'Hurricane' Mills sweeps Central, heads West Friday
The Office of Professor J.E.A. Mills is predicting a resounding victory for the National Democratic Congress' presidential candidate in the December 28 runoff.
Professor Mills is in the Central Region where a revolt against the ruling government saw a massive swing in votes to his favour in the December 7 general elections.
Mills is consolidating his unprecedented support in his home region, and according to reports emanating from his office, the New Patriotic Party will be in for a bigger shock to deceive “themselves into thinking that their begging gimmick in the Central Region will hoodwink the people into moving away from the CHANGE & BETTER GHANA path, they are in for a more miserable outing in the second round.”
“Hitting his home region, on Tuesday, December 16, 2008, there is no gainsaying the fact that the Central Region is not falling one bit for the “hanya” tactics of desperate Akufo-Addo and his deflated New Patriotic Party.
“NDC Leader and Presidential Candidate, Professor Atta Mills, has been assured beyond all doubt by his people that come December 28th, their show of support will be more solid than what happened on December 7th.”
The reports said in carnival moods, the people have poured out in their numbers to welcome their “President” everywhere Professor Mills has visited.
“Be it, Winneba, Agona Swedru, Agona Nsaba, Bawjwiase, Kasoa, Dawurampong, Agona Duakwa, Mankesim, Yamoransa, Moree, the support has more than doubled from the last time Professor Mills visited.”
Professor Mills on his part has been thanking the people of his home region for believing in the NDC's Better Ghana agenda, and voting massively for CHANGE in the first round.
“I thank you the chiefs, opinion leaders, and the people of the Central Region for placing your hope in the Better Ghana agenda” Professor Mills has been saying.
“After all that you have done for the NDC, my solemn pledge to you is that, Atta Mills and the NDC will never let you regret for voting for CHANGE. The change that is coming, is not change for the sake of change; It is a change that will give us the opportunity to once again start making our nation Great and Strong” is one solid thread that has been running through the message of Professor Mills.
“There were some people who thought that your votes can be taken for granted but you have proven to them that you vote for a purpose and when your support is abused, you know when to take a decision that will inure to your benefit”
