Nana Addo speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the Kobreso NPP Youth Wing in the Offinso North constituency, in the Ashanti region, on Friday March 25, 2016, he said "If you, the youth, feel comfortable with the current situation, then vote for the NDC and continuity. However, if you are dissatisfied with your current situation, then vote for change in November. We are living today in hardships and difficulties. This is not the kind of Ghana we want. Ghanaians want change and I strongly believe that the youth want change."

He added: "The bad state of Ghana’s economy is because of bad governance, evidenced by the implementation of bad policies over the last 7 years. It is bad leadership that has brought about the poverty, economic difficulties and hardships Ghanaians are going through. If the fundamentals of our economy were right, there would have been an abundance of jobs in Ghana. So there is hope for Ghana. Ghana’s youth have hope. If we can vote for change in November, I assure you that Ghana will be a nation that will be able to provide for the needs of her youth."
Nana Akufo-Addo, therefore, urged the youth to have confidence in him, trusting that when they give him the mantle to serve the people of Ghana, God-wiling from January 2017, "I am coming to do a job for Ghana. I am coming to use the resources of this nation, not to enrich myself, but for the benefit of all Ghanaians."
