JM Door to Door Campaign: “Old Woman in Yendi Asks President Mahama to Go to Farm With Her If He Wants Her Vote”
An old woman, 64, in Yendi shocked Ghana’s President John Dramani Mahama and his entourage during their Door to Door Campaign today when she asked that the President to follow her alone to her farm to labour for the day if he wants her vote in the upcoming general elections.
According to the woman, everything the President and his folks told her they’ve done in their green book does not affect her life in anyway—she goes to her farm each day around 9am and return at 6pm to her mud house which has no electricity or pipe, except a well her late husband got made when he was alive.
Therefore, there’s no reason why she should not go to farm on the day of the election and spend her precious time to queue up just to vote for a man who she has never seen, a man who doesn’t care about her and whose decisions and so called projects do not in anyway enhance her life.
Ghana News Agency reports that, “the woman was persuasive in her request and when the President humbly declined promising to get her some bags of fertilizer and an extra cutlass for her farm, she also humbly declined—saying, she uses free manure and she has only two hands so wouldn’t have a need for another cutlass.”
Currently, President Mahama is on a nationwide tour ahead of the Ghana’s November elections, moving from door to door to convince people they should give him another 4 years to free enjoy the uninterrupted power supply at the Flag Staff House.
