NDC has rewarded 2012 voters with hardship – Nduom

The presidential nominee for the Progressive People’s Party in the upcoming general elections, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has chastised the John Mahama led NDC for rewarding Ghanaians who voted him into power in 2012 with untold economic hardship.

He said, Ghanaians voted the NDC with the hope of a life free of chronic diseases, erratic power supply, malaria and joblessness but the opposite is what the NDC has offered.

Speaking at the launch of the PPP’s parliamentary candidate for the Prestea Huni Valley Constituency in the western region, Dr. Nduom noted that “we voted for candidate Mahama in 2012 to bring good things to the people. But, what has been offered? Ghanaians have had to be slapped with unclean drinking water, chronic diseases like cholera and malaria, bad road networks in and around Prestea, four years of “dumsor”, unemployment and all kinds of things. That is what your vote for Mahama and his NDC brought.” “Today, your electricity bill is as much higher than your rent. It is the person you voted for in 2012 that has brought unemployment upon yourselves. It is what has denied you of decent jobs. If you vote them again, you are wasting your vote”.

Dr. Nduom urged the electorate to vote the Progressive People’s Party into office on December 7 to “provide jobs because we have our undisputed track record of job creation throughout the country”.

The PPP, he said will work at improving road network in resource producing communities such as Prestea, “because, Prestea still looks as old town as I have known it despite its gold production and contribution to the state. We will also work on your water issue to provide clean drinking water for you. Vote the PPP to transform this country.”

Dr. Nduom is headed to the Central region after touring the Tarkwa Nsuaem, Prestea Huni Valley and the Jomoro constituencies over the weekend in the Western region.
