Presidential candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, has charged sympathizers of the party in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency to be vigilant during the December polls.
He has also asked them to commit to peace during the election to avoid clashes with opposition candidates.
Speaking at a mini-rally on the campus of the University of Ghana, he was optimistic that violent clashes that marred the January 2019 by-election would not reoccur on December 7.
“Remember the very bad memories of what took place during the by-elections and we don’t want that to happen again. I want to make a commitment that we are going to be peaceful, but we are going to own up our polling station and protect our ballots and I hope that no vigilantes and army people will come to this constituency and attempt to shoot people,” he said
John Mahama also reiterated his position on the controversial public universities bill.
He said that the Bill will be withdrawn from Parliament if he is elected in the December election.
“As long as I live, as long as I become president of this country, the public university bill will never see the light of day,” he declared.
