The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Regional Chairman of the Brong Ahafo, Mr. Kwadwo Fodjour, has called for a hoot at the NPP if there is a failure in its governance.
"Ghanaians should rejoice over the fact that the NPP has been delegated by God to lead the country".
Speaking at a press confab held at Sunyani last week, he said the promises of the NPP government are not mere political gimmicks.
"The government is working hard around the clock to implement all the promises made during the campaign", he said. Restrain, he said is the most important thing the government expects from the Ghanaians.
He advised that some of the statements of the NDC are untrue, adding that people should be very careful about the promises and the statements of the NDC.
On his part, the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Hon. Ernest K. Debrah, said the issue of party politics should at the moment be consigned into a dustbin, but added that attention should rather be focused on development.
