According to the flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, a vote for the incumbent President, John Dramani Mahama or the New Patriotic Party's Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is a wasted vote.
Mr Nduom maintains that both the incumbent and the main opposition parties - NDC and NPP respectively, have not been able to transform Ghana under their various terms in office positively.
The founder of the PPP also maintained that NPP and NDC frontrunners, John Mahama and Nana Akufo-Addo, were only making empty promises to Ghanaians. He urged Ghanaians to vote them out, as a vote for either party would result in four years of bad governance.
“If you vote badly, it will affect you for four years - it will lead to poverty, disease and unemployment.”
So “vote for jobs, potable water, good roads, stable electricity supply, access to good health care among others,” Dr Nduom told the people of Manso in the Mpohor constituency of the Western region.
“If you vote for someone who does not give you what they promised, you have wasted your vote,” the business mogul said in the presence of his running mate Ms Brigette Dzogbenuku.

The presidential hopeful also noted that the President John Mahama and Nana Addo were engaged in the practice of making empty promises as a way to garner votes from Ghanaians. He particular cited Nana Addo's "One Village - One Factory" promise as a desperate attempt to win votes.
“Mahama said he would create 1 million jobs when he wins the elections… those are vague promises. Nana Addo says he will send a factory each to each town. I wonder why he [Nana Addo] waited till now… the answer is simple… he can’t do it,” Dr Nduom stated.
