Nana Storms Eastern Region

By Daily Guide

The Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will storm the Eastern Region today to spread his message of peace and unity amongst Ghanaian people.

According to the regional secretary of the party, Mr Alecs Agobo, Nana Akufo-Addo will start his tour of the region from Nsawam where he would address party faithful at the Nsawam Lorry Park and then proceed to Suhum to address a similar rally before moving to Koforidua, the regional capital for a mammoth rally at the Jackson Park in the evening.

The Jackson Park rally will feature some artistes like Philippa Baafi, Christiana Love and others as well as comedians like Agyaa Koo and Bishop Bob Okalla.

People in the New Juaben Municipality have argued that Nana Akufo-Addo should exclude 'Maame Dokono' from his campaign team because her presence is hurting the entire campaign of the NPP presidential candidate.

There is another information from the campaign team that after Nsawam, Nana might go through Aburi before going to Suhum and Koforidua.

On Saturday, Nana will visit the recent landslide scene at Adukrom-Nyensi in the Akuapem North District of the region to sympathise with the victims of the accident.

He will later attend a funeral ceremony at Amanokrom before going to Asesewa and Somanya to address party supporters.

According to the regional secretary, Nana together with his campaign team will attend a church service at Anyinam Presbyterian Church and the African Faith Turbenacle Church before moving to Abomosu in the Atiwa District to address a rally there and then to Begoro and Kukurantumi for similar rallies.

On Monday, Nana will visit the Central Hospital at Koforidua and interact with some patients on admission and proceed to Adeiso, Asamankese and Coaltar to address party supporters.

The regional NPP secretary told DAILY GUIDE that the region wants to make Nana's visit a memorable one since he comes from that region.

He said the first phase of the tour will end on Monday and the second phase will begin on November 1, this year.

Alecs Agobo said the regional secretariat of the party is working very hard to ensure that the party wins in all the 28 constituencies in the region, adding that the NPP currently has 22 constituencies firmly under its 'armpit' in the region and the remaining six are up for grasp, judging from the good works of the NPP government.
