Rousing welcome for Nana Akuffo Addo
The flag bearer of the New atriotic Party, (NPP), Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo, has stated that Ghana's democracy is gradually being consolidated as a result of good governance and the rule of law being practised by the government.
He has therefore urged Ghanaians to return the party to power during the December general elections to enable it to continue building a healthy and prosperous nation for the people.
Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo said this when he addressed members of the Tertiary Education Confederacy of the New Patriotic Party, TESCON, of the University of Education, Winneba on Sunday as part of his campaign tour of the Central Region.
Some senior members of the party and some members of his campaign team accompanied him.
He said the NPP government has laid the foundation to propel the nation into a middle-income status and hoped that members of the confederacy would continue working hard and support the government to retain power during the elections.
Nana Akuffo Addo said with the oil find in some parts of the country, the nation is on the verge of accelerated economic growth. He said education plays a key role in the development of a nation, hence the government policy to offer opportunity for all to attend school.
Papa Owusu Ankomah, Dr. Kofi Konadu Apraku, Mr. Yaw Osaafo Marfo, Dr. Frimpong Boateng, Mr. Owusu Agyapong and Mr Nkrabea Effah-Dartey, who were with the Presidential candidate, all appealed to Ghanaians to vote massively for the party in the December elections.
The President of TESCON, Mr David Nortey said TESCON had been contributing to the success of the party in the Central Region, but their activities have been constrained, due to inadequate support. He therefore appealed to the party hierarchy to support them with logistics to enable them to achieve their vision for the party.
Earlier, Nana Akuffo Addo and his entourage paid a courtesy call on the Omanhene of the Effutu traditional area, Neenyi Ghartey VII and the Zongo chief, Sulemani Saligah IV.
Neenyi Ghartey appealed to Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo to help reduce the number of chieftaincy disputes in the Central Region, if he becomes president.
A large crowd, made up of party supporters and sympathizers, amidst brass band music, followed the entourage as they paraded some principal streets of the town.
