Vice President Amissah-Arthur woos Oguaa voters

Vice President Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur, at the weekend asked supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to come out in their numbers and vote massively to retain the party in power in December 2012.

He said the victory of the party was assured and there was no need staying at home on an election day without voting to ensure the victory of the party.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur was addressing a rally at Cape Coast to introduce himself to the electorate after being outdoored last Thursday by President John Mahama.

The rally was held at London Bridge Vicinity in Cape Coast where teeming supporters of the NDC clad in party colours, red, green, white and black thronged.

Accompanied by his wife Matilda, Vice President had earlier on called on the Oguamanhen, Osabarima Kwesi Atta II, who gave his blessing and that of his elders to the Veep.


At sixty one, an economist and the immediate past Governor of the Bank of Ghana, he is partnering President Mahama to claim victory and retain the NDC in power for a second term.

He asked the supporters who had wanted to go independent after the primaries to remain within the party to ensure victory.

Vice President said all differences must be put aside and unity forged so that the party wins the election, assuring the electorate that their grievances would be addressed.

Mr Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, a Deputy Minister of Local Government and Rural Development and Coordinator of John Mahama Campaign, asked NDC supporters to get involved in the campaign no matter where they were, adding “anybody is a campaign manager”
