Opposition National Democratic Congress presidential candidate hopeful, Stephen Atugiba who just announced his decision to step down from the race and throw his weight behind former president John Dramani Mahama says he took the decision based on the fact that Mr. Mahama’s vision matches his.
According to him, he has had a lengthy discussion with the former president he has come to the realization that the two of them share the same vision for the country, hence his decision.
In a statement he authored a while ago, Mr. Atugiba said ‘’He gave me an assurance of pulling the party along, building party offices throughout the constituencies, creating jobs, empowering the youth and ensuring capacity building for the youth. Upon further deliberation, he also stated unequivocally, his desire to restructure the SHS system so as to make it better. Our whole discussion surrounded developmental plans to push this country forward’’ he said.
Mr. Atugiba continued ‘’JDM stands tall on the ground as far as the people’s choice is concerned. When it comes to logistics mobilization for our party, JDM stands tall. Bad governance of the NPP has made John Mahama a god every Ghanaian is worshiping today’’.
