Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has appealed to Ghanaians not to be deceived by 'empty promises' ahead of the general elections.
According to him, voting in this year’s election should be devoid of politics of tribalism and ethnicity but rather on competence and the track-record of the various political parties and their respective candidates, and their ability to deliver decent standards of living for the citizenry.
