Mahama travels the Northern Region.

John Mahama has recently praised the overlord for his outstanding leadership in reuniting Dagbon after a protracted struggle.

The NDC flagbearer will also visit two additional paramountcy, Mion and Gushegu, to gather feedback on how well the people want to be serviced.

He will host town hall meetings and engage with craftsmen and other interest groups.

While at Zuarungu earlier, the former President issued a notice to restore the original names of public universities renamed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

He added that the present titles will be used to key infrastructure in colleges.

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) stated that the NDC founded and developed every public university.

He claims the New Patriotic Party (NPP) simply comes in to rename certain colleges.

“We are known as nation builders because of the number of schools we have built. Every public university was initiated and built by us. All the NPP knows how to do is name universities that people have built.

“After NDC builds a university, then they will give it the name of one of their heroes or people. We are going to rename the universities. Ghana has many heroes, and not only the heroes of the NPP tradition.

“We can name an administration block, hostel, and library after somebody. But the university must reflect its core mandate. And so we will restore the original names, and the names that they have given them will be given to significant infrastructure in the universities.

“And we will add other people and name the infrastructure in the universities after them. But if the university is the University for Development Studies, that is its core mandate. It will be called the University for Development Studies,” he said while addressing party supporters, chiefs, and students at Zuarungu in the Upper East Region.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo renamed the University for Development Studies (UDS) campus in Wa after Simon Diedong (SD) Dombo, a United Party figure.
