General News of Sunday, 27 December 2015
Vice president Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has justified the need for Ghanaians to retain the Mahama-led National Democratic Congress (NDC) in power ahead of the 2016 general elections.
According to him, in spite of the socio-economic challenges, government has been able to maintain the peace and stability of the country.
Mr. Amissah-Arthur addressing the University of Cape Coast branch of Tertiary Educational Institutions Network (TEIN) was skeptical about the opposition New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) ability to maintain the stability of the country should it win the 2016 general elections.
In his view, an opposition party characterized by violence which has led to the death of its members is not worthy of leading a peaceful nation like Ghana.
“If they can with their own people like this, how much more the NDC” he quizzed.
The vice president maintained that “John Mahama guarantees the stability and the peace of this country [which] allows us all to progress rather than the other side [NPP]”.
He charged the youth is work assiduously to make the NDC attractive to the over 50 percent of Ghanaians who have not decided who to vote for in 2016.
“More than half of the Ghanaian people have not decided yet who they want to vote for. It means that we need to do well to convince them to vote for NDC”.
Kwesi Amissah-Arthur is confident with hard work and determination; the Mahama-led government will surmount the challenges.
