The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has appealed to all eligible voters in the country, ahead of the 7th December presidential and parliamentary elections, to come out in the numbers, and vote massively for him and the New Patriotic Party.
According to Akufo-Addo, the policies and programmes implemented by his government, since his assumption of office in 2017, such as Free SHS, 1-District-1-Factory, and Planting for Food and Jobs, have resulted in the enhancement of the living standards of Ghanaians.
Embarking on a day’s campaign tour of the Western Region, on Sunday, 29th November 2020, which saw him visit Sekondi, Kwesimintsim, Mpohor, Agona Nkwanta, Tarkwa, Bogoso and Akropong, the President stated that “with four more for Nana and the NPP, we will do even more for you.”
Whilst in Tarkwa, the President commissioned a 5-Storey Administration Block for the Tarkwa Campus of the University of Mines and Technology. He also commissioned the GNPC School of Petroleum Studies.
The school project, with an ultra-modern science laboratory, cost GH¢12 million and forms part of GNPC’s efforts at building local capacity for Ghana’s petroleum sector locally, to maximize value retention.
To the electorate, the President added that “everyone who has registered and is in possession of a voter ID card should not sit at home, and assume that ‘Nana has already won, so I won’t vote’. If you haven’t voted, Nana hasn’t won.” “So everyone should leave their homes on 7th December, go to your respective polling stations and vote massively for Nana and the NPP. That is what will give us a decisive victory we are after.”
With the NPP in control of one hundred and sixty-nine (169) seats in Parliament, President Akufo-Addo told residents of the Western Region of the importance of maintaining a majority of seats in Parliament.
The President expounded that a majority of seats in Parliament is what will strengthen his hand in government, and will pave the way for the implementation of policies and programmes that will help move Ghana onto the path of progress and prosperity.
