Shama (W/R), Sept. 30, GNA - Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, flagbearer of the Convention People's Party (CPP), has asked the electorate to have faith in the strength and ability of the party and its leadership to deliver to make the country a happy place for all again. He said the achievements of the CPP government of the first republic in the areas of education, health, and industry and employment generation had never been equalled by successive regimes since the government was overthrown in 1966.

Dr. Nduom was addressing a rally as part of his campaign tour of some constituencies in the Western Region which started on Friday. He said CPP understands the challenges of the various regions than any of the rest of the political parties and have the strategy to address these challenges within a record time. Dr. Nduom said the country has all the resources that if well managed would lift the people from abject poverty.

He advised supporters and sympathisers of the party to remain united an avoid utterances and acts that could result in violence and base their campaign messages on issues, saying, "Violence does not win elections". At a similar forum at the Kwesimintsim lorry park in Takoradi, Dr. Ndoum told the people that CPP deserved to be given another opportunity to prove its leadership qualities. He appealed to the electorate to give their mandate to the party by voting massively for him and the party's parliamentary candidates. A government of the CPP, Dr Nduom said, would not disappoint Ghanaians like the National Democratic Congress and the New Patriotic Party have done.

Mr. Mike Eghan, National Treasurer of the party, said CPP has the strategy to turn around the fortunes of the nation. Similar forums organised at Tarkwa and Agona-Nkwanta were addressed by Dr. Ndoum during which he urged party activists, supporters and sympathisers to intensify their campaigns and also embark on membership drive to brighten the chances of the party in the upcoming elections. 30 Sept 08
