Nduom deserves to be president – Kpassa Chief

Chief of Kpassa in the Nkwanta South district of the Volta region, Ubor Konja Tansan VI, has urged Ghanaians to vote massively for the flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP,) Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom in the December polls.

The chief, who together with his subjects met Dr. Nduom at his palace in Kpassa, expressed his excitement meeting the entrepreneur cum politician again.

He said that there were several candidates vying for the nation’s high office, but none of them qualifies for the office other than Dr. Nduom. The chief added that, all over the world, people vote for development and with what Dr. Nduom has done and he has seen; he would want all Ghanaians to vote for him. “Others will wait to be president to do what he [Dr. Nduom] has done.

I pray to the gods that he wins,” he said. The traditional leader told his people that there is no commercial bank in the area, but GN Bank has given them a saving haven.

…After the 2016 elections, I hope that he will be declared winner and president of the Ghana so we benefit from massive developmental agenda.” The Ubor said that, the Parliamentary Candidate for the area was one of their own and therefore urged him to visit the various leaders in the constituency for counsel and guidance.

Dr. Nduom in a brief remark noted that, this was the first time he was coming to the area. He explained that he made the stop on his way to the Northern, Upper East and Upper West regions, to confer with the chiefs and the people of Kpassa.

He said that on his way to the area, he saw lots of yam which if not used after some time will go bad, “yam chips can be made out of them. Systems ought to be put in place for surplus yam.” Earlier on Monday, Dr. Nduom interacted with residents of Tafi Mador in the Afadzato South constituency.

There, he met the chiefs of the area who pledged their unflinching support for him. They lamented over the lack of accommodation for teachers in the area; and urged Dr. Nduom to solve that problem when elected into office. Dr. Nduom told the people that he came to region to show that the PPP was ready for serve them.

He lamented the bad state of roads in the area coupled with poor educational infrastructure, but assured them of his commitment to helping them when he is president. “People of Volta region are hardworking people but unfortunately there are no jobs.

My company [Groupe Nduom], employs thousands of persons from the region some of who are key managers… therefore bringing jobs here is not a problem at all,” he said.

He introduced the parliamentary aspirant for the area, Hanson Kwesi Fia, to the people, and called for their vote to enable the PPP help them. The celebrated entrepreneur made a stop at Gbi Wegbe, where he donated some monies to the youth association in the area.
