Ghana: Governing party officially launches 2016 campaign

President John Dramani Mahama has officially launched the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) campaign for the 2016 election.

President Mahama declared the campaign duly launched at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Sunday, where thousands of party members including the party Founder, Jerry John Rawlings gathered.

The NDC said the campaign will reflect its achievements and what it intends to do given another term in office. President Mahama’s running mate, Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, as well as the party’s national campaign team and parliamentary candidates, were also outdoored.

The party said the choice of the Central Region for the campaign launch, was a tribute to the late former President, John Evans Atta Mills, who hails from the region, four years after his passing.

The campaign launch, themed “Changing Lives, Transforming Ghana”, will be followed by the party’s manifesto launch which the General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia said may happen in Sunyani, the Brong Ahafo Regional capital.

Launching the campaign, President Mahama urged all party members to work to retain the party in office. He noted that the NPP is disunited and cannot govern the country should they be voted for.
