Former First Lady Lordina Dramani Mahama has now joined the NDC campaign trail as she is seen campaigning in Kintampo and Nkoranza in the Bono East region, campaigning for her husband and the National Democratic Congress parliamentary candidates in these areas.
Mrs. Mahama invited the people to vote for the NDC and John Mahama because he is a President Ghanaians can trust, and he has a track record of development without discrimination.
Mr. Mahama, she noted, will also work to create a minimum of one million jobs, stabilize the economy to provide all Ghanaians with opportunities, and develop critical infrastructure under a $10bn Big Push.
Political communicators and pundits have been questioning the absence of the former first lady in the 2020 elections, as the Current First lady and Second lady are seen actively engaged in the campaign trail for their husbands.
Unlike 2016 where Mrs. Lordina was engaged in active politics, this year her presence was missing in the NDC’s campaign which got people talking as there have been several allegations and misinformation as to why the Former First lady has been missing in the 2020 elections.
In reaction to such allegations, Mr. John Mahama said his wife’s sudden silence in the political space is due to some lies told about her in 2016 that got her traumatized.
According to him, though he intends to return to the office, the former first lady’s decision is to focus on her foundation and will not be actively involved in politics.
In an interview with Accra-based Asempa FM, the Former President noted that in case the NDC is declared the winner of the 2020 election, his wife will still focus on her foundation while he also focuses on his politics.
However, with just 24 days to the 2020 general elections, Mrs. Lordina Mahama has returned to the game of politics to support her husband.
Among the places visited by the former First Lady was the palace of the Chief of Jema.
