A new dawn beckons: Rot, hardship, insensitivity , corruption'll be no more -- Mahama

Former President John Mahama

The next administration of the National Democratic Congress will get rid of the rotten legacy of the Akufo-Addo government, former President John Mahama has promised.

At the 44th anniversary of the June 4 uprising in Hohoe, the 2024 flag bearer of the NDC said: "We are responsible for organising and letting our message of hope reach everyone across the length and breadth of our land", noting: "The dark days will last only for a moment more and a new dawn is lurking on the horizon".

Mr Mahama said "when that new dawn breaks, the governmental rot, the economic hardships and the insensitivity to the plight of the people and the offensive corruption and waste of the people’s resources will be a thing of the past".

He warned Ghanaians: "Do not allow people who have made lives difficult for you all these years to mislead you with hollow sloganeering, and shallow populism". 

"Do not allow them to confuse you that you must vote for them in 2024 because of your origin or family ties", he emphasised.

In government, Me Mahama said "we must be different from what the NPP has been, we must set a new standard in governance so that Ghanaians will appreciate that we are not condemned as a people to live with this level of greed and impunity.”
