NDC DOES NOT DESERVE A SECOND TERM … Says Kwabena Agyapong
From Issah Alhassan, Kumasi
THE FORMER Presidential spokesperson and a leading member of Nana Akufo Addo’s campaign team, Mr. Kwabena Agyei Agyapong, has stated that the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) does not deserve a second term in office.
The former presidential spokesperson says the NDC has failed miserably to justify the confidence reposed in them by the electorate in 2008 and must, therefore, be shown the exit.
According to Mr. Agyapong the ruling party failed to take advantage of the numerous economic opportunities that came their way upon assumption of power and does not merit another term.
He said having had the opportunity to experience four years of the NDC administration, Ghanaians were in the best position to make an informed judgement as whether to continue to live in misery and dejection, or choose the path of economic and social development for their lives.
“It is now the choice of Ghanaians to choose whether they want a free SHS or want to continue to pay exorbitant fees of their children in school,” he noted.
Addressing a crowd of supporters at separate rallies in the Kumawu constituency, the former presidential spokesperson said looking at the current depressed state of the economy and its repercussions on the citizens, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration must not be allowed to stay another term.
He has, therefore, urged voters in Ashanti region to give the New Patriotic Party (NPP) a hundred percent vote in order to ensure a resounding victory, come December 7.
“December 7 should be a one touch victory for Nana Addo and voters in the region would play a crucial role to ensure that, and so the NPP needs 100% votes from you,” he charged.
He said notwithstanding the fact that the defeat of the ruling NDC was apparent, considering their poor performance as a government, there was no need for the supporters of the NPP to be complacent and think that victory will automatically come without working towards it.
Mr. Agyapong also pointed out that for Nana Addo to push his agenda of free senior high school education through, he would need the support of parliamentarians and therefore emphasized the need for voters to avoid the phenomenon of skirt and blouse
“You should know that where the elephant stands, that is where the young ones also stand, and so when you vote for Nana Addo, make sure you vote for the party’s parliamentary candidates,” he advised.
Mr. Agyapong, therefore, cautioned supporters of the party to be wary of the NDC’s vile propaganda machinery which he said was in full swing to dissuade the minds of voters on the good policies and programmes of the NPP.
“You should by now know the hypocrisy of the NDC, they were major beneficiaries of free education in the past but now they are opposing it, that is the NDC for you!” he stressed.
