Speaking on Peace FMs Morning show 'Kokrokoo' on Wednesday, 28th April, 2004, Dr. Mahama renewed his attack on the NPP government accusing hem of corruption and lack of effective governance.
The PNC leader therefore urged Ghanaians to vote massively for he and his party, which is a yet to go to congress, to elect a Flagbearer to contest the December elections. He repeated his promise to make education free for all from primary to senor secondary level as was done by the CPP government under the leadership of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah from 1957 to 1966.
The PNC leader stated that corruption has denied the people of the country the right to enjoy good living. Dr. Mahama is seeking re-election from his party delegates to lead the party for the third consecutive time, during the party's forthcoming congress scheduled to take place between May 28 and 29.
