Chief of the Mafi traditional area Togbe Atatim IV has expressed confidence that the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is 'capable' of steering the affairs of Ghana should he be elected as president.
Commending the NPP flag bearer for the healthy campaign he is running, Togbe Atatim admonished all other presidential candidates in this year’s election to follow suit and “conduct their campaigns in a healthy such manner, so that peace will not elude us (Ghanaians). Let us (people of Volta Region) value each other and let us act in a give and take manner, in a healthy way, and let us (Ghanaians) not resort to intemperate language and fight.”
According to him, perceived strongholds of political parties should not have characteristics based on tribalism, opportunism and elitism, and urged the electorate not to pay heed to politicians who thrive on tribalism.
Nana Akuffo Addo is at he Volta Region for a four-day tour of the region as part of efforts to attract voters ahead of the November 7 general elections.
