In other news, former president John Dramani Mahama also resumed his campaign tour of the Ashanti Region on Friday, November 20, 2020.

He is scheduled to meet with traditional and religious leaders, party members, and other identifiable groups in the region during the tour.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwame Zu on Thursday, November 19, 2020.

Mr. Mahama also called off his six-day campaign of the region last week following the demise of NDC founder, ex-President Jerry John Rawlings.

“The Ashanti Regional Secretariat of the NDC announces for the information of the rank and file of our great party and the people of Ashanti Region that the leader and flagbearer of the NDC, and Ghana’s next President, H.E John Dramani Mahama will from Friday, November 20, 2020, continue his campaign tour of the Ashanti Region for the 2020 elections,” the statement announced.
