Listen to article

Cape Coast July 11 -The Volta regional secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Francis Anygblo on Sunday said the Volta Region was solid and unbeatable and would by all means capture all the 26 seats in the December elections.
Mr Anygblo who said this at Cape Coast when he joined members and supporters of the NDC in a Keep Fit exercise, which was later addressed by the party leadership, stressing that the Volta Region was still the World Bank of the Party.
He said just as the people of the Volta Region were still keeping the stone unturned, the people of the Central Region should also endeavour to do same to enable the party capture all the 17 seats in the upcoming elections.
Mr Alban Bagbin, Minority Leader of Parliament said the nation was looking up to the people of the Central Region to liberate the country economically and politically by rallying their support for Professor Evans Atta Mills to enable him win massively the December elections. He described Prof. Mills as a man of peace and the one who does not tell lies in order to win favours and that this should be the kind of leader Ghanaians should vote into a leadership position and not a person who does not have the welfare of people at heart.
He said Ghanaians were looking for salvation and that they could only get it if they vote the NDC back into power stressing that the NPP only came to enrich themselves with HIPC funds but failing to fulfil their campaign promises.
He said the NPP was claiming to have brought some development through the adoption of HIPC, but stressed that how can a nation have a "Golden Age of Business" when it was in HIPC situation, adding that it was because of this that all Ghanaian businesses were collapsing. He said the NDC was the party for women and the youth and asked that Ghanaians should consider their living conditions and vote wisely in the December elections.
He urged them to vote for their parliamentary candidate, Mr Baton Oduro since he was a man of substance and could fully represent them in Parliament
Mr Oduro urged those who were not able to take their photographs during the photo taking exercise to endeavour to do so during the mopping up to enable them exercise their franchise in December. He tasked the members and supporters to embark on a house-to-house campaign to win more people for the party, which would take it to victory in December.
