Collins Dauda is a coward – Akufo-Addo

The 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has condemned the Member of Parliament (MP) for Asutifi South over what he described as acts of intimidation that should have no place in Ghana’s burgeoning democracy.

“You (Collins Dauda) are contesting a woman, and you’re having to employ guns, dangerous weapons, and the use of macho men in order to win? It is a shame and a disgrace. What kind of man are you then? You are employing all of these shameful tactics, not against a fellow man, but, against a woman. This is a disgrace,” he said.

Addressing residents of Dadiesoaba in the Asutifi South constituency of the Brong Ahafo Region on Thursday, November 10, 2016, at the commencement of his four-day tour of the region, the NPP flag bearer was confident that regardless of these “shameful” tactics being employed by Mr Dauda, residents of Dadiesoaba and Asutifi South would vote out the National Democratic Congress (NDC), in both presidential and parliamentary elections.

“We won’t allow them any further stay in office. Everyone who, by law, is allowed to vote should cast his or her ballot without any fear. The voting will go on peacefully and the results, at the end of the day, the rightful winner will be determined. Macho men will not determine the outcome of results in Asutifi South,” he stressed.

Mr Akufo-Addo, thus, urged the electorate in Asutifi South to vote massively for the NPP’s parliamentary candidate for the constituency, Cecilia Amoah, and also for him in the presidential election.
