…Rebecca Akufo-Addo Pleads
Rebecca Akufo-Addo – wife of the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) – has joined her husband; Nana Akufo-Addo, to plead with Ghanaians to give him the opportunity to steer the affairs of the country come November 2016.
According to her, Nana Akufo-Addo, is an honest, incorruptible and hardworking person, who has the interest of the country at heart, and when given the opportunity, can turn the fortunes of Ghana around.
“At this critical stage in our country where people are fast losing hope in politicians to address the current economic crisis and deal with corruption, Ghana needs a leader who is honest, decisive, incorruptible, and competent, to improve the lives of the citizenry,” Mrs. Akufo-Addo, who is sometimes addressed by some NPP elements as “First Lady In-Waiting,” said.
Nana Addo himself, has been screaming “Try Me Too! Try Me Too! Try Me too!” while touring some parts of the country.
She had joined the NPP Parliamentary candidate for Ayawaso North Constituency in the Greater Accra region, Amidu Mohammed Zakari, and other Constituency executives to commission a bridge at Brukutu Lane, a suburb of Newton Kwatstru.
“Nana Akufo Addo, is running for the third time. Help him to change Ghana for the better by voting for him massively in the coming elections. He is my husband, and I know what he can do,” she said.
The bridge, will help the locals to cross to the other side, to engage in economic and social activities.
Following the failure of local government authorities to respond to appeals to renovate the bridge, the parliamentary candidate for the Ayawaso North Constituency, stepped in and with assistance from Mrs. Akufo-Addo, had it renovated.
Mrs. Akufo-Addo, used the occasion to urge parents to advise their children to be wary of corrupt politicians, who would seek to entice them with monies, in order to recruit them to engage in violence, in the upcoming elections.
She said, the current economic hardship, which has led to high unemployment and school dropout rates, has made a large section of the youth vulnerable to the entrapments of some mischievous politicians, who would like to recruit them to engage in violence in the November 7 general elections.
On his part, the NPP parliamentary candidate for Ayawaso North, Amidu Zakari, called on the Electoral Commissioner, Charlotte Osei, to bring some confidence in the works of the commission by implementing the recommendations of its panel to audit the voters’ register through validation, which requires all registered voters, who are interested in voting on November 7, 2016.
