Vote for the man Ghanaians want - Ken Agyepong

Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency in the Central Region has tasked delegates of the New Patriotic Party to remain steadfast and vote for a candidate whom Ghanaians are desperately yearning for, to replace the incompetent NDC government.

Speaking to delegates of the Awutu Senya West Constituency on Wednesday, October 15, at a meeting between Nana Akufo-Addo and the 500 plus delegates from the constituency who will be voting on Saturday, Hon. Ken Agyepong told the delegates that Ghanaians will never forgive the NPP should any other candidate, but Nana Akufo-Addo, lead the NPP.

Admonishing delegates to be mindful of “last minute” monetary inducements being prepared by some of the aspirants in the forlorn hope of changing the minds of delegates from voting for Nana Akufo-Addo, Hon. Ken Agyepong was, however, confident that Nana Akufo-Addo will still emerge victorious.

“Before Saturday, some people will bring money to you in their bid to buy your conscience and your vote. Prior to the Tamale Delegates’ Conference, you will recollect the big promises some of the aspirants made. One of them told you that he would give pickup vehicles to each constituency if you voted for him by August this year. We are now in October and we haven’t seem a glimpse of the fulfilment of this promise,” Hon. Ken Agyepong noted.

He continued, “Today, as I speak we have been told by the national officers you voted for, that there is no money to conduct Saturday’s elections. So it is now up to us, as Members of Parliament, to find money for the elections. Those who claim to have money, when we went to Tamale, are nowhere to be found now. When we need money for the party, they disappear. But when it is needed to fight for positions in the party, money resurfaces in the party. So when you’re going to vote, you must listen out for whom Ghanaians are calling for. You have one vote, and so does any eligible voter in Ghana, and so you must always listen to Ghanaians.”


Hon. Ken Agyepong further reminded delegates to think of the future of their children and reject paltry sums of money intended as bribes for them on Saturday, a similar development, which he recalled, happened in the run up to the December 2012 elections and has resulted in Ghana facing untold hardships under President Mahama.

“Think of Ghana before casting your ballot for 2016. Give Nana Akufo-Addo one more chance. Today, we have members of the NDC coming to me saying they did not know this was the kind of governance they were bringing. If you bring Akufo-Addo, we will vote for NPP… Ghanaians are saying if you don’t bring Nana Akufo-Addo, they will not vote,” he said.

Hon. Ken Agyepong was, however, confident that delegates from the Central Region were going to vote massively for Nana Akufo-Addo, and in the final scheme of affairs, will emerge as the Region that gave Nana Akufo-Addo his highest vote share.
