The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama has raised concerns about the independence of the Electoral Commission and called South Korea and the international community to swiftly advocate for free and fair elections in Ghana ahead of the general elections.

According to Mahama, peace and stability in Ghana is very important and needs to be protected.

“As we gear up for the upcoming elections, I raised concerns about the independence of the Electoral Commission. I urged South Korea and the international community to swiftly advocate for free and fair elections in Ghana, an issue of utmost importance.” Mahama made this when he met Ambassador Park Kyongsig of South Korea to discuss the invaluable support and investments South Korea has committed to Ghana.

“It was an honour to meet with Ambassador Park Kyongsig of South Korea to discuss the invaluable support and investments South Korea has committed to Ghana. I expressed my profound gratitude for restructuring Ghana’s debt, which will significantly bolster our debt restructuring efforts during these challenging economic times.” He said.

The former president also outlined plans by the next NDC government to establish rice mills and Farmer Service Centres to boost our agricultural sector.

“I also shared with Ambassador Park the National Democratic Congress’ plans to establish rice mills and Farmer Service Centres to boost our agricultural sector. I am grateful for the support and look forward to the continued partnership between Ghana and South Korea.”

“Our discussion also delved into the $2 billion framework arrangement, a substantial investment that will significantly impact crucial sectors such as healthcare, education, environment, and agriculture. This arrangement, coupled with the introduction of new rice varieties, holds immense potential for enhancing food sufficiency in Ghana. South Korea’s commitment to bolstering our agricultural sector is truly commendable and will undoubtedly make a substantial difference.”
