The Minister of Petroleum and the Western Region Campaign Coordinator of the NDC, Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, has mounted a rigorous campaign to mobilise votes in the Western Region for President John Mahama.
“The President is a true Nkrumaist and he is destined to lead the Western Region to the heights envisaged by Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah. Everywhere we go in this region, we see clear efforts by President Mahama to touch the lives of the hardworking people of the region,” he said.
The theme for the event was: “Celebration of the progress of Ellembelle Development Continues.”
“I am telling you my people that President Mahama became President in order to see to the accomplishment of the uncompleted business of Osagyefo Nkrumah. You all know that the Western Region abounds in rich natural resources whose utilisation immensely supports our national development agenda.
“In recognition of this, President Mahama continues to work hard to provide the region with its share of infrastructure and social interventions which are touching and transforming the lives of our people,” he told the cheering NDC supporters and sympathisers
“Today marks the beginning of a process to cement the massive victory of President Mahama in the December 7 election. Anytime the Western Region votes for the NDC, we win the national election. We will continue to work hard to make the Western and Central regions the big support base of the NDC in the 2016 election and into the future,” Mr Buah said.
The Western Regional Campaign Task Force was inaugurated by the Vice-President, Mr Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur.
Mr Buah also assured his constituents of a food bank if retained as MP in December 7, 2016.
He said such a facility would go a long way to help the less privileged in times of need.
Mr Buah made reference to his promise prior to his re-election in 2012 to build a facility to cater for the aged which he fulfilled when he established the AYA Community Centre (Elderly Care and Recreational Centre).
He said the food bank would be supported by churches, organisations, corporate bodies and individuals.
