"We have earmarked what and how each regional capital should to be rejuvenated so as to raise the standard of living of people living in the rural areas," he added.
The PNC flag bearer said towns such as Nyinahin, Ejura-Attebubu corridor, Yeji and Buipe, Aflao, Bawku had various natural resources and these could be developed to attract and minimize the growing population in the cities.
Dr. Mahama said these selected towns would be provided with modern amenities such as schools, affordable housing, health facilities, electricity and potable water which would attract people of all walks of life to live there. With regard to urban renewal, he said an aspect of PNC manifesto would address the sanitation problems in Accra and Kumasi. He therefore called on all Ghanaians to vote massively for the PNC to enable it to transform rural areas. 10 June 08
