The National Democratic Congress (NDC) will transform Ghana into an advanced nation if given the nod in the 2020 general elections, flagbearer of the party, John Dramani Mahama has said.
“It is our sacred mission to turn Ghana into an advanced nation as soon as possible! It is our moral obligation to be bold and to aim for greatness!” the President said in a statement released ahead of the NDC’s 2020 manifesto launch, scheduled for September 7, 2020.
The former President said the current challenges in Ghana require the formulation of new policies and standards – a move the NDC intends undertaking if it comes to power.
“’Good enough’ is no longer good enough! To prosper and thrive, we need a fundamental change! We need to set our standards and expectations far higher than “good enough”! If we settle for “good enough”, we settle for a slow death of our very soul and of our pride.”
John Mahama further explained that he decided to run for a second term in order to fix these challenges.
“In all honesty, I didn’t take the decision to run for a second term as President neither easily, nor quickly. I didn’t jump into it. I did it out of a sense of urgency after I began to contemplate more and more thoroughly about our vulnerabilities as a nation.”
