"Try me too" - Nana Addo begs Ghanaians
According to Nana Addo, he has now decided to aggressively campaign in all settler communities across the country
According to him, he has now decided to aggressively campaign in all settler communities across the country, so as to dispel this false notion, with barely 8 months to holding of the November elections.
Addressing Moslem clerics and Chiefs of Settler communities in Derma, in the Tano South constituency, in the Brong Ahafo Region, on Sunday, February 21, 2016, Nana Akufo-Addo explained that the NPP, traditionally, has not done well electorally in settler communities across the country, largely because of the deliberate tagging of the NPP as an “anti-Northern” party by political opponents.
"This year, try me too. Give me the chance to show you what I can do. Four years is not so far away. If I come and I don’t succeed, kick me out. God knows my heart and I can assure you that I won’t disappoint you. Progress and prosperity are what I am offering the people of Ghana."
He continued, "In my attempts at the Presidency, I have stuck with my running mate, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who comes from Walewale and is also a Muslim. President Kufuor, before he won the 2000 election, and during the entire tenure of office chose a running mate from North, in the person of the late Alhaji Aliu Mahama, who hailed from Yendi. So if somebody says the NPP hates Northerners and Moslems, it can never be true. The records do not show that."

These are done purely for electoral advantage."
