Presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP,) Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, is asking the people of the three northern regions – Upper East and West and the Northern region to call president John Dramani Mahama and their representatives at Ghana’s Parliament home for woefully failing them.
Speaking at a rally in Navrongo in the Upper East region, Dr. Nduom, said that Ghana in her current state needs help and it is only the PPP that can help her.
He told the people that the region is the second poorest region in Ghana despite the numerous resources nature has bequeath them and the fact that the people there are hardworking people.
“If you vote for someone for four years and he is unable to deliver, you retire him or her. If they give you money, take it and Insha Allah [By the grace of God in the Hausa parlance] vote against them,” he charged.
Dr. Nduom added that all the three northern regions have bad roads, deprived or no schools at all, no potable water in most parts and therefore should vote for change and for jobs.
“Bring your current MPs (Members of Parliament) home. Mahama should go home, he has failed. Vote for Papa Kwesi Nduom to be president. I have the track record. Your MPs and the president have done nothing for you to deserve another four years.”
…All over the world change is happening. Same should happen in Ghana. Today, a man who nobody thought would be president has been elected in America. Same has happened in Benin. I will be next and people will be shocked. Help make that happen,” he charged the people.
The PPP leader chided President Mahama over his 3 million job promise in his second term saying he [President Mahama] has been in government for almost eight years if he could bring jobs he would have done that.
He warned that four more years for President Mahama will bring untold hardships.
Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP,) Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-Adddo was not spared either.
Dr. Nduom wondered where had been all these years that he is now seeing that a factory each could be sent to each district.
“Nana Addo doesn’t have any job creation experience. Don’t be deceived by him.”
Dr. Nduom is on a four-day tour of the three northern regions.
He has held several rallies in most of the constituencies the three regions and has met with traditional leaders who received him well and assured him of the supports of the gods.
The business mogul was in Kunbumgu, Bongo, Chiana, Navrongo where he held mammoth rallies and urged the people to vote for jobs, quality free education and infrastructural development.
Dr. Nduom is expected to round of his campaign today and move to the Central region for a rally on Saturday.
