This was contained in a statement signed by PPP’s campaign coordinator Richmond Duke Keelson.

The statement also dared President Mahama and the NDC to use the same slogan during his campaign ahead of the December polls.

“The Progressive People's Party's Presidential Presidential Candidate Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom has reintroduced the "Yeresesamu" slogan and is daring President John Dramani Mahama and the NDC to follow”

In 2008, when Dr Nduom was the flagbearer for the Convention People’s Party (CPP) he used the same “yeresesamu” slogan, which was also used by the then flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress Prof Evans Atta-Mills.

Dr Nduom at that time accused the NDC of “stealing” the slogan that helped them win the election from him. The statement, therefore, calls on the NDC to use the slogan again.

The statement also said the Presidential campaign of the party has started.

“The campaign was officially kicked off at the PPP National Convention held on July 16th during which Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom was confirmed as the party's Presidential Candidate.  The campaign has already been to the Volta, Western, Greater Accra and Central Regions to introduce parliamentary candidates to the people.”

In the next phase of the campaign, Dr Nduom is expected to visit and campaign in five more regions.

“Dr. Nduom will lead national, regional and constituency executives to the Eastern, Ashanti, Northern regions and back to the Volta and Greater Accra regions between now and August 16th.  Once again, the focus will be to showcase the party's parliamentary candidates.”

The statement also indicated that the party will launch its campaign team to help with the agenda of the PPP.
