“We are here to see our president. We want to hear [something great] from him,” she said.
She had been at the airport since Sunday, anxiously waiting for the president.
According to Boateng, the Tamale airport was crammed by supporters of the NDC with school children waving miniature Ghana flags.
Another NDC supporter from Bole, the home town of the president, said he “has come to welcome the president and to wish him well in his bid to continue the better Ghana agenda started by the late president John Mills”.
The president is expected in Tamale later Monday.
He has already been to the Central, Western, Volta, Upper East and West, Eastern and Brong Ahafo regions to thank Ghanaians for their prayers and support during the funeral and burial of late President Mills.
