..And Charges Western Execs To Win More Seats

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has charged regional and constituency executives, as well as the party’s parliamentary candidates from the Western Region, to win the majority of popular votes and seats in the region, as this will guarantee an NPP victory in the 2016 elections.

According to Nana Akufo-Addo, Ghana’s electoral history in the 4th Republic has shown that “you have to be able to win Western Region to be able to win a national election to be able to form a government.” He noted that in as much as the people of Ghana are looking up to the NPP to win the November 7 elections, the entire party is also looking up to the leadership of the party in the region to ensure that the Western Region becomes a stronghold of the party once again.

The NPP flagbearer made this known on Monday, February 15, when he addressed regional and constituency executives of the party at the GNAT Hall in Takoradi, after the one-week funeral ceremony of the late Ben Kwaw, former acting Western Regional NPP Chairman.  Nana Akufo-Addo, who indicated that the party must honour the memory of fallen patriots like the late Ben Kwaw with victory in the November polls, stressed that the party cannot afford to relinquish a single vote in the metropolis of the Western Region.

“Be it in Sekondi, Takoradi, Effia, Kwesimintsim, Essikadu Ketan, Ahanta West, Shama, Mpohor, Wassa, this year, we must get good news from all of these constituencies. If we are to get this, it depends on the hard work we must all do. The hard work means that in every part of the region, we must send the NPP’s message of hope to every Ghanaian voter,” he said.

He continued: “The nation is in tatters, but [President] Kufuor showed the nation that its fortunes can be turned around, and the country put right back on track. That is the message we must send to all – that we are coming to put Ghana back onto the path of progress and prosperity. We, in the NPP, have the men and women, with the knowledge and skill, to give this country a first class government, which will lift the masses from abject poverty and deliver jobs and prosperity for all.”

Nana Akufo-Addo, in this regard, appealed for the support of all members of the party, adding that “this election is not for us to lose. Let’s not do that. Let’s win it and form a government. What is happening in Cote d’Ivoire next door, we can do better than that in Ghana. Let’s all work together.”

To the new acting Chairman, Francis Ndede Siah, Nana Akufo-Addo admonished him “to stand firm and be resolute, for God is with you” on his assumption of the mantle of leadership of the party in the region, and ensure that the party in the region is united and prepared to work hard for an NPP victory on November 7, 2016.
