The Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), President John Mahama, will on Monday October 17 hit the Volta Region to begin a five-day campaign.

The region is one of the strongholds of the ruling party, however, many residents, as well as chiefs, have expressed dissatisfaction at the lack of development under the watch of president Mahama.

Nonetheless, the party's branch in the region says residents are poised to welcome the president.

“We can confirm that the President’s campaign trail is in the Volta Region; and he is starting from Monday," NDC Volta Regional Youth Organizer, Egypt Kudoto told Citi FM.

“The Volta Region is having a smooth campaign in terms of our commitment to ensuring that we give the President the kind of numbers that he needs to secure the first round victory. I can say that in spite of all those other challenges; in terms of all other candidates who are going on the independent platform, we still have it going very well with us,” he added.

The president's travel to the region follows massive campaigning in certain constituencies in the Greater Accra.

President Mahama is currently in Togo to attend the African Union Extraordinary Summit on Maritime Security and Safety and Development in Africa.
