The former General Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwadwo Osei Afriyie popularly called Sir John, is calling on employees in financial institutions and others in the corporate world who have busy schedules to defy working hours and step out to vote on December 7.
He observed that majority of banking staff do not vote because of their tight working hours which do not allow them time to abandon their desks to vote.
The former General Secretary of the party further entreated students to also defy academic rules by voting on the elections day.
Speaking with Kwame Adinkrah host of Abusua Nkommo on Abusua FM, Sir John urged them to exercise their franchise by choosing their leaders wisely devoid of complaints when their party loses the elections.
Mr Afriyie envisaged that the Lord will help them fight a good fight in the elections indicating that the party’s Flagbearer Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is not corrupt and that he will not fail Ghanaians when voted into power.
‘I am urging bankers to go out to vote during the elections and return to their banking halls, and those in the corporate world should make it a point to vote, join the NPP to vote for Nana Addo to receive the blessings of God. Nana’s number five position on the ballot paper is an indication that he will win one touch victory. Nana Addo will not steal tax payers’ monies when voted into power. Nana Addo will reduce taxes on goods and services,’ he promised.
He called on Ghanaians to vote out Mahama-led National Democratic Congress (NDC) government which is full of corrupt officials.
