AFAG Endorses Akufo-Addo
Dr. Nana Ayew Afriyie, Chairman of AFAG, in a release said Nana Addo is the right man to capture power from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2016 general elections.
‘I will go for Nana Addo on any day because he is accessible, kind-hearted, humour filled and youth focused.
‘He has a strong passion for Ghana’s development. Get closer to him and you will testify how selfless and visionary he is,’ the Chairman said.
He said Nana Addo has a firm belief in God and bubbles with ideas, stating that ‘If he beats the 2nd runner up by 50%+ 1, then I suggest an internal meeting with the remaining four aspirants to endorse him.’
‘In this regard, another national conference will be a waste of time. He is my choice in moving Ghana forward at 2016 elections,’ Dr. Afriyie said.
