Don't vote on tribal lines – Mrs. Nduom

Mrs Yvonne Nduom, wife of the flag bearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Kwesi Nduom, has urged Ghanaians to eschew voting based on tribal and partisan lines and start voting based on issues and policies proposed by candidates.

That, she says, will lead to the election of the right persons to lead the nation.

Speaking on Class 91.3FM’s Executive Breakfast Show (EBS) on Tuesday, 8 November, Mrs Nduom stressed that Dr Nduom’s policy of job and wealth creation makes him the best candidate to be voted for in the December polls.

“There are so many people unemployed, so, when my husband talks about job creation and wealth creation, it’s a message that resonates with people because people are looking for jobs. By the size of the applications that we get every day, you know that it’s real and, so, when he stands on the platform and talks about creating jobs, people really get it but we don’t have any way of measuring that when they get into the voting booth, they will remember that they are voting to get jobs and improved their lives, that we can’t tell,” she stated.

“…I think Ghanaians should be wide awake and I think Ghanaians should listen to issues. Voting should not be on sentiments alone and voting should also be more on the issues and the messages that the presidential candidates are talking about and not on tribal lines. We really have to try as much as possible to put Ghana first and make Ghana number one. …Now it’s like we are deviating, we are not really concentrating on what Ghanaians need, as such we are just going on sentiments like ‘this is my party, that is your party and that is all that I know’. We should stop that, we should put Ghana first, and vote on issues and if we did that, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom will be president,” Mrs Nduom said.
