Flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo Addo says Voltarians have nothing to fear should he become president of Ghana.
Starting a four-day tour of the region Nana Addo noted that it is not a secret that the relation between the NPP and the Volta Region has not been a particularly good one, and the purpose for his tour is to help improve that relationship.
“You have nothing to fear in me, nothing whatsoever to fear in me. J.A. Kufuor in the eight years that he was in office indicated to the people of the region and to the Ghanaians that it was possible to rule Ghana without discrimination, and without ill-will or favour towards any particular person, but in the overall interest of our country. Volta Region got many of the things it was entitled to in his era. I am coming to build on that legacy and add more to it,” Nana Addo assured the Anwomefia of Anloga, Togbui Sri III, in the presence of 40 of his sub-chiefs from the Anlo State.
The Volta region is the stronghold of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), but the NPP said it will not discriminate against them if they come to power.
