Cape Coast, Oct. 3, GNA - The wife of the Convention Peoples' Party (CPP's) presidential aspirant, Mrs Yvonne Nduom, on Friday said the CPP is nationalistic, is devoid of ethnic and tribal connotations and would ensure that the interest and welfare of the people were paramount if given the mandate.
Mrs Nduom said this when she interacted with women at the Kotokuraba and Abura markets and also met regional executives of hairdressers and beauticians association at "Master Sam" all suburbs of Cape Coast as part of her three-day tour of the region. She said the CPP was dormant for some time but it has been revived and its message was making great impact in the country. "When given the nod it will seek the interest of women by establishing a micro-finance scheme to offer them financial support to boost their businesses as part of its measures to financially empower them."
She said her husband was poised to transform the fortunes of the country for the better and that the local textile industry among others would be given a boost to generate more income for the individual and country at large.
Mrs Nduom told the women not to be deceived into believing that their votes would be wasted if cast for the CPP. "Ghanaians have got the message of the party "yeresesamu" well, judged by the response from people. It will surely win the December election as most people are calling for a change," she said. 03 Oct 08
