John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has expressed the party’s strong determination to win the upcoming December 7 elections.

Speaking at the funeral of the late John Tia Akologo, a former Minister of Information, in Duusi, Talensi District of the Upper East Region, Mahama emphasized that an NDC victory would be a win for Ghana as a whole.

Mahama criticized the current administration of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), accusing it of plunging the country into a crisis. He assured the mourners that the NDC’s goal is to “reset our nation” and rescue it from the difficulties imposed by the NPP’s governance.

“We are determined to win this election, not for ourselves and not for NDC, but we’re winning this election for Ghana. This election is between Ghana and the NPP, not NDC and NPP because we need to reset our nation. We need to rescue our nation from the crisis in which it has been plunged by the NPP administration,” Mahama stated.
