Akufo Addo mobbed in Eastern Region

Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo, Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the 2012 elections received a rousing from the residents of Mpraeso as he began his nation- wide campaign from the Eastern Region.

The eight- day tour dubbed “listening campaign” would take Nana Addo to constituencies such as Afram Plains North, Afram Plains South, New Abirem, Atiwa, Fanteakwa, Suhum, Mpraeso and Abetifi, where he had already visited.

Nana Addo was accompanied by Mr Lord Commey, Director of Operations for the campaign, Mr Kwabena Boakye Ayrako, Campaign Manager, Mr Seth Acheampong, Member of Parliament (MP) for Mpraeso, and all the regional executive of the party.

From Nkawkaw through Atibie, Mpraeso, Bepong, Obemeng, and other communities, Nana Akufo Addo was mobbed by a joyous crowd of women, both young and old, who sang party songs to welcome him. Nana Addo interacted with petty traders, market women, shoppers and commuters, shaking hand and tapping every shoulder that came his

Nana Akuffo Addo, who lost the 2008 election, told the crowd that he came to announce his readiness and determination to work hard to recapture power in 2012 from the National Democratic Congress (NDC), in order to bring back hope and smiles to the majority of Ghanaians. He expressed optimism in winning the 2012 election and urged the people to pray for him for good health.

At Ntomam, a farming community in the Mpraeso constituency, which has one of the biggest market centres in the Kwahu South District, Nana Akuffo Addo interacted with the market women and appealed to them to vote for the NPP, come 2012, to continue the good work of former President Kufuor.

He assured them that when he becomes president, he would focus on rural development, with the construction of feeder roads, rural electrification, infrastructure, school blocks, food security and
poverty reduction, as his major priorities.

Nana Akuffo Addo also visited the Atibie government hospital where he interacted with the nurses, doctors and patients and assured them of the commitment of the NPP government to ensure the effective operation of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

He said the NPP government, led by the former president Agyekum Kufuor, introduced the NHIS to make health care accessible to every
Ghanaian, but criticised the current government for not doing enough to make the scheme work effectively as expected. Nana Akuffo Addo said the NPP was the only party that could change the fortunes of the country.


Don’t Maintain NDC In 2012 - Akufo Addo

Kwahu Praso, July 5, GNA - Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo- Addo, Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has called on the electorate not to maintain the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government in 2012.

He said considering the abysmal performance of the NDC government, led by President Atta Mills since he assumed office two and half years ago, the nation would be in a serious crisis if allowed to continue after 2012.

Nana Akuffo- Addo therefore appealed to the electorate to vote massively for the NPP and return it to power in 2012, to save Ghanaians from the economic hardship they were going through in the
hands of the NDC government. The NPP presidential candidate made the call when he interacted with the people of Kwahu Praso, in the Mpraeso Constituency, as part of his nationwide campaign tour.

Nana Akuffo-Addo told the people that when the NPP was in power, a lot of interventions were introduced to better the lot of Ghanaians, which included the National Health Insurance Scheme, the Capitation Grant, the School Feeding Programme, the Metro Mass Transport Service and many more programmes.

He said since the NDC took over, all those interventions were not functioning well, due to the fact that they had no idea of managing them properly.

Nana Akuffo-Addo said Ghana under NPP for eight years saw tremendous improvement in economic growth, rule of law, good governance, and the fight against corruption, poverty reduction and food security.

He said Ghana gained a lot of respect among the international community, which resulted in the country being invited to the G 8 summit, adding that, ‘it did not come as a matter of chance but as a
result of hard work under the able leadership of President Kufour’. Nana Akuffo-Addo assured that when he becomes president, he would encourage teachers to accept postings to the rural areas, and that, his government would provide accommodation for teachers in rural communities.

He cautioned the people not to be swayed by the wild propaganda of the NDC, but rather analyse issues and judge for themselves if they were better off under the NDC than the NPP.

The NPP presidential candidate visited other communities such as Sukwa, Yirenkyikrom, Antwikrom, Ahodwo, Mframa, Koranteg, Osubinso, Adumfa and Besease all in the Mpraeso constituency.
