President John Mahama

The Reformed Patriotic Democratic (RPD) has endorsed President John Dramani Mahama, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer for the 2012 elections.

At a press conference in Kumasi, the Founder and leader of the party, Mr Kwabena Adjei, popularly called Bambata, said the party took the decision after deliberations and concluded that they had to rally behind President Mahama to lead the country in 2013.

Mr Adjei stressed that it was critical for the country to elect President Mahama who he said had the requisite qualities.

He further said President Mahama could use his youthful exuberance to hold the nation together for development.

He recounted the recent vision of President Mahama when he presented his policy statement to the nation which among other things included job creation, accountability, good governance, health, agriculture, education and infrastructure development, which he said presented the most realistic,pragmatic and progressive path for the nation.

He reiterated that as his party was endorsing President Mahama, he also called on well-meaning Ghanaians to vote massively for him during the December polls to ensure total victory and to grant him his first four year mandate to execute the job of leading the country to the next  level of a better and greater Ghana.

In an answer to a question, Mr Adjei noted that the party would not go into a in merger with the NDC but rather an alliance.

He, however, indicated that his party would compete for parliamentary seats in some constituencies yet to be announced.

Mr Adjei also said the party would be very pleased if the NDC could cede some of its constituency strong holds to the RPD so as to enable it win some seats in Parliament.
