The Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has called on the rank and file of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to discount the opposition NPP Presidential candidate Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo since has no track records to show.
He made the statement when he addressed hundreds of NDC party supporter at the campaign launch of NDC’s Parliamentary candidate for Asuadei, Mr Cris Boadi in the Ahafo Ano South East Constituency of the Ashanti region on Saturday.
He said the NDC took over from the NPP because of its performance during former President Kufour’s reign. Adding that even with President Kufour’s track record that Nana Addo seeks to ride on; and is campaigning with, he is sacking all Kufour’s men. “So what record is he riding on?” he asked.
He called on the NDC members not to listen to the NPP but rather intensify their door to door campaign in the communities to ensure a resounding victory for President Mahama and the party in December.
He cautioned them to conduct themselves in peaceful atmospheres before and after the elections .And advised against complacency and work tirelessly until victory is achieved.
The Vice President Kwesi Amissah- Arthur further asked the NDC supporters to target the floating voters and explain to them that the NDC is a development oriented party.
He said as they can witness, the John Mahama government has done a lot for the region in terms of infrastructure development. He added that the president would continue to do more hence the need to give him another term together with Mr Cris Boadi, so that he can complement the effort of President Mahama in parliament.
He said continuity is key, if not, he explains others who don’t believe in it would stall development. Therefore, a vote for President Mahama and the NDC is a vote for development, he quipped.
The chief for the area praised government for the numerous development projects and the goodwill of the NDC in the area of massive infrastructure development that they have witnessed.
