Sympathizers of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who are domiciled in the US are rallying support for aspiring flagbearer of the party, Nana Akufo-Addo and his counterpart Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to lead the party in the 2016 general elections.
Akwasi Acheampong, Alexander Yaw Adusei, Agnes Adu, and Amponsah Stonash have formed the latest group known as Coalition to Elect Nana Addo and Bawumia (CENAB) to pursue that agenda.
The four, in a statement copied to DAILY GUIDE, stated that “Nana Addo and Dr. Bawumia have exhibited unquestionable brilliance in political leadership and economic management respectively and have the needed qualities to run a successful government.”
The group indicated that Nana and Bawumia could grow the country’s economy and lead the party to victory in 2016 elections.
“Considering the economic mismanagement, which has been caused by the inexperienced, incompetent and the corrupt NDC, the seasoned Nana-Bawumia ticket offers the best chance for restoring hope among Ghanaians and ending the untoward hardship in our nation,” it said.
CENEB said the experience the two in governance makes them the safest pair of hands to transform Ghana’s economy.
“With Nana and Bawumia managing the affairs of our nation, we will be able to go to sleep knowing very well that our nation’s kitty is well protected for its development.
“They are men of integrity with the vast experience and intellect to deliver Ghanaians from their economic woes. CENAB is poised for action. We want to see Ghana in the hands of mature, incorruptible and stable leadership and in Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia, we can undoubtedly see such qualities,” they added.
