Mahama resumes tour today having completed the burial arrangements of his late mother
President Mahama would resume his ‘Accounting to the People’ tour in the Greater Accra Region Today [Tuesday]. Having suspended his tour following the demise of his mother Hajia Abiba Nnaba, the President is back to continue form where he stopped.
Mother of President Mahama, Hajia Abiba Nnaba died on June 14, which was the same day the president landed in Accra to begin the sixth phase of his tour. Mahama had begun his tour in Accra when word of his mother’s death got to him on June 15. He then suspended it to mourn the passing of his late mother.
Mahama resumes tour in Accra today having completed the burial arrangements of his late mother. He is expected to start with an interaction with traders at the Madina Market before paying a courtesy call on the chief and elders of Madina Zong.
He is equally expected to inspect ongoing works at the New Atomic District Hospital and the Ridge Hospital, as well as go on a courtesy call on the Amasaman Mantse. The President is also scheduled to inspect the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) terminal in Ofankor, before moving to Osu, and Ga Mashie, where he will inspect ongoing works at the Ridge Hospital.
Mahama has been hugely criticised by various opposition groups who were against his ‘Accounting to the People’ tour. He had been accused of abusing his incumbency by hiding behind his tour to campaign ahead of the November elections.
The President had debunked the claims explaining that his tour was only meant to interact with Ghanaians, and show what the government has been doing for the people. He had stressed that his tour was not a re-election strategy.
President Mahama is also expected to visit Nima and interact with the residents during his tour.
