Nana Akufo-Addo, the flagbearer of the the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ghana's main opposition party assured the locals that he would not discriminate against Voltarians.
"I'm not a thief..I will not disappoint you", Akufo-Addo to Voltarians
Still on his "Rise and Build" tour, Nana Akufo-Addo called on the people of the Volta Region to trust in his abilities and allow him a chance in the 2016 elections.
“I’ve come to ask the people of the Volta region to trust me and to have confidence in me. The change we seek to bring is a change that will cover all parts of the country without discrimination,” he promised at the end of his three-day tour of the region at Hohoe.
The Volta Region has since been a stronghold of the ruling NDC, but Nana Akufo-Addo seeks to change this come 2016 when Ghanaians go to the polls. He spoked to party faithfuls, addressing issues and promising that the region would benefit from a government under his ruling.“The Volta region is going to benefit strongly from an Akufo-Addo government…. I am saying to the people of the Volta Region that I am not going to disappoint you. The trust you put in me, I will not disappoint you.”
He further told party sympathizers that “if they help put me in office, they know the resources of the country are going to be dealt with honestly by the next President of Ghana in 2017.”
“I am not going to steal the money of the people of Ghana. I am not a thief. My whole career in public and private life tells you that I am not a thief. It is not at this stage of my life that I am going to steal the money of the people, when I haven’t done that before", Nana Akufo-Addo said, repeating again that he was not a thief to steal when voted into power.
He also showed confidence in his team, by reassuring that he was working with qualified people who would help propel the country out of its current state.“Everything in Ghana today is down. Everywhere you go across the country, and without exception, everybody is having a very difficult life. NHIS is down, our education system is down, and there is no confidence amongst the business community. Our agricultural sector is also declining. This is my concern,” Nana Akufo-Addo added.
