The Presidential Candidate of the Convention Peoples Party, George O. Aggudey has completed a three day tour of the Volta Region, and called on Ghanaians to be mindful of the negative effects of violence and the politics of deceit and lies on the mindsets of the people.

He said a nation which is struggling to get out of the economic doldrum should not allow majority of its people to be deceived by self seeking politicians. Addressing Chiefs, opinion leaders, party faithful and supporters at different fora in the Volta region to solicit their votes for the December general elections, George Aggudey reminded the people about the achievements of the CPP during the first republic and asked them to vote massively for the party to get the mandate to govern the country.

He said the reawakening call for the return to power of CPP is to ensure that the country gets itself out of the dark period of globe trotting and bad policy initiatives. Mr Aggudey emphasised that the CPP government will embark on a massive economic development programme which will fulfil the overwhelming desire of the people for a higher standard of living.

His campaign to the Volta region focused on key issues such as self sustaining agricultural production, solving unemployment, accessible and affordable pre university education, industrial revival and affordable health care among others.

The presidential candidate and his entourage were given a tumultuous welcome anywhere that they visited by the people particularly the youth who convereged in their numbers to catch a glimpse of the candidate amidst slogan like koklo tsu, etee momo, Aggudey show boy and others.

The three day campaign tour took the campaign team to Kpandu, Vakpo, Anfoega, Hohoe, Ho, Adaklu, Adidome, Sogakope and Tefle.

Mr Aggudey noted that elections are won at polling stations and urged party executives to intensify their organisation and mandate faithful party agents to man the ballot boxes on the day of election.
