Cape Coast, Aug.14,
GNA – Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, Director of Elections of the National Democratic
Congress (NDC), says Ghanaians should not make the mistake to vote the New
Patriotic Party (NPP) into power.
According to him
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, the Presidential Candidate of NPP has disintegrated
and left the party tattered with more than two thousand members suspended after
the former President, John Agyekum Kufuor handed over the fortunes of the NPP
Mr. Ofosu Ampofo who
was addressing the national campaign launch of the NDC Party at the 16,000 capacity
new Cape Coast stadium on Sunday, questioned how Nana Addo who could not handle
his own party could rule the country and unite the people
The Campaign is on
the theme: “Changing lives, changing Ghana.”
“The peace and unity
of this country cannot be left in the hands of such a person,” he said adding
that Nana Addo could not continue former President Kufuor’s legacy for the
party and cannot unite Ghanaians and seek a better agenda for them.
Mr Ampofo enumerated
how President John Mahama had unified the NDC and making giant strides in
governance and said the future and fortunes of the country could be guaranteed
He in his regard
asked Ghanaians to vote for the President to continue with his “transformation
and changing lives agenda, saying all sitting Presidents were given two terms
and so “the tradition must go on”, he added.
The Minister of
Health, Mr Alex Segbefia said President Mahama had demonstrated to the
international community that he is a champion where health infrastructure is
He listed a number
of health facilities that have been upgraded under his administration to
include the Tamale Teaching Hospital, which is receiving a second phase, the
Cape Coast Regional Hospital to a Teaching Hospital the construction of a
military hospital in Kumasi among others.
For his part, Mr
Okudzeto Ablakwa, Deputy Minister of Education, said the NDC is formidable and
united and respects the divergent views and opinions of all members.
He said the party is
very proud of its achievements, particularly on education where 1,600 schools
under trees have been eliminated, nine new community senior high schools
inaugurated and the achievement of gender parity at the primary level.
He said more would
be unveiled under the next administration of the NDC and urged Ghanaians to
give the party another chance.
