Information gathered by GhanaMps.gov.gh has it that most MPs and aspiring ones on the ticket of the NDC who have already printed their campaign materials prior to the general elections with images of themselves and the late Ex. President Mills may incur huge loss.

As a tradition for every campaign season, MPs print T-shirts, caps, and stickers with pictures of themselves and their presidential candidates and the NDC MPs are not exempted from this.

GhanaMps.gov.gh has it that a sizeable number of NDC MPs have already printed such materials with pictures of themselves as parliamentary candidates and that of former President Mills as the presidential candidate for the NDC in the upcoming general elections.

Others have also mounted huge bill boards which cost hundreds of Ghana cedis with their pictures and the late President.

But following the death of President Mills, which happened on July 24 2012, the MPs have no choice than to reprint new T-shirts and stickers and mount new billboards with pictures of themselves and possibly that of the new President John Mahama who is likely to be the Presidential Candidate for the NDC in the upcoming general elections which comes on barely 4 months from now.

This will undoubtedly be a great drain on the coffers of the MPs as it is common knowledge that they raised huge funds from well wishers, businessmen, and family members to run their electioneering campaigns.
