The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, expressed satisfaction with his campaign, days to the December 7, general elections.
According to him, despite the strenuous nature of the campaign due to the COVID-19 scourge, the feedback from electorates was refreshing.
“It’s on the home stretch now. We have run a good campaign and I’m quite satisfied. We have covered a lot basis,” Mahama told Joy News’ Emefa Apawu.
Series of polls published ahead of the elections had ruled out any chances for the former president and his party to win the elections.
The latest published by the Kumasi Technical University said the incumbent President Nana Akufo-Addo would garner 56.6 percent of the valid votes cast while Mahama would manage 38.8 percent.
