This was when he paid a courtesy on the chiefs.
Business activities at Nyinahin, the district capital, for hours came to standstill, as the people gathered on the streets, with some traders leaving behind their wares to catch a glimpse and listen to him.
Nana Akufo-Addo said he would continue with the good works and add to the social interventions of the Kufuor Administration, to improve the lives of Ghanaians.
The NPP would restore hope and confidence to the people through well-thought out economic policies and good governance.
The private sector and education would receive more attention and support to anchor the country’s socio-economic development.
He encouraged all qualified voters to make sure that they get their names in the electoral roll when the voters’ registration exercise begins.
Nana Oti Buaduah III, the Akwamuhene of the Nyinahin Traditional Area, thanked the NPP Flag-bearer for the courtesy call and appealed to all politicians to ensure decency and civility as they campaigned for support ahead of the 2012 general elections.
