Mr John Dramani Mahama, the Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has begun a six-day campaign tour of the Ashanti Region.

Mr Mahama, who arrived at the Kumasi Airport on Tuesday to a huge welcome by the Party leadership and supporters, started his campaign tour with a mini rally at Abesewa in the Ahafo Ano South East District.

Mr Mahama will, on Wednesday, pay a courtesy call on the Asantehene at the Manhyia Palace.

During the six-day tour he will also interact with zongo chiefs and imams, artisans, cocoa farmers and small scale miners.

Mr Mahama will highlight significant contributions of the NDC administration to the development of the Ashanti Region.

He will also focus on key areas in the ‘People’s Manifesto’ such as plans to create decent and sustainable jobs for the youth, implementation of universal access to healthcare, dubbed: Free Primary Healthcare, funding the largest skills empowerment programme under the NDC’s National Apprenticeship Programme, and Free Technical and Vocational Education and Training (Free T-VET).

Mr Mahama will end his tour on Sunday, November 15.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
