Former President John Dramani Mahama has cut short his tour of the Bono Region.
The candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) who started his tour of the region on Monday was on a four-day tour.
Accompanied by the party’s General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, Campaign Manager Professor Joshua Alabi, former Chief of Staff Julius Debrah and Special Aide Joyce Bawah Mogtari, the former President made his first stop at Nchira in the Wenchi constituency, where he interacted with farmers and chiefs.
In his remarks, Mr Mahama explained his plans to modernize agriculture through improved services to be provided by mechanization centres in various districts. According to him, the centres will be established in all farming zones to help increase yield and income levels of farmers.
Mr Mahama also pledged to prioritise the completion of all abandoned projects, particularly in the road, education and health sectors.
He was expected to continue with the tour today but he has cut it short explaining that the challenges confronting the ongoing voter exhibition exercise have forced his team to cut t5he tour short.
He said he will soon address Ghanaians on the challenges saying: ”I am cutting short my tour of the Bono Region to return to Accra because of the increasing reports of challenges with the voter register and the exhibition process. We’ll address a major press conference on the issues in due course.”
