PRESIDENT JOHN Agyekum Kufuor has emphasized the need for the youth in the country to vote massively for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo in the December general elections.
He said this year's elections would surely determine the future of the youth in this country, hence the need for them to vote for Nana, who has the welfare of youth at heart.
“Your vote today will determine your future, and mind you, Nana is the only candidate for you.”
President Kufuor stated this at a mammoth rally organized by the NPP at the Cape Coast Jubilee Park on Wednesday.
The NPP government, he said, had done a lot in terms of development and God can even testify to that.
He debunked the assertion that the NPP was losing popularity in the Central and Greater Accra regions, saying the party would defeat the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
He remarked that Ghana would fly like a jet in the next three years and called on all the youth to vote for Nana Addo to accomplish that vision.
President Kufuor stressed the need for those planning to create confusion in the country to avoid such acts since the law would deal drastically with them when apprehended.
President Kufuor said Ghana has become the shining star of Africa and that people should look at the goodwill the country was currently enjoying the world over and retain the NPP in power.
Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama urged the people in the region to vote for Nana to move the country forward.
The NPP flagbearer, Nana Addo indicated that Ghanaians would never hand over the destiny of this country to the NDC which he said did not leave anything for the country.
He remarked that he entered into politics not to steal what he termed Ghanaians' money but to help build a better Ghana as well as improve on democracy and the rule of law.
“I'm a lawyer; I know where I can get my money from. If I want money, I will sit in my chamber and make money," he said.
Nana Addo advised Ghanaians not to engage in tribal politics but do politics of unity and solidarity which can move the country forward, adding that the NPP is the most performing party in government after Nkrumah's regime.
He commended the people of Cape Coast for giving the NPP 'sweet victory' all this while and urged them to do same this year.
Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, NPP MP for Assin North and Central Regional Campaign Manager, said the NPP was for peace and would not allow the NDC to destroy the peace of the country or intimidate the public.
Earlier, Nana Addo and his entourage donated a bus to the Central Regional House of Chiefs in fulfillment of a promise he made to them three months ago when the NPP trail stormed the house.
Thousands of NPP supporters, MPs, DCEs among other party gurus were at the mammoth rally which was climaxed with a “Believe in Ghana Campaign” music show.
Also in attendance were Yaw Osafo Maafo, former Finance Minister, Alan Kyerematen, former Trades Minister.
