He should let the person prevail in the election.”

Mr. Mahama, accompanied by his wife Lordina Mahama made a visit to the Temale Teaching Hospital to cut a birthday cake and interacted with patients and staff at the the hospital afterwards as part of activities to mark the occasion.
Mrs Lordina Mahama, accompanied by his husband Mr John Dramani Mahama, also visited the Nyohini Children’s Home in the Tamale metropolis, where they donated foodstuffs and other groceries to support the upkeep of the children.
He explained that the rationale behind his decision to donate to the home was to share the joy of his birthday with the beneficiaries which he chose the Temale Teaching Hospital (TTH).

Nonetheless, Mr Mahama also urged polling station officials of the NDC to be vigilant on election day to ensure transparency at the polling stations.
He further claimed that the four years of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s government had been characterised by hardships, lack of development projects and high unemployment rates.
He therefore, appealed to voters to bring the NDC back to power by voting the NDC in the up coming at the December 7 polls to continue with its people-centred projects to improve their lives.
