NDC targets 13 constituencies together with 1 million popular votes in the Ashanti Region
Flagbearer of the ruling National Democratic Congress, President John Mahama, has continued to express great confidence in his hopes of winning the 2016 elections together with other political aspirants of his party.
Still on his 4-day tour of the New Patriotic Party’s stronghold – the Ashanti region, the President said he is hoping that the NDC captures about 13 parliamentary seats.
Mahama made this statement while speaking to party supporters after a health work in Asawase. The NDC flagbearer stated that based on his findings, as well as the NDC’s performance in the Ashanti Region, it is possible for the party to grab nine more constituencies in the region. This will make a total of 13 when added to the four parliamentary seats being occupied by members of the NDC.
Mahama who is very confident that his administration has done well for the region pointed out that, although the Ashanti Region has since been known as the stronghold of the major opposition, residents are going to vote this time around based on performance. He stressed that the amount of work he has done will surely reflect in the Ashanti votes.
NDC targets 13 constituencies of the Ashanti Region together with her 1 million popular votes target in the region. This, if achieved will break record in the party’s history.
Making reference to the development of infrastructure (roads, schools, water, hospitals) across the country, President Mahama explained that every region is enjoying the good works. Pointing particularly to Kumasi, he said that one of the biggest markets is being constructed in the town, considering the fact that it is the second largest city in the country.
Speaking further, the President Mahama confidently said that they have already won the presidency. He however, encouraged party supporters not to relent in their vigorous campaign to ensure that the winning gap between them and the NPP is wide enough to shut out any possibility of lawsuits after the elections.
