The New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for the Sunyani East Constituency in the Brong Ahafo region, Mr. Kwaku Ameyaw-Cheremeh launched his campaign over the weekend at Atronie.
Mr. Ameyaw-Cheremeh, at the rally, urged the supporters to vote out the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government to prevent them from putting the country into a mess.
“If we are in a vehicle and we remain quiet for the driver to plunge us into a ditch, we will all die as a result. We gave him (John Mahama) four years. It is now time for you and me to make our intentions clear on the 7th of December. Let us tell Mahama that he should step aside for Nana Akufo Addo to continue.”
Mr. Ameyaw-Cheremeh who is also the incumbent MP for the area added that the NDC would do worse if voted into power again.
“John Mahama doesn’t know how to go about his duties. Ideally, if you are taught something by your teachers or friends, you learn from it. Our president says ‘Yen Tie Obiaa’ (meaning, we won’t listen to anybody). He said this when he knew he would stand again for the presidency, what of when he is given a second term and wouldn’t need our votes again? Ghanaians, let us advise ourselves. What we pray for is that you vote massively for the NPP on the 7th of December. Vote for Nana Akufo Addo to be president. Vote for Kwasi Ameyaw-Cheremeh as MP. God bless you all.”
The Regional Chairman, Kwaku Asuma Kyeremeh, Deputy General Secretary, Nana Obiri Boahen, and MP for Sunyani West, Ignatius Baffuor Awuah were part of the NPP Executives present at the event.
Local traders took advantage of the rally to increase their sales.
Some party supporters also benefited from a free health screening and drug dispensing organized by the NPP.
