Mr. Mahama announced this at a mini-rally at Obuasi. The NDC leader in announcing the suspension said a date for resumption of the tour will be communicated later. “We didn’t hear good news today. We just received some very sad news that our founder, Jerry John Rawlings has passed on and it makes it impossible for us to continue this campaign tour of the Ashanti Region. So I have spoken to our chairman of our national campaign committee and the committee has agreed that we announce a brief suspension of this campaign,” he said.
