John Mahama Suspends Campaign in honour of Rawlings’ death – NDC flagbearer John Mahama has suspended his campaign towards the December polls following the demise of former President Jerry John Rawlings.
Mr Mahama announced the suspension of his campaign at Obuasi on Thursday afternoon, moments after news of the death of former President Rawlings was made public.
“I Just spoke with the campaign committee and we have decided to suspend the campaign for a little while,” he said. “We will be returning to Accra,” Mahama said at Obuasi in the Ashanti region where he has been campaigning.
“What has happened makes it impossible for us to continue with the campaign so we will return to Accra immediately and return at a later date,” he told the enthusiastic gathering of party faithfuls at Obuasi.
“What we are hearing is indeed sad but we must remain strong,” he added.
