The Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, will on Monday, August 17 begin a four-day tour of the Volta Region.
He will subsequently proceed to the Oti Region for a three-day tour of that region.
While in both regions, former president Mahama will meet with traditional rulers, opinion leaders, organised labour, supporters, members and activists of the NDC.
In the Oti Region, John Mahama is expected to highlight the NDC’s record of infrastructure development across the country as well as re-state his commitment to develop the six new regions by providing, among others, regional hospitals and a public university in each new region.
The former president’s visit comes after the just-ended voter registration exercise which saw the government’s deployment of armed soldiers, immigration and other security personnel in both regions.
According to the NDC, the move was to harass and intimidate eligible voters from getting their names on the register.
Mr Mahama will return to Accra on Sunday.
