The presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, has called on Ghanaians to support his quest to become president of the country by voting massively for him.
Addressing supporters of the NPP Thursday during his tour of the Greater Accra region, he said that he can only get to the Flagstaff House with the help of Ghanaians. This is the third time he is trying to be president of the republic.
“This 2016, I need your help to push me to the presidency,” he entreated.
He said due to the “great love, respect and humility” he has for Ghanaians he will not stand before them to make promises that he cannot fulfill.
He assured Ghanaians that all the policies outlined in the party’s 2016 manifesto are achievable and will be pursued if he becomes president in the next polls.
Meanwhile, the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, has described the manifesto of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as empty warning that the policies and plans contained in it will destroy the country.
Speaking Wednesday at a rally at Afienya in the Ningo Prampram constituency in the Greater Accra region, President Mahama said “When the NPP read their manifesto, it was obvious that their economic plan would destroy this economy.
“If you take the NPP’s economic plan, they are reducing taxes on everything; removing taxes on raw materials, reducing VAT on several items, reducing corporate income tax so when you do that you are reducing your revenue.
“If you look at that economic plan they showed Ghanaians, it is unworkable, it will ruin this economy, it will take inflation back up, it will raise interest rates and it will put us back where it just came from and so it’s the craziest economic plan I have ever heard.”
