Mahama resumes Bono tour today

Former President John Mahama will, today, Monday, 28 September 2020, resume his campaign tour of the Bono Region.

Mr Mahama cut short that tour last week over concerns with the voter register exhibition exercise.

“I am cutting short my tour of the Bono Region to return to Accra because of the increasing reports of challenges with the voter register and the exhibition process”, Mr Mahama wrote on his Facebook timeline on Tuesday, 22 September 2020. 

Mr Mahama returned to Accra where he addressed the press and reiterated that neither he nor the National Democratic Congress (NDC), which he is leading into the 7 December 2020 polls, will accept the results of flawed elections.

He also said the Electoral Commission’s extension of the voter exhibition exercise by two days was inadequate to address the magnitude of challenges discovered vis-à-vis the provisional roll.

The former President, therefore, called on the election management body to extend the period beyond the two days.

The Electoral Commission has, however, said it has retrieved almost all the voter names that went missing on the newly-compiled voter roll.

Mr Mahama’s tour of the Bono region ends on 30 September 2020.
