Nana Addo not lying – Rebecca Akufo-Addo

Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo, wife of the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo, has been telling electorate, her husband and the NPP can be relied upon to fulfill election promises

Speaking at the Mallam Presbyterian Church in the Weija-Gbawe constituency in Accra, Mrs. Akufo-Addo stressed that Nana Akufo-Addo has built his image on being a reliable man and that, he will deliver on whatever promises that he has made to the people of Ghana.

As part of her tour of the Weija-Gbawe constituency in Accra, Mrs. Akufo-Addo also spoke to the congregation at the Mount Olive Pentecost Church at Top Base in Gbawe. She reminded voters of the track record of the NPP government.

She told them that the NPP, which started the school-feeding programme, the Metro Mass Transit, the National Health Insurance Scheme among other social interventions, has promised to introduce even more social interventions in a Nana Addo-led administration.

“When in 2000, the NPP campaigned on introducing a National Health Insurance Scheme to replace the existing cash and carry system, we delivered on our promise. Whatever Akufo-Addo and the NPP have promised they will deliver if you give us the mandate,” Mrs. Akufo-Addo told the gathering.

“We need change. Change is inevitable. Help bring the NPP back to power to fix the economy. Ghana needs Akufo-Addo because we can no longer go through such difficulties,” she added.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo stressed the rising unemployment among the youth, the perennial energy crisis have crippled businesses in Ghana coupled with high cost of living in Ghana and the failing health insurance scheme.

“When you pray remember Nana Akufo-Addo for God to give him good health and make him the president,” she appealed to the crowd.

Mrs Akufo-Addo also visited Oblogo, where she joined in a health screening of the people of the area. She took the opportunity to thank the people of the Weija-Gbawe constituency for the warm and hospitable reception.

She later visited Tetegu, where she outdoored the campaign office of the Weija-Gbawe constituency. She was accompanied by regional executives, the parliamentary candidate for Weija-Gbawe, Tina Mensah and her constituency executives among others.
