Former President of Ghana, John Dramanai Mahama has assured the Christian Community of committing an issues-based campaign devoid of name-calling and insults.
The former President made this known when he introduced his running mate to the Christian Council at a short event held in Accra Wednesday.
He noted that although the insults and attacks have started on his running mate, he said the NDC will not descend into the gutters like the othersare doing.
“My running mate, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, whom I am presenting to you today, has been encouraged by the Osu Mantse to be strong and courageous in the face of, what he feared would be, a barrage of insults and attacks on her person, just because she has decided to serve her country at the highest level, help shape its destiny and ensure shared prosperity for all. Indeed, these unprovoked attacks and insults have already started.
John Dramani Mahama, therefore, pledged regardless of the attacks on his running mate to stick to the issues throughout his campaign and that will also transcend to all other members of the NDC across the country.
“But I can assure you and all Ghanaians that Naana Jane and myself will never engage in insults and name-calling of opponents. Children are watching, listening and copying and it is important we serve as good role models. The book of Philippians assures me that the God who began this mission will bring it to a fruitful conclusion. Professor Opoku-Agyemang is God-fearing, a woman of unquestionable integrity, hardworking, and a results-oriented person. She has carved a niche for herself as a distinguished scholar in Ghana, on the African continent and across the world,” Mr said.
