Election 2106: Akufo-Addo's victory unstoppable - Minority Whip

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Sunyani East Hon. Ignatius Baffour Awuah has appealed to Ghanaians to give the presidential candidate of New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo another chance to restore the dignity of Ghana.

Comparing Kufour’s administration and Mahama-led administration, he said before the former left office, Ghana’s debt was GH?9.5 billion.

However, due to the reckless administration of President John Dramani Mahama, Ghana is now indebted to the tune of GH?150 billion, a situation he described as “worse governance since independent.”

Addressing thousands of New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters and sympathizers at a rally at Odumase in the Sunyani metropolis recently, the second deputy Minority Whip noted that “this year’s election is about improving the livelihood of Ghanaians. Your voting pattern must reflect on the quantity of money you have in your pocket,” he noted.

He therefore charged the kingmakers to vote massively for him as MP for Sunyani East and Nana Akufo-Addo as President of Ghana.

The MP for Assin North, Hon. Ken Adjapong speaking at the rally also explained why the youth should get involved in this year’s election.

According to him, the Ghanaian youth are the most vulnerable people in the whole world because of the non existence of job opportunities after completion of their education.

The situation, he added, “has become additional burden on parents”.

He alleged that sympathisers of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) who were victims of the KDM ponzi scheme have been fully paid while the rest were paid a paltry amount by the government.

“Is the NDC a party you should vote for?” he quizzed.
