The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) is planning to embark on more landmark projects in the Ashanti Region before the country goes to polls in 2016 to elect a new president.
Solomon Nkansah, the National Communications Officer of the NDC, stated that it is the hope of the NDC that the people in the Ashanti Region would reciprocate their gesture with more votes in 2016.
“The NDC government headed by President John Dramani Mahama will embark on more development projects in the Ashanti Region and we hope the people will reciprocate the love with votes in 2016.”
Addressing a press conference in Kumasi, Mr Nkansah stated emphatically that the Ashanti Region was important to the NDC with regard to the attainment of votes in the upcoming national polls.
He was of the conviction that the best way for the NDC to accrue more votes in the Ashanti Region was for the ruling party to channel projects into the area to better the lives of the people.
The NDC Communications Director recounted how the past NDC administrations, headed by Rawlings and Mills, developed the Ashanti Region in the area of roads, education, water supply, just to mention a few.
“All the landmark projects in the Ashanti Region were done by NDC administrations. Our political party has the development of Ashanti Region and Ghana in general at heart.”
Mr Nkansah, the NDC propagandist, claimed that the NDC administrations had been faithful to the people of the Ashanti Region in terms of development projects, noting that President Mahama’s government was also developing the Ashanti Region. According to him, President Mahama will sustain his good works for the people of the Ashanti Region to the extent that the people in the area will willingly vote massively for the NDC in 2016.
Mr Nkansah appealed to the media to work hand-in-hand with the ruling NDC administration so that the government’s projects and programmes aimed at bettering the lives of the people could be publicised.
Brimming with confidence, the NDC top official predicted a landslide victory for the NDC in 2016, insisting that President Mahama’s administration had managed the country well and that the electorate would retain the NDC to continue its good works.
The NDC communicators converged in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi, to strategise on how to boost the party’s communication network and climaxed the event with the press briefing.
