Addressing a teeming crowd of party supporters at Adentan, where he introduced the Parliamentary Candidate for the area, Yaw Buabeng Asamoah, Nana Akufo-Addo appealed to Ghanaians to repose trust in him and elect him as President on his third consecutive attempt.

“I tried becoming the President first in 2008, I was unsuccessful, I tried again in 2012 and I failed again.

"This year is my third try at the Presidency, I plead that you help me achieve this feat in order to give Ghana the kind of quality and effective leadership that it deserves.

"God has blessed the NPP and it is endowed with men and women who when put in positions of authority will cause a positive turnaround of Ghana’s economic situation in no time, which will also give the masses the economic power and jobs that remains yearned for," he said.
