NPP Shakes Koforidua

Daily Guide

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP)-elect for New Juaben South, Beatrice Bernice Boateng and party executives in the constituency last Sunday led a large number of NPP supporters in a weekly keep-fit exercise in the Koforidua municipality to drum home the need to give Nana Akufo-Addo a resounding victory in the December 28 run-off.

The exercise was patronised mainly by the youth and accompanied with brass band music.

The supporters marched through the streets of Koforidua as they danced to 'jama' music and solicited support for their presidential candidate with a public address system.

Addressing the enthusiastic supporters at the Jackson Park after the procession, Madam Boateng, popularly known as B.B., appealed to supporters of the party to be very vigilant on December 28 since it has come out that some EC officials at certain polling stations allegedly connived with some NDC agents to rig the December 7 elections.

She told the supporters to make sure their ballot papers were validated and not thumb-printed before casting their votes.

She also advised supporters to educate the elderly on how to use the thumb to vote correctly and not use the finger dipped into the indelible ink to vote.

She as well advised the supporters to go to the polling stations early to cast their votes since information had it that NDC members rushed to the polling stations early enough to cast their votes and “did their own things”.

“We need to be at the polling stations early and monitor whatever is going on so that we don't give room to the NDC people to steal again,” she said. Madam B.B. told the party's supporters to seriously canvass for votes with some few days to go for the re-run so that the NPP can win the presidency to enable the NPP MPs put into action their development programmes for their respective constituencies.
