Former President John Dramani Mahama has expressed his appreciation to supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress for supporting his candidature to lead the party going into the 2020 elections.
According to Mr Mahama, he is overwhelmed by the generosity of party members to fund his re-election bid.
MPs, constituencies and private individuals have given various amounts to support his campaign.
On Monday, some sympathizers of President Mahama gathered at his office to donate some amounts of money towards his campaign.
Mr. Mahama in a post on social media, said the act of generosity on the part of the party faithful is proof that ‘unity, solidarity, dedication and hard work’ is enough to get the NDC back in Government and alleviate Ghanaians from what he describes as “hardships of the suffering masses” under the NPP Government.
“Through your generosity, you have once again proven that with unity, solidarity, dedication and hard work, we shall win election 2020 to alleviate the hardships of the suffering masses”
Former President John Mahama also revealed that his supporters raised “more than enough” funds to support his campaign within 24 hours, a feat he describes as ‘humbling’.
He also added the many of the support he received was from Ghanaians who are not known supporters of the NDC.
“I am overwhelmed by your generosity- that within 24 hours many of you, not only known supporters of the NDC, have come together and raised more than enough to support the cost of picking my forms and filing the nomination to lead our great party to #Victory2020”
“I am further humbled by the teeming number of you, who gathered in my office to contribute your widow’s mite to my campaign. Thank you.”
