Let’s unite for victory - Akufo-Addo urges supporters

The Flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has asked party leaders in the Ashanti region to unite in their effort to ensure a massive win for the NPP in the December polls.

He therefore tasked the leaders to endeavour to unify all fronts of the party particularly in the Ashanti region, which is the stronghold of the party.

Speaking at a meeting with party executives and parliamentary candidates in the Ashanti Region on Monday, Nana Addo expressed optimism about the chances of the NPP in the upcoming elections but called for unity across-board to ensure resounding victory.

“There should be the need for cooperation within the party. Choosing whom to cooperate with won’t help us win the December elections; whether any executive supported you or not, you are expected to cooperate with them.Whatever issue you have, drop it and help us to win power. There is no programme that is being unveiled by Mahama for the future of our country. This man [President Mahama] has been a disaster for this country and we hope to get the mandate on December 7.”

He said the party can win power in the December 7 general election, if it secures 80 percent of the total votes in the Ashanti Region through earnest effort and cooperation among them.

“The polls going on in Ashanti Region are encouraging; but we all know that if we hit 80% of the popular votes in Ashanti, we have one and a half feet in the door of Jubilee House. So I’m begging you, let us make this year 2016 the year of the elephant,”
