NPP refutes allegations

Asankragwa -- THE Western Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Peter Mac-Manu, has stressed that the strategy of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to resort to spreading unfounded accusations against the NPP in the Amenfi West by-election has exposed NDC?s desperation.
He said the NDC?s reliance on deceit and lies is a ploy to divert attention from the imminent defeat that is staring the party in the face.
Reacting to allegations levelled against the NPP at Asankragwa yesterday, Mr Mac-Manu said ?I look at the accusations of alleged inducements, rigging and vote buying as effusions of a dying horse?.
He said the NDC is dead at Amenfi West and cannot offer any stiff opposition at the election.
According to Mr Mac-Manu, the NPP is working hard and campaigning in the rural communities in the constituency while the NDC continues to concentrate on allegations. He said the voters in Amenfi West will surely reward the NPP for its hard work at the April 24 polls.
Mr Mac-Manu noted that the NDC has no tangible legacy to rely on to seek the votes of the people of Amenfi West. He pointed out that the NPP has started work on the Asankragwa-Bawdie road, provided furniture for schools in the area, built bungalows for teachers and extended electricity to the area within the two years of its rule.
