U/East NPP launches ‘agenda 50/50 votes for Nana Addo

The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) youth wing in the Upper East Region, has launched what it calls ‘operation 50 percent votes’ for the party’s Presidential Candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in the November polls.

The party says it is also strategising to win more parliamentary seats in the region.

The Agenda 50/50 is aimed at mobilizing resources and personnel to win 50 percent of total votes in the region for Nana Addo in the 2016 general election.

Speaking at the launch of the programme in Bolgatanga, the Upper East Regional Youth Organizer of the NPP, Ibrahim Bashiru, chastised President John Mahama for the ailing economy, and the high unemployment rate, adding that “it is for this reason that we have vowed to join the bandwagon of unwavering clamor for a regime change in 2016 by working assiduously to ensure that Nana Akufo Addo gets at least 50 percent of the votes from this region in the 2016 polls to make him the next President of Ghana.”


“We want to remind the President that we are now more than ever, very discerning and wouldn’t allow ourselves to be deceived any longer by the NDC for our votes, and later abandon us as usual. Change is coming and change shall indeed come by the end of this year Insha Allah,” Bashiru added.

Mr. Bashiru noted that, it was regrettable that the NDC government which has not been able to introduce or successfully implement any social intervention programme, has rather succeeded in collapsing the existing interventions it inherited from the NPP.

“They have again failed to revamp the Pwalugu tomatoe factory, the Zuarungu meat factory, the Bolgatanga rice mill and the Bolga-Bawku road has not been worked on as promised several times. The Garu Polyclinic which was stated in the president’s 2016 state of the nation address has not even commenced and of course the entire region is still waiting the construction of the new Upper East Regional hospital promised by the president.”

He appealed to all Ghanaians to give their unflinching support to Nana Addo by voting him into office as president in 2016, to restore hope and to salvage the suffering of Ghanaians.
