The Majority Leader Alban Bagbin has held a mammoth rally in the Nadowli Kaleo Constituency with a call on northerners to support their own: president John Mahama.

Bagbin also touted the achievement of the president, urging voters to vote massively for him.

"The last time we had a northern president from the northern part of the country is 35 years ago," Bagbin said, making reference to the Limann government his party overthrew in 1988. "And so if we are not lucky and this opportunity goes by, are we going to wait for another 35 years? no way!"

He added that the achievement of the president is just the tip of the iceberg.

"Once again, you are going to renew our mandate for us to continue with the good works. His Excellency president Mahama's achievement is the tip of the iceberg," he said, adding that the president will bring more development to their community if they renew his mandate.

The rally was attended by the Chief of Staff in a bid to quell rumours that President John Mahama is sponsoring a candidate to unseat the MP for Nadowli Kaleo.

It will be recalled that Bagbin launched scathing attacks on president Mahama in the early days of his administration.

He accused Mahama of appointing his family and friends. Asked why he is criticising the president publicly, he claimed he does not have access to the president so he will advise him in public.

Their frosty relationship was resolved when he was appointed as the Majority Leader and also as member of the 'three wise men.'
