Ex-President John Dramani Mahama believes that the problems of Ghana can be solved by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
On October 12, while speaking with some group of Ghanaians, Mahama said that the NDC manifesto has policies that could change the country’s state to a better one if implemented. He said the policies are based on infrastructure, economy, education, and other important ones.
He also said the NDC has a plan which will create one million jobs for all Ghanaians which could reduce the unemployment rate and boost the economic fortune of the country. He later said the NDC manifesto is better than that of the NPP and that it has the potential to change the country’s economy.
The former President said, “The high unemployment rate, businesses are suffering, the economy is collapsing. All the answers to what Ghana is going through today are in NDC’s 2020 manifesto.
“The big push for infrastructure, 10 billion dollars into infrastructure to construct our roads, our hospitals, our schools, they are all in our 2020 manifesto.
“After the launch of our manifesto no one discussed the NPP’s manifesto, they all focused their attention on ours, the plan to create one million jobs was also in there.”
Ex Ghanaian president and former presidential candidate of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama has stated that his party members will be very vigilant at the polling station during the 2024 elections.
He said this during interview in Techiman in the Bono East Region on Atina FM station on Tuesday 7th September 2020. Mr Mahama said the NDC government has learnt lessons from the past 2020 elections.
Mr Mahama stated that the elections which was held in 2020 taught them the NDC that elections can only be won at the polling stations so they will make sure their guards take care of that, and also he said the elections will be won or lost at the polling station.
He also mentioned that the polling station will be a ”do or die”. Clarifying that he was not referring to “All die be die”, and made it known that the right thing must be done.
He said the NDC will not want to cheat the NPP and will not equally allow the NDC to be cheated, rather they will want transparency so that the will of the people will be done.
The husband and baby father of former HIV/AIDS Ambassador Joyce Dzidzor Mensah has reportedly passed on.
According to a social media post by Joyce and others who seem to know the couple, the young man died after battling for his life in the hospital for sometime, until his unfortunate demise.
Joyce Dzidzor made headlines in 2014 when after parading herself as Ghana’s HIV/AIDS Ambassador and claiming in dozens of commercials as being HIV positive suddenly switched, claiming she was never HIV positive.
Last year, she wrote a letter to the then President of Ghana-John Dramani Mahama to recant her recantation of her status in 2014. She stated in her letter that the stigma attached to HIV/AIDS, which seriously affected her and her children, caused her to change her tune.
She asked for compensation for her work at the AIDS Commission as her contract was terminated unjustly. This was after it emerged that she had safely given birth.
Now, Joyce Dzidzor says her husband and father of the child she gave birth to in 2016 has died and the tribute she wrote on Facebook will make you wonder if all her wires are well placed in her head. When it comes to Joyce Dzidzor, you never know what to believe or expect!
Read Joyce Dzidzor Mensah’s touching story:
“My story. My story never ends. O yes it will not end until my last breath…. I met a man at age 19 and got pregnant for him. He allegedly died of AIDS in 2007. He died when I was still pregnant. After giving birth I was thrown out of the house by my neighbors because I was tagged with AIDS. I was on the street, no food, no money. I then started to talk about AIDS and premarital sex from the street to the churches until the Ghana AIDS commission officially made me an ambassador to educate people on AIDS. O.I.C.I also gave me enough training on public speaking and HIV education. The AIDS commission letter terminated my appointment after using me for videos advert and Billboard only because I sung during an interview on gtv. They left me without paying me for my work. My son started suffering of stigma due to my program with the AIDS commission and so I denied every story I ever shared just to protect my him. The man I got married to in 2010 only wanted an opportunity to travel outside Ghana and so when the opportunity came, he grabbed it through me , saying goodbye to Ghana and now he lives in London. Because of him, I’ve been banned from traveling to UK. Our marriage ended with a baby girl. I met Edmund Akaniru in 2015 when I was working on my series. He worked for me as a camera man and we started going out. I told him I had two kids and I was 27. He said he loves kids and he was also 27. I asked him if he wasn’t bothered about my HIV issues in the media and he replied “no I don’t care” he moved in with me and also shared his story with me. One day he came home with huge sums of money but went back with the money and returned empty handed. He never told me where he got that money from. Few months later he told me he was a fraud boy and he used to do hacking. He explained to me how he and he’s friends hacked into MTN mobile money account and made so much money he later said the police was then after him and that was why he moved in with me. One of his friends was arrested and his family paid fifty thousand cedis to MTN out of the money they spent on alcohol,Drugs and women. He said he had changed and was never going to do internet fraud anymore. He said his father was a Nigerian and mother was half Ghanaian half German. But I later found out it was not true, both parents were Nigerians. I had gotten pregnant for him and had a baby boy in 2016. After some time, truth about Eddie started to unvail. Eddie was 21 year as at the time I met him and not 27. I got angry with him and said to him I don’t want any small boy. He said age was just a number. Later in 2016 Edmund started keeping late and some times returned home following day, there was physical and emotional abuse because I couldn’t give him money when he asked. December 2016 he started falling sick and treatment at kaneshie polyclinic didn’t work so I took him to a different hospital. No doctor was able to diagnose him since all the tests conducted showed he was medically ok but no blood in his body. His family later took him to Nigeria and since his mother was a doctor I hoped it would be much better. But unfortunately nothing was diagnosed in Nigeria unless very low or no blood in his body. I kept checking on him and he was later taken to prayer camp where he told me his aunt was behind his strange sickness. Eddie also apologized to me for being the cause of all my downfall. But I forgave him. No matter what, I still loved him. But sadly, I received a call that Eddie had passed on on the 7th May 2017 and was burried on 8th may 2017. Yes. Once again Joyce Dzidzor has lost a man. Eddie died at 24 and I just turned 30. the story of the general public as usual, name calling and accusing fingers pointing at Joyce. But what can I say?? Sorrows last for the night but joy surely comes in the morning. My story continues….”

