The Flagberer and Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, says the next NDC government will build public universities in each of the newly-created regions.

The former President of the country said this while interacting with party supporters at Somanya on Friday, November 6 as part of his four-day campaign tour of the Eastern Region.

According to Mahama, the NDC has a proven track record of establishing universities in Ghana and that the next NDC government will not be an exception.

He said his government will build universities in the new regions to develop the human resource and create opportunities for all.

According to John Mahama, the University of Energy and Natural Resources was established in the Brong Ahafo Region and the University of Health and Allied Sciences was established in the Volta Region through the instrumentality and the vision of the late President, John Evans Atta Mills and that if given the nod come December 7, the NDC will do more.

“Through the instrumentality and the vision of the late President, John Evans Atta Mills, the University of Energy and Natural Resources was established in the Brong Ahafo Region and the University of Health and Allied Sciences was established in the Volta Region. In the Eastern Region, there was no public university too. So as President, I cut the sod at Somanya for the construction of the University of Environment and Sustainable Development with a satellite campus at Afram Plains,” he added.
