KNUST NPP appeals to floating votersGive Nana, NPP landslide victory

By Sebastian R. Freiku, Kumasi - Ghanaian Chronicle

THE KWAME Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) community branch of the New Patriotic party (NPP) has appealed to all floating voters to vote massively for Nana Akufo -Addo to enable him win the December 7 elections by a landslide.

The branch would also want the floating voters to vote for the majority of NPP parliamentary aspirants to ensure a massive win for the NPP. The membership of the party at the local level said it is mindful of the flag bearer's track record of love for God and country which has guided him to defend the Danquah-Busia Tradition by fighting tooth and nail to end dictatorship and return Ghana to Democratic rule, hence their support for Nana's crusade to become the next President of Ghana.

Making the appeal during an interaction with a section of the media in Kumasi, Mr. Kofi Asante, the chairman, said the NPP flag bearer deserves the mandate which he seeks to enable him take full charge of the national affairs and together with his team of experts take Ghanaians to the Promised Land guided by his Believe in Ghana slogan.

His appeal follows the enormous support for the NPP from the conviction that the NPP can deliver on their promises and the need for floating voters to exercise their franchise decisively. Mr. Asante saw Nana Akufo-Addo the Presidential candidate who cannot be manipulated, remote controlled or stage managed in anyway.

He noted that Ghana is blessed to have Nana Akufo-Addo to lead the NPP, and described the NPP flagbearer as somebody who possesses distinguishing features that set him apart from other contenders.

Chairman Asante referred to Nana Akufo Addo's selfless sacrifices for Ghanaians, his total commitment to stamp out tyrannical tendencies, his belief and the preservation of the hard won democratic dispensation being enjoyed currently.

Meanwhile, the party chairman has cautioned radio stations and their presenters to be mindful of their presentations whenever they are on air to guarantee peaceful elections. He suggested that radio stations should put a hold on all political talk shows a week before the elections and cease further political discussions until after the elections.

Mr. Asante noted that peace was paramount and urged Ghanaians to disabuse their minds about violence.
