Madam Brigitte Dzogbenuku, the Vice Presidential Candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), has assured the electorate that the party would involve the best brains in managing the country’s resources.
She said this would occur when the party wins the December 7 polls.
She said the PPP Government would not discriminate against any region or group of persons in terms of the distribution of the national resources, but would ensure that every region gets its fair share of developmental projects.
Madam Dzogbenuku, who is a former Miss Ghana, said this when she visited the Sekondi constituency, over the weekend, to rally support for the party’s presidential candidate, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom.
She said the PPP is the only party in the country that has nominated a woman as a running mate in this year’s elections saying this shows the trust and confidence the party has in women.
Madam Dzogbenuku urged women to support Dr Nduom as he believes in women empowerment, and would work to liberate all Ghanaians from economic hardships, youth unemployment, the unending power crisis and many other socio-economic challenges in the country.
The Vice Presidential Candidate explained the colours of the party comprising white which means purity therefore, it would avoid any form of corruption and misappropriation of the country’s resources while the red sun signifies hope and urgency to develop the nation.
She said the ruling National Democratic Congress and the New Patriotic Party had governed the country at separate occasions, but had failed to fulfill the aspirations of Ghanaians adding that it is time to change them and try a new party.
She said Dr Nduom, who is an economist, had proven track record, evidenced in the many companies that he had established across the country and this has led to the employment of over 21,000 Ghanaians saying “he is more than capable to steer the country to economic prosperity”.
Mr Daniel Essuman, the Parliamentary Candidate of the PPP in the Sekondi Constituency, assured the electorates that the party would provide quality educational infrastructure in order to enhance teaching and learning for all children-of-school-going age.
He said if the party is given the nod in the December 7 polls, it would actualize the compulsory free basic education policy, unlike the failed promises of the ruling National Democratic Congress Administration.
He said women traders would be supported to set up their own businesses to enhance their standards of living.
The Vice Presidential Candidate of the Party, Madam Dzogbenuku, enjoyed a massive support in the various constituencies she visited during the three-day tour of the Region.
She visited Wassa East, Mpohor, Kwesimintsim, Takoradi, Sekondi and some constituencies in the northern parts of the Western Region.
