Nana Akufo-Addo has asked the people of Bunkpurugu in the Northern Region to help him make it to Jubilee House in the 7 December polls.
The three-time flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is currently in the region campaigning.
He said: “I’ve tried once to open the door of Ghana; it didn’t happen; I’ve tried the second time to open the door of Ghana; it didn’t open; I’m making a third effort to open the door of Ghana; this time I want your support to be able to do so. I want your support so we can go into Jubilee House and begin to rebuild our country and bring prosperity to all parts of Ghana.”
Mr Akufo-Addo, who has promised to build a factory in each of the 216 districts in the country as well as put up an irrigation dam in every farming village in the northern part of Ghana, told the crowd: “Ghana is not a poor country; we’re not a poor people. It is poor governance that has brought us to where we are.
“We are looking to come to office to put in place top policies that will bring about the revival of our nation and for that we need your support so that in December this year, all of us, together, will say: ‘John Dramani Mahama, President of the Republic, bye bye.’”
