Ex-President John Agyekum Kuffuor on Tuesday called on the people of the Central Region to vote massively for Nana Akuffo-Addo in the December polls to enable him to continue with the projects the party started in his administration.
He said the Free Senior High Education programme was possible and that in his administration the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) was successfully executed and urged all to give the party the needed support.
Ex-President Kuffour who said this at a rally held in Cape Coast to introduce the Parliamentary Candidates for Cape Coast North and Cape Coast South constituencies, underscored the importance of good governance and stressed that it was only Nana Akuffo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) that could make it work.
He pointed out that quality education was not only about building of school blocks, but also involved the motivation of teachers to make them give out their best to the children no matter their number in class.
Ex-President Kuffour was happy with the turn out and urged them to remain committed to the party by voting for the Presidential and Parliamentary candidates who would come to implement good governance and better education policies.
Mr. Kenndy Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin-North advised the people of Cape Coast not to accept gifts like cloth and money from any member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) since that was the strategy being used to convince people to vote for the party.
He also urged them to vote the NDC party out of power claiming that the party was corrupt and was using government money for their own interest as well as paying judgment debts. “Since the NDC party came into power it has done nothing for which it would be remembered”, he said.
Mr. Agyapong who is also the owner of ‘Net2’ Television said the Free SHS education policy was feasible and that some members of the NDC enjoyed the free education system during their time and urged them to vote for Nana Akuffo-Addo to provide them with better things that would change their present condition.
The MP also advised the people of Cape Coast to be vigilant during the December polls alleging that the NDC was training some macho men who would be used during the election and asked that they should not allow anyone to cheat the NPP in the forthcoming polls.
At the launch, Dr Mrs Henrietta Abane a lecturer at the University of Cape Coast (UCC) and Mr. Alfred Thompson, a banker, were introduced as Parliamentary aspirants for Cape Coast North and Cape Coast South constituencies respectively.
