Flagstaff House Not Meant for Pensioners -states Dr Nduom as he descends on 'Weak' Presidential Candidates

By The Statesman

Papa Kwesi Nduom, the 2008 Presidential Candidate for the CPP for the December 7 elections, has observed that Ghana needs a very strong President who can move to every nook and cranny of this country to ensure an equitable development of the country and also criss-cross the globe to attract foreign direct investment.

According to him, he is the strongest among his colleague presidential candidates and will therefore be in the best position to serve the people of Ghana if given the mandate.

At a rally at Kwame Danso in the Sene Constituency as part of his campaign tour of the Brong Ahafo Region, Dr. Nduom called on the electorate to reject any "weak' presidential candidate who, he said, can not work to realise the aspirations of Ghanaians due to ill-health.

The CPP flagbearer urged the people in the constituency to change their voting pattern and vote this time for the party's parliamentary candidate for the area, since they have been failed by the people they have been voting for in the last four elections.

He stated the CPP"s commitment to wage a violence-free campaign and charged all political parties to do same to ensure a peaceful election, come December 7.

He called on the electorate to reject political parties perceived to be violent in the quest to come back to power.

According to Dr Nduom, 'a vote for the CPP is a vote for peace.' He therefore appealed to the public to help maintain the existing peace in the country by ensuring a campaign devoid of insults and violence.

He promised to revamp all the collapsed state companies established by Dr Nkrumah to create more jobs for the people and to ensure confidence in the Ghanaian economy.

Dr Nduom formally introduced the CPP parliamentary candidate of the Sene Constituency, Ramson Emmanuel Osei, a 51-year old educationist, and asked the people to vote for him in order to champion their developmental concerns to government help accelerate the development of the area.

The constituency women's organiser, Ubaida Yussif Saani, said the CPP is a great party which has come to stay and accepted by Ghanaians.

She entreated party supporters to debunk the notion that the CPP can not win the impending elections and that a vote for the CPP is a wasted vote.

Dr Nduom had earlier paid a courtesy call on the Zongo Chiefs at Atebubu.
