Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has directed the rank and file of the NDC to target floating voters during the party's campaign and not concentrate so much on members and supporters. This is because, according to the second gentleman of the land, they play a vital role in the outcomes of the country's elections.
He said this when he addressed a mini rally at New Abirem in
the Eastern Region, where he introduced the NDC's Parliamentary candidate for the area, Mavis Ama Frimpong Gati, who is also the Eastern Regional Minister.
Hundreds of NDC supporters defied the incessant rainfall and came out to
listen to their leaders. Mr. Amissah-Arthur charged the supporters to come
out massively on December 7 and vote for President Mahama and Mavis Ama
Frimpong-Gati. A National Vice Chairman and Director of Elections of the
NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo also told the supporters that under the next Mahama
administration. Government will outline programmes to boost Kola
cultivation and production.
Also, he disclosed, government will set up farmer’s services centres across the country to support farmers with inputs and soft loans.These, he said, have all been captured in the 2016 NDC's manifesto.
Mrs. Frimpong-Gati said the Eastern region has so far received its share ofdevelopment under President Mahama. She said when the chiefs and people of New Abirem vote for her to become their MP, she will together with President Mahama provide them with more development.
