National Democratic Congress (NDC) Presidential Candidate John Dramani Mahama on Friday joined the leadership and supporters of the party at the Madina Central Mosque in Accra for a Muslim thanksgiving service for a successful election last Saturday.
Mr. Mahama polled 95.23% of the total votes cast in the flag bearer election held across all the 275 constituencies. Speaking after the prayers, Mr. Mahama thanked the Muslim chiefs for their prayers and support. He also thanked the party’s supporters and well wishers for the hard work and commitment over the last two years, urging them to remain together and build a united front ahead of the 2020 electioneering campaign.
The former president also invited the party supporters and the general public to Saturday morning’s Thank You walk that will start from the Kawukudi Park through Pig Farm, Accra New Town, Nima, Maamobi to the Elwak Sports Stadium. On Sunday, the party will hold a Christian Thanksgiving Service at the Perez Chapel, Dzorwulu at 8am.
