In the event that he wins the presidency in 2024, former president John Dramani Mahama has promised to revitalize the cotton sector in Northern Ghana in order to help generate more jobs for young people.

He said that the government, led by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), would invest in the industry to make cotton production more commercially viable, given its potential to transform the economy.

He added that the government would help farmers produce high-quality cotton.

“Cotton is the easiest cash crop to cultivate because it doesn’t like much rains and also doesn’t affect other crops cultivation. With a deliberate investment, the cotton industry which has now virtually collapsed will be revitalised to boost the economy,” he noted.

As part of his three-day “Building Ghana Tour” of the Northern Region, Mr. Mahama made this statement on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, at a town hall meeting in Tamale.

Professional associations including teachers, butchers, barbers, and dressmakers were among those present at the meeting. They took turns addressing the NDC flagbearer about issues they wanted addressed if he won the December election.

National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer John Mahama expressed confidence in the party’s ability to address the economic issues brought about by the “incompetent Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government.”

Mahama emphasized the need for a visionary leader with experience and a track record, stressing the NDC’s strong leadership and their ability to have a positive impact on the country’s course.

Mahama emphasized the importance of the forthcoming general elections in 2024 and the need for an honest government while on a courtesy visit to the Gbewaa Palace in Yendi.

He promoted openness and honesty in government, emphasizing the value of integrity in leadership.

Mahama also gave the Overlord of Dagbon, Yaa Naa Abubakari Mahama II, assurances that the NDC would prioritize resolving the Yendi water crisis in addition to other national issues if they were to win power.

“Today, our country Ghana is in crisis, we all know the hardships, pains, and sufferings our people are going through.

“So the elections of 2024, this year is one of the most crucial elections in the history of Ghana. We need a competent, selfless, honest, truthful government that will come and lead Ghana out of the mess into which it has been thrown by the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government.

“I’m confident that NDC has the men and women to turn our fortunes around and make Ghana stand back on its feet.”
