PPP will make a difference - Brigitte Dzogbenuku

Running mate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) Flagbearer, Brigitte Dzogbenuku has explained that she chose the PPP because she believes the party will make the difference for Ghana.

“PPP will make the difference for me. There are several things with the PPP that appeal to me. One thing is the discipline and rule of law coming back into this system because we find that that is deeply lacking,” Brigitte said.

Speaking on the Citi Breakfast Show, Brigitte also asked electorates to consider the PPP as the best option in the 2016 general election.

According to her, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have failed to deliver on their mandate hence the need to give the PPP a chance to make a difference in addressing the needs of Ghanaians.

“We are pragmatic and we address the needs of the people. There are certain things that other parties do but I ask myself whether those things address the needs of Ghanaians.”

“If you listen to the other political parties, they are talking about jobs and we know that promises in our political sphere don’t always come to pass. The PPP however through Dr. Ndoum has established a company or business in every district so it is not a promise, it is something that exists. If things are run well, they grow. If they grow there is only a possibility of employing more,” she said.

Brigitte was named Flagbearer of the PPP on Thursday.
