Information gathered indicates that Former President Jerry John Rawlings and other NDC big wigs will be attending the event.
Mr Simon Amegashie-Viglo, Regional Secretary of the Party, made this known to journalists on Tuesday.

He said President Mahama would inaugurate Ghana Education Trust Fund projects at OLA Senior High School and inspect other such projects at the Ho Polytechnic.

Mr Amegashie-Viglo said the manifesto, which would centre on transparent and accountable governance, strong economy for real jobs creation, investing in people and expanding infrastructure would deepen the Party?s commitment ?to serve the people of Ghana?.

Mr Amegashie-Viglo said the manifesto would also outline the main targets of the NDC government for 2012-2016 and map out strategies for achieving those targets.

?Under the Better Ghana Agenda chapter two, the NDC Government under? John Mahama would deepen government?s commitment to improve the quality of life of Ghanaians in health, agriculture, education and the energy sectors,? Mr Amegashie-Viglo said.

President Mahama is billed to address rallies at Juapong, Asikuma, Peki, Kpeve, Dzolokpuita on Wednesday before the manifesto launch in Ho on Thursday.

After the campaign launch in Ho, President Mahama would address rallies at Kpetoe, Ave-Dakpa, Dzodze, Akatsi, Aflao, Keta, Dzelukorfe and Sogakofe.

Former President Rawlings’ attendance will dispel any?rumours?beign circulated about that he has rejected the party and hence is not ready to campaign for the NDC to win the elections. Reports came in to the public domain, few weeks after the party ?endorsed John Mahama as the flagbearer that the former President Rawlings has thrown his weight behind his wife in joining the NDP.
