Nana Akufo-Addo also visited Agona Asafo, Duakwa, Nyaakrom, Nsabaa and- Agona Swedru where he also addressed a rally. On the party's vision for the country, Mr Kyeremanten said when Nana Akufo- Addo is given the mandate, his administration would use proceeds from oil to develop the country to the satisfaction of all Ghanaians.
He said the Kufuor government had fulfilled all its campaign promises and these include the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), the free primary education, job creation for the youth and the free maternal care.
