NPP supporters asked to avoid 'politics of insults'

Supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have been cautioned against 'politics of insults and defamation' during their campaign to ensure the success of Election 2008.

Mr. Amporfo-Twumasi, the Deputy Minister of Energy and Member of Parliament (MP) for Nkoranza South, made the call at a fund-raising rally, organised by zonal executives of the party to mobilise resources for campaign, at Akuma in the Brong Ahafo Region.

The MP, who is seeking re-election, said there was no doubt that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) would win Election 2008.

He said Ghanaians have witnessed remarkable changes in the country's development, under President John Agyekum Kufuor, and expressed the hope that the people would retain NPP in power.

Mr. Amporfo-Twumasi commended the Zonal Executives of the party for organising the event to solicit funds to ensure victory for the party.

He donated a motorbike to the executives to facilitate their activities.

Mr. Yaw Adjei-Duffour, Kintampo South District Chief Executive, called on the people to vote massively for NPP as a sign of appreciating President Kufour's efforts at developing the area.

Mr. Adjei-Duffour cited the tarring of Nkoranza Ejura highway, Nkoranza-Sekyedumase highway and the creation of Nkoranza North District and the Kintampo Municipality as some of the projects and said the Nkoranza Area was the only place with four districts.

The Zonal Chairman, Mr. Kofi Agyapong gave the assurance that the people of the area would never disappoint, Mr. Amporfo-Twumasi in his bid to retain the seat.

He said the electorate would vote massively for the NPP because of the introduction of good policies such as the Capitation Grant, School Feeding Programme, National Health Insurance Scheme and Free Medical Care for Pregnant Women by the government.

Mr. James Kwabena Appiah-Awuah, Nkoranza South District Chief Executive, advised the youth of the various political parties in the area to avoid any acts that could affect the success of the elections.
