NPP is Ghana’s best bet for development – Akufo-Addo

The Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo Addo has asked the people of the Volta Region to consider voting for the NPP in this year’s general elections rather than the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC).

According to him, the NPP remains the country’s best bet in terms of a government that will ensure development.

Speaking to residents at Asikuma in the Volta Region earlier today, he said the Mahama-led administration has been a disappointment at leading the country.

He said, although the NPP’s fortunes in the Volta Region is weak, Mahama’s poor leadership calls for a new government, the NPP administration to lead the country to a path of economic growth and prosperity.

“The fortunes of the New Patriotic Party has always been very weak but we are hoping that we are going to a significant change. All through Ghana there is a strong wind blowing for change in government this year because of the disappointment the Ghanaian people have had in the leadership of President John Dramani Mahama,” he said.

Our social security system, our health system, our education system are all in crisis under his [Mahama] leadership and we are trying to persuade the Ghanaian people that is possible to move away from these difficulties to a better era of prosperity and progress.

He said his party has the solution to all the problems being faced by Ghanaians to effectively manage the economy, create jobs in industry and agriculture and the development of the country’s social infrastructure.

Nana Addo is spending five days in the Region and is expected to visit a total of 15 constituencies including South Dayi, Kpando, Krachi East, Nkwanta North, Hohoe, Ho Central and North Tongu.

This is the second time the NPP flagbearer is touring the Region ahead of the December polls.

and hopes the party will at least win 3 seats in parliament and 30% of the popular vote.
