Former president John Dramani Mahama was spotted shedding tears during the launch of (National Democratic Congress) NDC's Electronic Fund-Raising programme to seek campaign money from well-wishers and sympathizers.
National Executives of the party, former government appointees, constituency branch executives, and all well-wishers were present for the fundraising at the International Trade Fair Centre.
The opposition party launched the electronic payment platform to enable party members and sympathizers to contribute financially towards their 2020 campaign.
The video that is fast going viral captures the former president in a very solemn mood as an emotional worship song was being played.
He did not mention what drove him to tears on the big stage but it is thinkable that the song compelled him to reflect on the ups and downs he has had in his political career and what he would face in this election year.
The opposition party launched an electronic payment platform to enable party members and sympathizers to contribute financially towards their 2020 campaign.
Many found the development rather ridiculous as the opposition party has been out of power for three years and in existence for decades.
It would be presumed that such a big party would have strong systems in place to fund its agendas but the recent developments have gone a long way to show that the reality is far from this.

In a related development, flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama on Thursday, January 16, 2020, said he will ensure technical and vocational education in Ghana is free when he is voted into power again.
According to the former president, he will also make sure all the impediments that make technical and vocational education unattractive are cleared.
He stated that he will also ensure technical and vocational education become attractive for students among others.
