GCPP aim for 2.5 million votes in Ashanti region

Leader and flagbearer of the Great Consolidate People's Party (GCPP) Dr. Henry Lartey has predicted a 2.5 million votes from the Ashanti Region which would pave way for him to win the 2016 general elections and be sworn in as President of the Republic of Ghana.

He posited that becoming the President of the Republic, will enable him create more jobs for the teaming unemployed youth in the country.

Dr. Henry Lartey who was speaking with students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) over the weekend said, the rate of youth unemployment is a time bomb for the country and until the situation is resolved, Ghana stands to suffer from the ripple effects.

According to him, the situation posses a lot of social and security threats hence the need to adopt measures to reverse the trend.

Dr. Henry Lartey noted, policies from successive governments has worsen the situation and led to the collapse of the local industry which could have served as tool for resolving the crisis facing the nation.

In his view, if the energies of the youth graduating from school are not put to good use, they will later turn on the society by attacking them as a means of surviving from the economic hardship facing the nation.

The 2016 presidential candidate for the GCPP, delivering his speech on his 'Richer Ghana Agenda' said, the party when voted into power will implement policies that will ensure that it creates the enabling environment for the local industry to thrive and also create opportunities for the youth in the area of job creation.

Dr. Henry Lartey was accompanied by his running mate, Mr. John Ameka and some supporters of the party.

The flagbearer interacted with members of the party in some selected constituencies and also visited party offices in the region.
