The 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has asked Ghanaians to expect more from him if he is elected president of the republic.
Addressing a huge crowd of market women in the Ashanti regional capital on Thursday, Nana Addo said “I want you to put your trust in me and put Ghana under an Akufo-Addo government”.
“My government, I assure you, will manage the resources of this country prudently and put the country back onto the path of progress and prosperity. I am not coming into office to steal your money. I am not seeking your mandate because I want to enrich myself. No! I am coming to assemble a first class government whose sole aim will be to bring relief to all Ghanaians. I am coming so all Ghanaians, without discrimination, can make a decent living,” he said.
He also pleaded with the market women to help send the NPP’s message of hope to every corner of the Ashanti Region, so that “the NPP will record a massive margin of victory in the Ashanti Region, and across the country, when the results of the 2016 elections are declared.”
The NPP flagbearer’s visit was to consoled victims of two separate fire outbreaks in Kumasi, which hit the Kumasi Central Market and the ‘Dagomba Line’ area, in Aboabo, within a spate of five days.
Nana Addo contributed 200 bags of cement towards the rebuilding of the market.
