My promises are not lies - Nana Addo

Flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP,) Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has assured Ghanaians he will never renege on the promises he has made to the electorate.

According to him, he has the ability to deliver and has been honest to make promises he will be able to fulfil.

“I am not going to tell the Ghanaian people that I am going to do something when I know I cannot do it. I will never, ever lie to the people of Ghana. I will never do that. I have too much respect and love for Ghanaians to do that to them,” he stated.

Akufo-Addo and his running mate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, were in the Tamale metropolis, as part of their Northern regional campaign tour.

Having announced the ‘1-District-1-Factory’ policy, ‘1-Village-1-Dam’ policy, the diversification of the country’s agriculture, the revival of the National Health Insurance Scheme, the effective implementation of the Free SHS policy, the setting up of an Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP), the restoration of teacher and nurse trainee allowances, amongst others, the NPP flag bearer assured residents of Tamale that he was committed to fulfilling each and every one of these promises when elected into office.

With the Northern Region being the ninth region the NPP flag bearer has visited since he began the first phase of his national tour, ahead of the December elections, the twice-failed presidential aspirant stated: “Everywhere I have gone, there is a strong chorus of change for Ghana. And that chorus of change is taking the NPP and its candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to victory in December.”

He continued: “I was coming to make an appeal to the people of Tamale to join this chorus, but I can see from this massive crowd that you have joined this chorus for change already.”

The change the NPP is assuring Ghanaians of, he indicated, would mean that “the years of stagnation and recession under John Dramani Mahama will be coming to an end, for the years of progress and prosperity under Nana Akufo-Addo to begin”.
