Becky makes inroads in BA

By The Statesman

Becky Akufo-Addo, wife of the NPP Presidential aspirant has taken her nationwide tour to the Brong Ahafo Region.

On the first day of the visit, she and her campaign team went to Goaso where a large number of NPP supporters gave a befitting welcome to the team amidst brass band music.

Addressing the gathering, Mrs Akufo-Addo stated of her husband, "Nana Akufo-Addo is credible and honest, a man who never fails when he promises.' 

The party which had implemented the most human development oriented programmes was the NPP and therefore should be voted back to continue educational development in Ghana she says, explaining, 'This is necessary since no nation has attained high rate of social, economic, cultural and political development without quality education.'

She observed that women, who constitute the largest block of the Ghanaian populace should embrace the NPP since it has women and children at the centre of its development agenda.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo assured the teeming NPP supporters of more innovative plans for the populace when her husband is given the mandate in the December polls.

Becky also met the queen mothers in the Brong Ahafo Region and implored them to be agents of peaceful co-existence.

At the Sunyani market, Mrs. Akufo-Addo urged the women to vote massively for Nana to consolidate Ghana's development.   

  The team later addressed a similar rally at the Sunyani Nursing Training College, TESCON branch.

The atmosphere was electrifying and hundreds of students patronized the intellectually illuminating and thought-provoking exercise.

They also addressed members of the Hair Dressers and Seamstresses Association in Sunyani. They made a whistle stop at Bechem and had a huge rally at Goaso.

Almost all the wives of the presidential aspirants and leading NPP women members were on the campaign trail.

Sophia Horner Sam, a party stalwart, tasked the people to retain the NPP in power to enable it continue its development projects. Other members of the team included Florence Frimpong, Julie Addo Yobo, Mrs Obetsebi-Lamptey and Mrs Frimpong Boateng.
