This is to congratulate the constituency and regional executives of the New Patriotic Party in the Ashanti region, the NPP Members of Parliament from the Ashanti caucus, and members of the planning committee for the successful nature of Tuesday’s “Ya YƐ dƐn” demonstration.
Particularly, I congratulate the over five hundred thousand (500,000) Ghanaians who were present at the demonstration.
Clearly and unequivocally, they voiced out their concerns and displeasure about the growing levels of economic hardships they are facing on a daily basis under the current NDC government.
Yesterday’s demonstration was also a clear message to all NPP faithful. Ghanaians are very unhappy with their lot, and expect us to rescue them from the despondency, rising cost of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment and widespread corruption they have been plunged into by President John Mahama and his NDC government. We dare not fail them, and can only do so with a united front.
As we embark on the journey of electing a presidential candidate for the 2016 elections, I ask all NPP members to be reminded of the scenes of distressed Ghanaians at the demonstration who are yearning for the NPP’s return to power.
We must show to Ghanaians that we have the policies and programmes to transform our country, and move them out of the current mess into which our beloved Ghana has been engulfed.
With determination, unity, hardwork and honest leadership, Ghana can overcome her current problems and achieve the potential which inspired our forefathers to begin the struggle for freedom and independence. Long live Ghana! God bless us all.
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo
