#2020GenElection: I’ll never engage in insult politics – Mahama

NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama

The Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has promised to engage in a clean campaign in the lead up to the 2020 General Election.

Pledging on his behalf and that of his running mate, John Dramani Mahama said: “We will never engage in insults and name calling.”

The ex-President gave the assurance at a brief ceremony held to introduce his running mate, Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, to the Christian community in Ghana.

The NDC Presidential Candidate said recent events in the country point to a tacit plan by the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to corrupt the morals of the youth.

“The future generation that we are teaching and preparing to take over have been deliberately perverted,” Mr Mahama said, adding “almost everything we have held dear have intentionally been corrupted.”

But the time is ripe for Ghanaians to rise up against the forces that want to divide the country, the ex-president told the clergy.

“No matter where we have belonged this is the time to unite…this [campaign] is not about me but Ghana,” he said.
