The NPP’s presidential candidate for the 2016 elections brought business and commercial activities to a standstill in Ashiaman on Wednesday when he visited the area.
In the company of the NPP’s parliamentary candidate for the constituency, Alhaji Labarran Yakubu, the New Patriotic Party flagbearer visited key areas in the constituency such as Old Turaku, Fitter Line, Asikafuo Ambantem, and Dagomba line, where he interacted with an array of persons, including, residents, market women, small business owners, artisans, and hundreds of unemployed young men and women.
Nana Addo told the mammoth gathering he acknowledges the difficult conditions facing Ghanaian businesses under the Mahama government; he assured them that an Akufo-Addo government, God-willing from January 2017, will make Ghana work again.
“Business are collapsing, there is hardship everywhere and the Ghanaian is suffering. But we can change this. I am asking for your vote, so we can change Ghana and bring jobs for our unemployed youth. For you, business owners, a change in government will also mean an opportunity for your businesses to be revived, to generate wealth and jobs for the people. Ghana, a land filled with an abundance of human and natural resources, was not destined to be a poor country. We can do something about our circumstances, and that can only come about when I have your vote,” he said.
“I know you have heard all kinds of things about Akufo-Addo here. They say this, they say that. All they say about me is not true. You are seeing me here for yourself. Here I am, a small man with a big heart for Ghana,” he opined.
Nana Akufo-Addo’s visit today brings to and end the first phase of his 4-day tour of the Greater Accra Region.
