0

Former President, John Dramani Mahama is cautioning electorates against lofty promises from politicians ahead of the 2024 general elections.

According to him, such promises are only to influence votes and deceive Ghanaians.

“We all remember that some time back, some people came to us with lofty promises. Mostly, all these promises are for the votes of electorates. Not all that glitters is gold,” he said.

The former President made the statement when he visited the Apostolic Continuation Church in Techiman.

It was the first of many churches the “Building Ghana Tour” campaign team worshipped with in Techiman.

The flagbearer proceeded to the Assemblies of God Church where he acknowledged the economic challenges in the country.

Mr. Mahama made a call to the Christian community to pray to God for a leader who will deliver the country from the current economic crises.

“God will choose for us a leader who will deliver the country and set us on a path of prosperity,” he added.

He further advised the Christian community to hold on to their faith and take solace in the Bible and its message of hope.

The Builders Christian Church International was among the churches visited by the former President.

The message of the leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) was well received by the Christian community in the area.

Today’s tour is expected to continue with a visit to the Krobi Nursing Training College and a town hall meeting at Tuobodum. It will be wrapped up with another visit to the Techiman Central Mosque.

 Earlier this week, John Dramani Mahama, revealed plans to implement a groundbreaking system aimed at growing the local cashew processing industry if he wins the 2024 elections.

Mr. Mahama stressed the importance of agricultural development and suggested changing the current approach of sending raw cashew nuts to India for processing.

He proposed a new system where Ghanaian factories would process and package the cashew nuts bought from Wenchi before exporting them for foreign exchange.

Addressing a gathering in Wenchi on Friday, he noted, “Currently, cashews are harvested and exported to India for processing before distribution to other countries. The Indians profit more from cashews that we have struggled to plant and harvest.”

The NDC flagbearer promised to include the promise in his 2024 manifesto.
