Despite the donation by some head porters (kayayei) to the campaign of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, thousands of porter in the Kejetia market have declared their support from John Mahama and the NDC in the upcoming elections.
According to a report by UltimateFMOnline.com, the kayayei claim that they have decided to support John Mahama because he is their kinsman.
"We will vote for John Mahama, because we like him," porters from Savelugu said.
Their new stance, however, differs from earlier reports which suggested that the National President of the Head Porters’ Association, Adiza Zongo Pioneer, had assured that she and all kayayei across the country would vote massively for the NPP.
