The Vice President, Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, says the National Democratic Congress (NDC), will chase the New Patriotic Party, which is represented by an elephant, into the Mole National Park “where it belongs”.
Addressing party supporters on his arrival in the Upper East Region, Mr Amissah-Arthur, said “We have come to send that elephant back to where it belongs. We will send that elephant into the Mole game park”. He, however, admitted that it will require a lot of work from the people to be able to do that for the John Mahama-led NDC to win the country’s upcoming December 7 general elections. “There is work to be done. We have a lot of work to do. We have to convince the people of Bolga and the people of the Upper East Region that President John Mahama is the best choice for Ghana,” he told a cheering crowd Thursday.
The Vice president who described himself to the people as ‘John the Baptist’ bearing the good news of President John Mahama, said he was convinced that the NDC will win this year’s elections. “For me I’m convinced that John Mahama is the best so I have come as the John the Baptist to bring the news about John Mahama who is coming. As for Upper East, I think we’ve won already. Each one of us must be a disciple of John Dramani Mahama in the villages, the towns and the communities in the Upper East Region,” he charged the party supporters Mr Amissah-Arthur said his optimism of an NDC victory is derived from the fact that the Mahama government has brought electricity to the people, built a lot of schools and roads nothing a lot more will be provided. “Some people don’t have roads but they will also get.
That is the job President Mahama is doing and that he will continue to do from now into the future,” he told the supporters He added that President Mahama’s youthful energy and experience makes him the best choice for the country.
