Vice president Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has appealed to Ghanaians to renew the mandate of his boss John Mahama for another four more years in order to continue with the “systematic development of Ghana”.
Addressing a gathering of chiefs of the Gonja Traditional Council in Damongo on Tuesday, Mr Amissah-Arthur observed that peace and stability form the foundation for economic and social development and the Mahama government has succeeded in sustaining that feat.
He said Mahama needs continuity in his agenda of changing lives and transforming Ghana because the country has seen massive infrastructure developmental projects under his tenure.
He said Mahama cannot develop the whole country at a go but assured Ghanaians that government can provide every community with its fair share of development. According to him, Ghanaians must continue to have confidence and hope in Mahama because his policies are geared towards transforming their lives.
Amissah-Arthur called on all to join the clarion call for peace before, during and after the December 7 elections.
Touching on chieftaincy disputes in the country, Mr Amissah-Arthur said succession to stools and skins had become a source of conflict in some parts of the country, and commended the people of Gonja for employing the best and most peaceful practices when it comes to such practices.
“You have set good examples that are worthy of emulation,” he said.
He takes his campaign to the Upper East region Wednesday.
