The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament (MPs) who are not contesting this year’s parliamentary elections have formed a group to ensure victory for President John Dramani Mahama and NDC parliamentary candidates at the December 7 elections.

Known as the 2016 NDC MPs Exit Group, the 47-member group said its priority was to ensure a one-touch victory for President Mahama.

It would also ensure the party maintains a majority in parliament after the  polls.

The groups, made a strong case for the re-election of President Mahama, based on the “impressive and unprecedented development of infrastructure across the country.”

Mr Alfred Kwame Agbesi, Deputy Majority Leader and MP for Ashaiman, addressing a press conference in Accra, urged Ghanaians to retain Mr Mahama for another four-year term.

“Ghana stands to gain a lot from Mr Mahama’s leadership in a second term, “Mr Agbesi said.

He said: “We have formed the group to add up in the campaign efforts of our and visionary President John Dramani Mahama as he seeks his constitutional second term mandate.

“As MPs, we have a vast experience in the campaign process, so we believe that when this is applied we would be able to help the NDC party secure the one touch victory needed to enable the president continue with his unprecedented infrastructural development drive in his second term, God, willing.”

The Group is of the firm belief that “whether in or out of parliament, the interest of the great NDC party remains supreme,” and reiterated the commitment and loyalty of the group to the NDC and the “abled and distinguished leadership” of the NDC Government.

Since its formation, the Group has been to and campaigned, with material support, in Volta, Central and Greater Accra regions and hopes to cover the entire country before the December 7 polls.

Mr Agbesi said the group would split into regional groups to visit the regions and constituencies to campaign for one touch victory.
