Former Central regional minister, Ama Benyiwa-Doe has lauded former president Mahama’s leadership as the NDC prepares for the 2020 elections.
According to the one time National women organizer of the party, the former president has demonstrated a strong unifying character after winning the party’s flagbearership slot.
Madam Ama Benyiwa-Doe recounted this in the wake of accusations by some New Patriotic Party (NPP) elements that the NDC and John Dramani Mahama as its leader have neglected the one time fire brand women organizer of the party.
Speaking on Pampaso a political talk show on Radiogold905.com, Ama Benyiwa-Doe said, Mr Mahama was always in touch with her throughout her predicament contrary to claims that the former president neglected her on her sick bed. She said John Mahama personally visited her at home.
” I was an ordinary member in the party but John Mahama never took me for granted. Occasionally he was sending something to me.”
She reposed confidence in the former president stating he has what it takes to annex the presidency again considering the lackluster performance of the Nana Akuffo Addo led administration.
She noted the former president’s footprints are dotted across the breath and length of the country in terms of socio-economic development.
This she stressed will translate into the needed votes for John Dramani Mahama to secure the presidency.
Commenting on what specifically she will do to ensure victory for the NDC come the next elections, she said with good health, she will be in the trenches to canvass the needed votes for the party.
