Former president John Dramani Mahama has stressed that he will develop the newly-created regions if the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) wins the 2020 general elections.
In a reported by Classfmonline.com sighted by YEN.com.gh, he indicated that the NDC is a party that is known for massive development across the country, and would not disappoint the people of the six new regions in terms of infrastructural development.
Mahama said creating new regions would not guarantee automatic development in those areas, adding that it was important that Ghanaians vote for the NDC in the 2020 general elections so it can continue its infrastructural development.

In addressing delegates of the NDC in the Sefwi-Bekwai Constituency of the Western Region as he started his four-day campaign tour of the region, Mahama intimated that the NDC is known for developing the country and promised to develop the Western North Region, whose creation, he said, was supported by the NDC.
“I know that by God’s grace, it will be an NDC government that will bring the needed development to the Western North,” he said.
On the upcoming presidential primary of the NDC on 26 January 2019, Mr Mahama urged the delegates to endorse his candidature to enable him to bring the NDC back to power.
