Ghana's economy shrinking every year under Mahama - Nana Addo

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo made this known at a press conference in Kumasi in the Ashanti region, the stronghold of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

“Every year, in the last four years Mahama arrived, the economy of our country is shrinking every year,” he said, adding that the situation demands a change in government to reverse the trend.

“...So it imperative for us to vote for a change, especially you here in the Ashanti region, who appear to be the most populous region,” Nana Addo said in local dialect Twi.

With exactly a week to the elections, Nana Addo urged the electorate in the region to go out in their numbers and vote massively for the NPP.

“NPP needs your help. I’m pleading with you that you go to the polling station and vote early before going to your various farms and other workplaces,” he added.

Nana Addo promised them that if voted into power, he would work hard to strengthen the country’s health system, particularly, the National Health Insurance Scheme, as well as, provide jobs for the teeming unemployed in the country, among others.

He further called for an end to ethnocentric comments being peddled around ahead of the elections, adding that such comments will not augur well for the development of the country.
