An event dubbed “John Mahama for the Youth Street Carnival” took place at the Osu Oxford Street in Accra to say thank you to Ghanaians for supporting President John Mahama, as President elect.
It was organised by pro-Mahama groups including “Movement for Mahama”, “Youth for Mahama”, “Ladies for Mahama”, “Zongo for Mahama”, “Vision for Mahama” and “GH for Mahama.”
The event was also to congratulate President John Dramani Mahama for winning the just ended December 7 elections.
A sea of supporters of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) thronged the Osu Oxford Street to participate in the event.
The enthusiastic supporters clad in T-shirts of NDC party colours – red, green and white with President Mahama’s portrait, lined up from the standard Chartered Bank, Osu Branch through Frankies to the Papaye Junction creating huge vehicular traffic.
The supporters holding party paraphernalia chanted “Mahama Ede be keke” in excitement and danced to popular NDC campaign songs.
It was the first time all the key supporting groups with their own unique ways of campaigning, came together to organise an event in appreciation of the trust and confidence Ghanaians had reposed in JM.
Performing music artistes at the event included Sarkodie, D-Black, EL, Becca, R2Bees, Ezzy, Kwaw Kese, Samini, D crym, Dr. Slim, Double, Guru, Michael Adangba and many more.
The slogan for the carnival is “Ego bee k3k3.”
