The streets of Tamale are bursting at the steams! Over one hundred thousand people have been estimated to be participating in the opposition “NDC Unity Walk” which is currently ongoing in the Capital city of the Northern region- Tamale. The participants include former President John Dramani Mahama, NDC Members of Parliament and the party’s stalwarts.
Supporters and sympathizers of the NDC including party stalwarts, have flooded streets in Tamale for the walk. Residents gathered at social places, homes to follow the the event amidst singing and dancing. The walk is a show of strength in the face of few internal issues that characterised NDC’s internal politics after the 2016 election.
“We will join all the “Unity walks” to be organised across the region in solidarity with all those who genuinely call for unity, and praying for our return in 2020″ said Farouk Fatawu.
“We are delighted to see that national and regional executives and the former President are joining us at the walk, as unity walk is an issue that should always transcend personal ambitions and internal competition” said Samira
The arrival of the former President Mr John Mahama triggered a spike in people’s interest in the walk as thousands from different places in Tamale flocked in to follow the walk. Looking at the crowd, it is evident that the NDC is preparing to announce its comeback and poised to win power come 2020.
The NDC backs the march institutionally but members of other parties joined to attend. Abdul Aziz an ardent supporter of the NPP in Tamale said “it is time to make issues about Ghana’s development a priority for all. I am proud to be part of the day and seeing the former President join his party folks”
