Presidential nominee of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has said Dagbon must unite again for accelerated development.
According to him, Dagombas cannot continue to be divided on Abudu and Andani lines, hence his incessant calls for unity and reconciliation in Dagbon.
Nana Akufo-Addo raised this concern when he paid courtesy calls on three Chiefs in the Tamale Metropolis, including the Chief of Tamale Naa Dakpema Dawuni Alhassan.
He reassured them that with him as the next President, they should have a strong partner in restoring the dignity of the Dagbon Kingdom.
He appealed to the chiefs to continue praying and support his third term bid. Nana Akufo Addo promised to galvanize Ghanaians for constructive purposes when voted into office. He said Ghana is not broke; but that bad leadership is the cause of the nation’s economic difficulties.
