Election 2016: Ghana at crossroad – Kufuor

Ghana has come to a crossroad and the best way to decide the future of the nation is for the electorate to vote out the National Democratic Congress (NDC), former President John Kufuor has said.

He has therefore admonished Ghanaians to vote wisely on December 7 as Ghana goes to the polls for the seventh time under the Fourth Republic.

“On Wednesday, we will not be joking, we are voting for the future, Ghana has come to a crossroad and we will do the right thing with the right leadership,” the former president told a teeming crowd of NPP supporters in Accra to round off their campaign for 2016.

“The right leadership is in NPP led by Akufo-Addo and supported by Mahamudu Bawumia and all others who were there when NPP pulled Ghana from HIPC into middle income status,” he added.

“Ghana would have been the mainstream of developed nations by now but we missed the way” due to mismanagement of the economy by the governing NDC.

“Ghana had everything initially but eventually lost focus following a number of coup d’états until the NPP came into power.”

According to him, “On Wednesday I believe the people of Ghana are going to troop the polling stations to change the government and they are going to bring the NPP, led by Akufo-Addo as the new government.”

“Vote wisely with the love of the country at heart,” ex-President Kufuor noted.

“The victory will start from Accra, through Eastern to Ashanti Region. We will also win in Brong Ahafo region. We will share the victory in the other regions.”
