Voltarians lack reason to vote for NDC - Pius Hadzide
A Presidential Campaign Aide to the Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Mr Pius Enam Hadzide has asked voltarians to vote against John Mahama and the NDC in the upcoming general election as they have not only been incompetent in the management of the affairs of state.
Also because, their "brother", former President Jerry John Rawlings, who happened to be the main reason why voltarians voted for the NDC, had been relegated by the John Mahama led NDC.
"In the past my people used to vote for the NDC because of our brother JJ, today that reason does not exist anymore. Jerry has been relegated and ostracized out of the NDC, to John Mahama and Asiedu Nketiah, our JJ is now either a "bull dog" that has to be shut up or is too old, that is our brother they are talking about", Mr Hadzide said in apparent reference to comments reportedly made by the General Secretary of the NDC.
Mr Hadzide was addressing a rally at Sorkorban village, a predominantly ewe dominated community in the Nhyiaso constituency of the Ashanti region as part of a four day tour of the Ashanti region by the Flagbearer of the NPP Nana Akufo-Addo. Nana Akufo- Addo was been hugely welcomed by thousands of enthusiastic supporters everywhere he went in the region.
Mr Hadzide urged all Voltarians to shun NDC propaganda that the NPP was an anti Volta party and choose between honesty and corruption, incompetence and competence, stressing that Nana Akufo-Addo was honest and competent.
"let's vote for competent managers of the economy, let's vote for honest leadership, let's vote for the jobs candidate. Why did the NDC abandon the wood village project started by the erstwhile NPP?" he queried.
"The time for change is now and we from the Volta region must also seize the opportunity and be part of the history that will soon be made" he added.
