Former President and National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential aspirant, John Dramani Mahama has promised to give GHc40 to each of the over 30,000 delegates as transportation fare to support the May 13 primaries.
This was made known in a statement released and signed by his Spokesperson, Joyce Bawah. In the press statement, the support was to show appreciation for their undiluted love for John Mahama.
“There most be no discrimination in the disbursement of the GH¢40 per delegate T&T money,” Mahama’s campaign manager Prof Joshua Professor Alabi is quoted in a statement.
The statement said in this period of economic difficulties such support will help the delegates travel to polling centres easily to boost voter turnout. “The campaign believes supporting the delegates to travel to the centres will help ensure a high voter turn-out as every voter will be empowered to vote and return home without financial impediments in these difficult economic times,” the statement said.
