Politics of Monday, 26 November 2012
Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, Presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has called on the youth to vote massively for the party in the December 7 polls for a real change and for the development of the country.
He, however, expressed concern about the way some politicians were allegedly using gifts and other incentives to buy votes, saying that it was even more worrying that some parties during the last voters registration exercise managed to register under-age children to vote for them, and urged the Electoral Commission and polling agents to be vigilant on the voting day.
Dr. Nduom made the call when he addressed members of the University of Cape Coast branch of the Progressive Youth Movement (MYP) of the PPP in Cape Coast at the weekend.
He urged them to vote for the Parliamentary candidates contesting in Cape Coast North, South and Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abirem constituencies so that the party would have a larger representation in parliament.
Dr Nduom said he had over the years created many jobs across the country because he knows the needs of the people, and pledged that when given the mandate he would reduce the incidence of unemployment among graduates.
He called for unity in the coming polls and said when given the nod he would be a leader for all, no matter their political affiliations.
Mrs. Sarah Bucknor, Parliamentary candidate for Cape Coast South described Dr. Nduom as a practical man who paid over 20,000 people every month through the jobs he had created nationwide and urged the students to vote massively for him to become President in the December election because he had the potential and capabilities to bring employment and development to the nation.
She also pleaded to the students to vote for her and pledged to provide them security as well as their basic needs when given the nod.
Mr. Bright Droefenu, Parliamentary candidate for Cape Coast North told the students to see the PPP as a force to reckon with and that they should vote for the party for real change and development since it was the only party that had the youth at heart.
