The newly-elected parliamentary candidate for the Adenta constituency, Lawyer Yaw Buaben Asamoa, has said Ghanaians are fed up with the economic hardship being experienced under President John Mahama to the extent they would want to give Nana Akufo-Addo a try.
“The people of Ghana are fed up they want to try you, Nana Akufu-Addo. It is not about governance anymore because the people of Ghana now understand that we, New Patriotic Party (NPP), can deliver governance. It is now about getting us into power,” a statement released by the Communications Directorate of the elephant family Monday quoted him as saying.
Asamoa, who paid a courtesy call on Akufo-Addo Thursday said Ghanaians have come to the realization that it is only the NPP-led government under his leadership that can rescue them from the economic hardships, widespread and rampant corruption, and rising levels of unemployment the country has been experiencing under President Mahama.
He stated further that, “Adenta wants you in power. When you are in power, we will also be there with you, and we are going to make sure that we help to make it a reality.”
On the 2016 parliamentary election, Yaw Buaben Asamoa noted that the feeling in the Adenta Constituency is that the NPP must reclaim the seat, which it lost in 2008 to the NDC.
“We have a great opportunity, this time, to win”, he said, adding that “in spite of us all not being here, we believe that everything will come together as we go along. I want to pledge that I will work with them (constituency executives), I will listen to them, I will follow their instructions, build a coalition of the willing, and, Insha Allah, we will deliver the Adenta seat.”
