Forget About Central Region - Ken Tells NDC

By David Yarboi-Tetteh, Cape Coast -

THE member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyepong, has asked the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to forget about winning the Central Region in the December poll because the people have confidence in the ruling New Patriotic party (NPP) to take Ghana far.

He urged members of the NPP to work hard in widening the winning margin saying, “this region is now an NPP stronghold and we will never give it to the NDC.”

Mr Agyepong, who is also the chairman of the regional campaign team of the NPP, said this at a youth rally held here at the weekend.

Mr Agyepong accused the NDC of  carrying out an agenda to bring confusion during the election and urged members of the party to be vigilant.

The NPP, he stressed, would not rig the election as was being claimed by the NDC and added that it was a way of trying to throw dust into the eyes of the electorate.

He stated that the NPP had faith in God and knows without any doubt, that God would give victory to the ruling party come December.

A vote for the NPP, Mr Agyepong emphasised was a vote for development and transformation of the economy.

The wife of the Vice Presidential candidate of the NPP, Samira Bawumia, said this year's election is about the future of the youth and appealed to the youth to vote for the NPP because the party has comprehensive plans for them.

The current developmental programme under the Kufuor administration, she said, required a leader who can fast-track the development of the country and Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr Bawumia were ready to provide that kind of leadership.

A former headmistress of the Wesley Girls High School, Mrs Nancy Thompson, stated that the educational level in the country had improved as a result of the various programmes and policies under the current NPP government.

She further stated an Akufo-Addo led government would help to consolidate the gains made in the country's educational sector.

The NPP parliamentary candidate for Cape Coast, Ato Amponsah-Dadzie, for his part stated that he would help to create jobs and ensure  the transformation of  the Cape Coast constituency.
