Massive youth peace rally for Mahama

Thousands of pro-Mahama groups descended on the Nima Kawukudi Park for one of the biggest youth rallies ever seen in the Ghanaian capital.

It was the first time all the key supporting groups with their own unique ways of campaigning have joined ranks to promote the Presidential candidate of the NDC.

The vociferous youth joined long standing party faithful, first time voters, independent student groups, floating voters, and admirers of John Mahama who thronged the rally.

The Movement for Mahama which came into being on the 25th of July 2012 ; a day after President Mahama was sworn into office, has been campaigning behind the scenes on the quiet.

It was officially launched on Tuesday 23rd October and is made up of professionals from different backgrounds and skills employing dynamic strategies to mobilize resources to campaign independently for President Mahama.

The pull and attraction of the Movement cannot be denied as household names like comedian Mr. Beautiful, actress Juliet Ibrahim, popular radio and tv personality Abeiku Santana and former VIP lead singer Friction, all mounted the podium to show their support for the NDC presidential candidate.

The atmosphere was akin to a carnival as political personalities took turns to move the crowd including the former Minister of Information Mrs. Zita Okaikoi, the NDC aspiring MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon Kwame Awuah Darko and Dr. Mustapha Ahmed – MP for Ablekuma East.

Delivering speeches on the track record of the President were Akyena Brentuo from the John Mahama Campaign Team, Nasir Mahama Toure NDC Ayawaso East Parliamentary Candidate and a host of others.
