Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has called on the foot soldiers of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), to intensify their door-to-door campaign to ensure resounding victory for the President in the December 7 elections.

He said because the NPP knows they have lost the elections they want to foment trouble, so the NDC members should be vigilant because they are peace loving people and should also close their ears to the NPP and concentrate on the victory campaign for President Mahama for a peaceful and better Ghana.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur was speaking at a rapturous welcome by NDC supporters at Seikwa in the Tain Constituency of the Brong Ahafo Region on his second day campaign tour to the region.

He urged the supporters to guard against complacency and work tirelessly until victory is achieved so that they propagate the achievements of the President.

Mr Amissah-Arthur said President John Mahama has achieved significant successes across various sectors of the economy and his supporters should be proud of these achievements.

"I will urge all members of the NDC to go from house to house, window to window and door to door to propagate the good works of President Mahama to enable him to win the December 7 general elections," he said.

He also urged all members to resist attempts of staying at home on electionday, adding that they should all go out in their numbers and vote massively for President Mahama and NDC parliamentary candidates.

"In the coming elections, if we don't go out to vote, then it is like voting for the NPP and we are not ready for them, so I will urge all to go out in their numbers and vote for President Mahama," he said.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur said NPP’s record in office in term of infrastructural development compared to that of the NDC is nothing to write home about.

He urged the NDC supporters to target the floating voters and explain to them the party’s developmental and transformational agenda.

He said the President Mahama led government has provided a lot infrastructural developments for the Region in terms of health facilities, roads, water and education especially the Day senior High Schools.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur stated that should President Mahama be given another four- year mandate by the people he would continue to do more.

He urged the electorate to vote for Hon Gyan Tutu to the MP for the area in order to complement the effort of President Mahama in Parliament to bring development to the community.

Mr Amissah Arthur said most of the promises made by the government to the people in the area in terms of infrastructural projects are being provided while others are ongoing.

He urged Ghanaians to conduct themselves in an atmosphere of peace and before and after the elections.
