Everything in tatters in Ghana – Akufo-Addo

Nana Akufo Addo1New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo has said every sector is collapsing under the Mahama administration.

“The Mahama government has shown that it is incompetent and cannot be trusted to do the job,” Akufo-Addo said when he visited Agona West in the Central region on a five-day tour.

“Be it businesses or agriculture, every aspect of the economy is in tatters. I am coming to fix all of this. I am going to assemble an array of talented men and women who will fix the economy, so we can bring relief, wealth and prosperity to every part of Ghana.”

He added: “There is hardship everywhere and the Ghanaian is suffering. But we can change this. I am asking for your vote, so we can change Ghana and bring jobs for our unemployed youth. For you, market women, a change in government will also mean an opportunity for the monetary system in Ghana to be fixed so you can also get back on your feet again.

“Ghana, a land filled with an abundance of human and natural resources, was not destined to be a poor country. We can do something about our circumstances, and that can only come about when I have your vote and your support.”

A huge crowd welcomed Nana Addo during his tour.

In the company of the NPP’s parliamentary candidate for the constituency, Cynthia Morrison, the NPP flagbearer first paid a courtesy call on Nana Aseidu Kobina Botwe II, Chief of Agona Swedru, before moving to the Swedru Central Market to interact with market women, traders, business owners and commercial drivers.

Visit to Gomoa Central
Nana Akufo-Addo’s next port of call was the Gomoa Central constituency, where he visited Abosso and Gomoa Lome. There also, hundreds of ecstatic residents abandoned their business activities in a bid to catch a glimpse of the NPP flagbearer and welcome him into the constituency.

Addressing a durbar of Chiefs at Gomoa Lome, in the presence of a large crowd of residents, he explained that bad governance is the reason why every Ghanaian, in every part of the country is experiencing untold levels of hardship, and therefore it is imperative that Ghanaians get a c

“I want residents of Gomoa Lome to help push me and the NPP into Jubilee House. We are not coming into office because we want to steal your money or laud ourselves over Ghanaians. We are coming into office to serve, work hard and bring prosperity to all. That is why we, in the NPP, are in politics,” he added.

According to Akufo-Addo, there will be no politics of discrimination along the lines of political, ethnic or religious affiliations, under his government.

“There won’t be a situation, as is the case now, where because you’re an NPP member, your cocoa farm will not be sprayed, or you will not get cocoa seedlings. That is not the kind of work we are coming to do. We are coming to work for everybody,” he indicated, to a rousing applause from the gathering.
