Veep’s cousin declares support for Akufo-Addo

Patrick Mantey, first cousin of the Vice President, Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has openly declared his support for Nana Akufo-Addo.

Mr. Mantey made the declaration during a five-day tour of the Central region by the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Nana Akufo-Addo received a boisterous welcome by residents of Moree, located in the Abura/Asebu/Kwamankese constituency, during his tour of the Central region on Saturday.

The chiefs and people of Moree, who interacted with Nana Akufo-Addo, lamented about the neglect of the town by the Mahama government, the result of which has been a near collapse of the fishing industry, coupled with rising and unbearable costs of living.

The vice President’s cousin said he had joined the NPP due to the harsh economic situation in the country under the leadership of Mahama.

He stressed the need for the people of Moree not to vote for the NDC in the upcoming elections because nothing good has been done to improve the lives of the people of Moree, hence the need to vote for someone who can bring development into the area.

“I am dumping the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the NPP because they have nothing good to offer Ghanaians and I do not see any better future, should the NDC and Mahama retain power”, he stated.