Actor John Dumelo has congratulated President elect Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
John who is a strong supporter of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and campaigned passionately for President John Dramani Mahama prior to the December 7, elections has accepted defeat after his candidate lost to Akufo-Addo.
Few minutes after Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was officially declared winner of the elections, John took to Facebook to congratulate his new President.
“We fought a good fight… but the people have spoken. Congrats to president elect Nana Akufo Addo “.
John was one of the several celebrities who endorsed President Mahama ahead o the elections.
Nana Addo was declared the winner of the 2016 elections after a keenly contested elections. He polled 5,716,026 to beat incumbent President John Mahama who had 4,713, 277.
According to Electoral Commission statistics, Nana Akufo-Addo recorded 53.85% of the total votes cast as against 44.40 by President Mahama.
The first gentleman of the republic of Ghana, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama on his Instagram page yesterday gave a shout-out to sultry singer Nana Akua known in showbiz as Mzbel.
The president posted a photo of the singer and captioned it ;“my crazy, controversial, troublesome,hardworking, fun but shy daughter @mzbelmusic thanks for your support”
Mzbel recently was bashed by some section of Ghanaians for publicly declaring her support for the ruling party and its flag bearer, John Mahama.
She went as far as doing a photo shot wearing the party colours and holding their green book which consists of all they have achieved since they took over. According to them, the book should form the basis on which the Ghanaian populace should give them another chance.
As if that was not enough, the Legelege singer went ahead to compose a song called JM Toaso, where she urged the people pf Ghana not to give up on Prez Mahama.
Actor John Dumelo has stated that he is not perturbed by criticisms and insults hurled at him over his open support for President John Dramani Mahama, and the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration.
The actor, who in ahead of the 2012 elections campaigned for John Dramani Mahama, is back on the campaign trail ahead of the polls this November.
Addressing students of the Akatsi College of Education during the inauguration of the party’s tertiary youth wing, TEIN, the actor said he is not perturbed by such condemnations, stating that his decision to support Mahama was one of his best decisions.
“Look, since I decided to say that I am for John Dramani Mahama and the NDC, I have been insulted, I have been bashed, I have been threatened and everything.
But you know what, I don’t care!! You know why because I know I am standing for a good thing in life” he said.
Actor John Dumelo spotted at NDC rally in Ho In November 19, 2015, award-winning Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo, was spotted at the Ho Jubilee Park in the Volta Region, where President John Dramani Mahama was addressing supporters of the incumbent National Democratic Congress to end his “Changing Lives, Transforming Ghana” tour.
The movie star, who has not hidden his soft spot for the NDC, was seen on national television seated alongside bigwigs of the party as President Mahama addressed the enthusiastic crowd ahead of the party’s parliamentary primaries scheduled for Saturday, November 21.
Mr. Dumelo, who like many others in the showbiz industry, has been criticized for actively getting involved in politics, became a subject of public discussion in May 2015, when he reportedly stated that Ghanaians were putting undue pressure on President Mahama to fix the country’s economic challenges.
Dumelo later explained that his sentiments expressed had been “totally misread and misconstrued.” Days after the backlash, John, who did a radio commercial for the NDC ahead of the 2012 elections, hinted that he was ready to join the campaign of any party that preaches a message he can associate with.
“Yes, I did a TV commercial for the NDC in 2012 because I loved the message they preached. I must state here that it was purely voluntary. I wasn’t paid for that and I wasn’t expected to be paid for that. I did it for the love of the country.
Any party that preaches what will benefit the country I won’t mind joining that bandwagon; be it NPP, CPP or PPP.” There are reports Dumelo may be nursing a political ambition specifically to get into Parliament in the near future and is seeking to build popularity and support base within the NDC.
