The Ashanti regional youth wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has re-emphasized their support of former President John Dramani Mahama.
A group calling herself NDC Ashanti Youth popped up and issued a statement opposing the candidature of John Dramani Mahama.
A statement signed by the NDC’s Ashanti regional Youth Organizer; Mr. Osman Nabali Abdullah called the statement childish and encouraged all party members to disregard the said statement. He stressed that the brand of John Mahama is too strong to be soiled by such a statement.
He revealed that the group is not known to the NDC nor her youth wing and hence could not possibly be representing the views of the party’s youth in the region.
“We want to restate that, as far as the Regional Youth Wing is concerned, it is either H.E. John Mahama or no one else – John Maham till we win” a portion of the statement read.
Meanwhile, John Dramani Mahama is in the Ashanti region today as part of his “Thank you” tour of the country.

NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS
YOUTH WING – ASHANTI
For Immediate Release
RE: WE NEED A LEADER NOT MAHAMA.
A faceless group calling itself NDC Ashanti Youth which is not known to the Regional Youth Wing has issued a useless statement with the sole aim to divert attention from the thank you tour by His Excellency John Dramani Mahama in Ashanti Region.
We will not dignify the content of their statement because, the region does not know the existence of any such group. For the avoidance of doubt, there is no Youth group in Ashanti that operates by that name. This is the first time of any public statement by the said faceless group, and we are not surprised that their name just popped up at the time that Former President Mahama is in town.
One thing that, we in the Ashanti Youth Wing want to be known to all and sundry is that, the brand of H.E John Dramani Mahama is too powerful to be soiled with such a childish release.
We want to restate that, as far as the Regional Youth Wing is concerned, it is either H.E. John Mahama or no one else – John Maham till we win.
Under this current economic hardships we are experiencing, Ghanaians will not forgive the NDC if we don’t win power come 2024 and the only person who can lead us to victory is H.E John Mahama.
To all well meaning comrades far and near, kindly disregard the content of such baseless statement.
Our leader’s track record in Ashanti is visible enough for all to see.
OSMAN NABALI ABDULLAH
[REGIONAL YOUTH ORGANIZER, ASHANTI]
