Give PNC Chance — Mahama

The flag bearer of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Dr Edward Nasigre Mahama, is urging Ghanaians to give the party a chance to implement what it calls humane policies.

He said since both the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) had failed the nation, the PNC should be given the mandate during the December elections.

Dr Mahama said the rising unemployment problem, which both the NDC and the NPP could not solve, was an indication of the two parties’ lack of understanding of the dynamics of the situation.

Dr Mahama told the Daily Graphic that the PNC would focus on the provision of job opportunities for the youth to reduce unemployment if it was given the mandate during the December elections.

“Give the PNC your mandate and we will not fail you,” he said. He also called on the media to be fair to all political parties in their reportage of events leading to the December elections.

He noted that the actions or inaction of the media would go a long way to determine the outcome of the elections and, therefore, reminded them of their crucial role.

“It is incumbent on the media to pay attention to the visions and aspirations of all the political parties to help the citizens make good decisions about who to choose to govern the country,” he said.

Dr Mahama said the PNC had a lot to offer Ghanaians and appealed to the media to extensively cover the party’s activities to make it an obvious choice of the people during the forthcoming elections.

He stated that it would be sad if the media focused its attention on only the NPP and the NDC, which had failed to liberate the people from the problems confronting them.

“The PNC is the only alternative now and it is important for the media to give it the necessary attention,” he stated.
