Queen mothers in the Bono East Region have endorsed the National Democratic Congress's flagbearer, Mr John Mahama.
This was after the Bono East Regional Women's Organiser of the NDC, Esther Owusu Baffour, and her entourage met the former First Lady Lordina Mahama on her campaign tour of the region.
The queen mothers in the Bono East Region, led by Nana Serwaa Bonsu Ohemaa of the Amantin Traditional Area, revealed that the former first lady was dedicated to their region’s development and would often visit them to see about their progress.
However, Ohemaa Nana Serwaa Bonsu stressed that the current government had neglected the Bono East Region, hence their plea to Mrs Lordina Mahama to ensure the NDC works very hard to ensure a resounding victory in the 2024 polls.
"The Bono East region always had a special recognition under former First Lady Lordina Mahama. She always visited us and ensured we had developmental projects. Lordina Mahama took most of us on foreign trips which helped us a lot so we are throwing support behind Lordina and her husband to win power and bring back development to the Bono East Region," she said.
She went on to say that during the era of the erstwhile John Mahama administration, Lordina Mahama helped make sure that all the communities within the region benefited from massive development.
Bono East Regional Women Organiser of National Democratic Party (NDC) Esther Owusu Baffour thanked the queen mothers and assured them that her outfit was committed to working to ensure that the NDC won the 2024 general elections
