Mrs Rebecca Naa Okaikor Akufo-Addo has said the current difficulties faced by Ghanaians require competent men and women of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) led by her husband, Nana Akufo-Addo, to fix them.
She said this during her campaign in Ablekuma Central and Ayawaso North constituencies of the Greater Accra Region.
Accompanied by the parliamentary candidate of Ablekuma Central, Ebenezer Nii Narh Nartey, Mrs Akufo-Addo called on the Chief of Samara Line and people of the predominantly Muslim community to disregard the propaganda that an NPP government would deport them from Ghana, adding: “My husband has always fought for individual rights and freedoms and would never infringe on the human rights of anyone. Again, be assured that Nana Akufo-Addo, who is committed to improving the lives of all Ghanaians, regardless of tribe, religion, gender or class, would be a father for all.”
At the Sukura and Zongo markets in Ablekuma Central, Mrs Akufo-Addo, told market women to vote for Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP to fix the economy and make the business environment better for their businesses to thrive.
“You know that as women we are the major beneficiaries of an improved National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), free maternal healthcare, and free quality Senior High School education, so on December 7, vote for these social interventions for you and your children; vote for Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP,” she stated.
Mrs Akufo-Addo also met drivers at the Dansoman and Takoradi stations at Kaneshie, and asked them to vote for her husband to put in place measures that would drive down the cost of doing business for them.
At the Ayawaso North constituency, Mrs Akufo-Addo called on the Muslim Council in Nima. She appealed to the community to vote for Nana Akufo-Addo on his third try, adding that the promise of a Zongo Development Fund would be fulfilled.
“My husband is a man of peace, someone you can trust. Don’t believe those who say the Zongo Development Fund is mere campaign talk. He means it, so give him the opportunity to prove to you, he is a man of his words,” she assured.
