the opportunities of this country are not going to be available to a few selected elite people. The opportunities of this country are going to be available to every Ghanaian, notwithstanding your religious affiliation, notwithstanding your ethnic origin, notwithstanding your political affiliation. The opportunities our country will be available to every Ghanaian, because after all, no one is more Ghanaian than the other, all of us are Ghanaians” he stressed.
The former president who also spoke on the high level of insecurity in the country decried what he called ‘praised armed robbery’ which has become a daily occurrence.
He said the country has always been secured and safe under an NDC government but the same cannot be said today, “since NDC left office, every day there are countless stories of armed robberies. NDC is going to come and put an end to those praising armed robberies that have been taking place, he emphasized.
John Mahama has since pledged to re-equip the joint police and military task forces to provide constant patrol on our highways to clump down on the menace.
