Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that the 2024 general elections would be a crucial one hence the party would need educated members as polling agents.
He has therefore pleaded with members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to release their educated children to be trained as polling agents for the party ahead of the 2024 general elections. In his view, it would be prudent for the agents to be trained sufficiently and also resourced enough to carry out the mandate effectively.
The former president noted that the agents are going to be trained five times before the elections.
The move he added is to make their agents well-equipped with the right knowledge and skills to carry out the exercise
“Open your eyes at the polling stations like eagle eyes,” he said while interacting with delegates of the NDC at Dormaa East on Monday, March 13
“We know that you all have children who have been educated, we want you to release them to us so that we train them five times before we vote. This 2024 election is not a joke, it is boot to boot, it is do-or-die.”
