President John Dramani Mahama has stated that his first term in office has been very challenging, yet positive and fruitful.
According to him, since he assumed office in 2013, he has been confronted with various challenges including a prolonged electoral dispute, macro-economic challenges, power crisis, market fires among others.
“My first term in office has been a very challenging but positive and fruitful one. In all the challenges that we have faced, God has created an opportunity for us to lay a foundation for the sustainable development of our dear nation Ghana.”
The president was speaking at National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) campaign launch at Cape Coast in the Central Region today.
Former President John Rawlings who was also in attendance reminded the party of more challenges yet to face them in the elections and urged the party not to underestimate the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“The task ahead of you won’t be as easy task. I will reserve what I have to say till after the elections when I will come round the country to share with you how I think we could restore the kind of strength that can take us well into the future. There are certain weaknesses that we need to deal with,” he said.
