A new meaning to the positions of the ruling NPP and opposition NDC on the ballot paper has emerged as Vice President Bawumia has explained that the number one position of NPP on the ballot paper signifies one step forward in Ghana’s development while the number two position signifies two steps backwards in Ghana’s development.
The Vice President made these comments during the launch of the ‘IAM4NANA’ fundraising campaign to support Nana Akufo-Addo prior to December elections.
“We don’t want to repeat that dance; one step forward two steps backwards. Interestingly and by the grace of God, when the balloting numbers came, he is number one. NDC is number two. If you choose NPP you are going to take a step forward. If you choose NDC you are going to taking two steps backwards. And that is what it is. One step forward and two steps backwards.
That is the choice Ghanaians face and we have to make sure that we protect the gains that the leadership of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has brought to Ghanaians. We can’t risk our free SHS, the jobs, NABCO and all the policies”.
Touching on some of the promises of the NPP government Dr Bawumia said ““We have done so much in the almost four years that we have been in charge. We promised Free SHS and we delivered. We delivered one ambulance per constituency, as promised. The President promised our Lights (power) will stay on and he has delivered. The President promised bountiful Agriculture and he has delivered. The President promised One District One Factory and he is delivering. He promised One Village One Dam and he is delivering. He promised roads and he is delivering. Our management of the invisible enemy, the Covid pandemic has been praised as amongst the best in the world..”
He added. “After almost four years of stellar, decisive competent leadership, we cannot go back to the era of incompetent, visionless leadership. We owe ourselves and generations unborn a duty to ensure the NPP is given another term under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to continue with his transformational leadership.”
“Ghana needs a stable, firm, and competent leader’s hands over the next few years to ensure we protect the progress we have made together, and to transform Ghana for all Ghanaians,” he told party faithful’s.
The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has today launched the ‘IAM4NANA’ fundraising campaign to support Nana Akufo-Addo prior to December elections.
The party has outlined a series of activities to raise fund to support the campaign. Some of these platforms include the website iam4nana.com, shortcode, adopting a polling station, among others.
