The presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo and his entourage stormed Edina Traditional Council in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abram (KEEA) Municipality of the Central Region to seek ancestral blessing as part of his ‘Rise and Build’ campaign.

As at 9:30am, supporters, chiefs and queen mothers were patiently waiting at the premises of the Traditional Council to catch a glimpse of Nana Addo and his entourage.

The presidential candidate earlier travelled to the ATL FM, a radio station at the University of Cape Coast (UCC) for an interview to outline his vision for the people of Ghana.

Nana Addo and his entourage arrived at the palace around 11am to pay a courtesy call on the Paramount Chief of the area, Nana Kojo Conduah and the supporters chanted songs amidst drumming and dancing.

Nana Addo donated an undisclosed amount of money and bottles of schnapps to the traditional council to pray for him to enable him win the 2016 general elections.

Nana Kojo Conduah, who was touched by the comments of Nana Addo, prayed for him for more than 10 minutes.

He thanked Nana Addo for accepting the verdict of the Supreme Court in the election petition which promoted peace in the country.

The presidential candidate and his entourage held a meeting with parliamentary candidates, aspirants, former District Chief Executives (DCEs), constituencies and regional executives, artisans as well as patrons and assembly members at Manna Height at Mankessim.

Addressing the crowd, Nana Akufo-Addo emphatically stated that ‘although I am not a perfect man, I am an honest man who would not steal money when given the nod in order to make Ghanaians happy.

‘I know the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government has collapsed all social interventions introduced by former President John Agyekum Kufuor administration and I promise you my government would resuscitate all collapsed industries and manufacturing companies as part of efforts to bring the fragile economy back on track.’

The NPP flagbeaer said an NPP administration would diversify and modernize agriculture to help increase production, adding that due to bad management of the NDC government cocoa production has not seen any significant growth and Ghanaians were forced to import cocoa from Ivory Coast.

He said adequate steps would be taken to improve the supply of fertilizers, chemicals and incentive to farmers as well as the construction of dams to increase production.

He expressed concern about the country’s high debt and appealed to Ghanaians to vote against the NDC in the 2016 general elections.

The NPP flagbeaer said agriculture is the backbone of every economy and that his government would pay attention to farmers and fishermen and improve their work.

He gave assurance that his government would improve the economy to free Ghanaians from poverty and other social ills.

Nana Addo predicted landslide victory in the 2016 general elections in the Central region, stating that the Central region, which is a swing one, would fall to NPP due to enthusiasm and hard work of the regional, constituency and polling station executives of the party.

The former Minister of Trade and Industry, Alan Kodwo Kyeremanten was happy with the rousing welcome given to them, noting that the party would win the 2016 general elections.

Mr Kyeremanten hinted that Nana Addo’s administration would not only manage the economy but fix it for the betterment of Ghanaians.

The Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joe Ghartey called on supporters of the party to bury their differences and work hard for the party to win the 2016 general elections.

Nana Addo also paid courtesy call on the Omanhene of Swedru, Nana Botche II and charged supporters of the party to work hard with humility and capture power.

Nana Addo was accompanied by the First National Vice Chairman of the party, Freddie Blay, the Deputy General Secretary of NPP, Nana Obiri Boahene, Alan Kyeremanten, Dr Kofi Konadu Apraku, Yaw Osafo Marfo, Kwamena Bartels, Elizabeth Ohene, Stephen Asamoah Boateng and other top officials of the party.
