Top NDC communicator promises to "stowaway" supporters

The communications director of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Solomon Nkansah, says the Mahama-led administration will give the youth of Takoradi the chance to illegally travel (stowaway) if they vote NDC.

Addressing supporters of the NDC at New Takoradi, a fishing community in the constituency is said to have a high number of stowaways in the country, during the campaign launch of the deputy Western Regional Minister and NDC parliamentary candidate for New Takoradi, Alfred Ekow Gyan, Samuel Nkansah argues that "more ships coming into the harbour will making it easy for the youth to embark on their stowaway".

"How many of the Takoradi boys were able to stowaway during the NPP era? They were always arrested and prosecuted. There are numerous of our brothers whose parents were unable to travel overseas but with the presence of harbours they themselves have been able to travel overseas,” Solomon Nkansah stated.

The International Organization of Migration (IOM) reveals that more than 4,000 Ghanaians illegally travelled by boat to Italy between January and December 2015 in search of greener pastures

The promise by Solomon Nkansah follows the troubling rates of illegal migration in West Africa as shown by the International Organization of Migration (IOM). It remains unclear what the NDC communicator meant with regards the "stowaway-campaign" but it stays sure that the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) may use this campaign message against the NDC ahead of the December elections.
