Ghana: John Dramani Mahama Ladies Formed in Kumasi

Kumasi — A NEW association christened 'John Dramani Mahama (JDM) Ladies' has been formed with headquarters at the Roman Hill in Kumasi.

The association, duly registered as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) about two months ago, has a total membership of over 2000 in Ashanti and Brong Ahafo regions.

The chairperson, Madame Yvonne Franklin Owusu, has said the association would basically campaign vigorously for President John Mahama's bid to enable him win the December 7 general elections.

She added that JDM Ladies, which would be inaugurated very soon, has come to stay and that the N.G.O. is going to do more than what the 31st December Women's Movement came to do.

Madam Owusu said the association members are suffering and has called on all those who want good governance to come and join them.

She said, since the NGO believes in social democracy and also believes President John Mahama is going to put things in order for Ghanaians in the educational sector, all should rush in for forms and become members.

The founder of the NGO, Madame Mary Armah indicated that the free SHS which is being touted to win the forth-coming election can never be feasible and that it is better to first think of quality education first.

Mr. Kingsford Baafour Atakora, who recently defected from the CPP to NDC and is the father of JDM Ladies Association, called on all those who share in the ideals of the association to join because it will be beneficial to women in particular.

He asked the women to educate their families about the voting process to eliminate spoilt ballots.
