Former President John Mahama is urging Ghanaians to go out in their numbers and vote in the district level elections.
The election is being held today all across the country to elect assembly members and unit committee members.
John Mahama who is leading the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) into the 2020 polls said the district level elections has enhanced grassroots participation in governance in the country and it empowers citizens to be directly involved in governance.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, he said;
District Level Elections has since its inception ensured grassroots participation in the governance of our country. Through the unit committees & representation in the Assemblies, our people have had the opportunity to be directly involved in governance at the local level.
As we go to the polls across the country to elect new members to the assemblies and unit committees, I wish all aspirants well and encourage all eligible Ghanaians to step out between now and 5.00pm to cast our votes.
