Fishermen in the Central region have announced their support for John Mahama to take charge as president of Ghana from 2020.
They explained that they are convinced Mahama can save them from the current challenges they face under the current New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration.
The fishermen have therefore pledged to do everything to ensure that Mahama wins the election, so he could transform their lives.

This, the farmers explained, is because they have been out of business since Mahama lost power in 2016, because the current government has refused to continue some of the projects he initiated.
The chief fisherman of Apam, Ebusuapanyin Martey, who spoke on behalf of the fishermen, expressed disappointment in the current government’s inability to provide them with enough premix fuel and subsidized outboard motors, which was initiated by the former National Democratic Congress (NDC) government.
He stated that the price increment of premix fuel and outboard motors has made their livelihood difficult, and they therefore added, “even if we need to go deep into the sea to bring Mahama back, we will”.
Former president John Dramani Mahama, who was on a campaign tour of the Central Region, visited Gomoa West with his entourage to interact with drivers, fishermen, market women as well as stakeholders, to seek their votes ahead of the 2020 polls.
Mynewsgh.com reports that he expressed disappointment about the collapsing fishing industry under the incumbent government despite several promises it made promising to revamp it when he returns to power.
