Wife of the New Patriotic Party presidential candidate, Rebecca Naa Okaikor Akufo-Addo, says the challenging economic hardship being experienced in the country requires competent leadership to fix it.
At a campaign tour of the Ablekuma Central and Ayawaso North constituencies in the Greater Accra region, Mrs Akufo-Addo said the NPP has the competent men and women to turn around the fortunes of the country, hence urged Ghanaians to vote for the party on the December 7.
Accompanied by the parliamentary candidate of Ablekuma Central constituency, Ebenezer Nii Narh Nartey, Mrs Akufo-Addo campaigned for the her husband on the message of change and hope, noting Akufo-Addo is the best person to manage the country.
She told the people of Samenama Line in the area to disregard what she said is a propaganda making the rounds that an NPP-government would deport them from Ghana. “My husband has always fought for individual rights and freedoms and would never infringe on the human rights of anyone.
Again be assured that Nana Addo is committed to improving the lives of all Ghanaians, regardless of tribe, religion, gender or class, would be a father for all,” she told them.
At the Sukura and Zongo markets in the Ablekuma Central Constituency, Mrs Akufo-Addo spoke about the tough economic and business environment, and asked the traders to vote for her husband and the NPP to fix the economy. She promised Nana Addo will make the business environment better for businesses to thrive.
“You know that as women, we are the major beneficiaries of an improved NHIS, free maternal healthcare and free quality SHS, so on December 7, vote for these social interventions for you and your children; vote for Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP,” she added.
Mrs Akufo-Addo also met with some drivers at the Kaneshie-Dansoman and Takoradi stations, and encouraged them to vote for Nana Addo and the NPP, who she said would put in place policies that would bring down the cost of doing business for them.
At the Ayawaso North Constituency, Mrs Akufo-Addo who was accompanied by the NPP parliamentary candidate, Aminu M. Z, paid a courtesy call on the Moslem Council in Nima. She appealed to the community people to vote for Nana Addo who is making his third attempt at the presidency, adding the NPP’s promise of a Zongo Development Fund would be fulfilled when voted into power.
“My husband is a man of peace, someone you can trust. Don’t believe those who say the Zongo Development fund is a mere campaign talk. He means it, so give him the opportunity to prove to you. He is a man of his words,” she assured.
Mrs Akufo-Addo later visited the Mamobi market where she commissioned a structure she and the parliamentary candidate in the area constructed for the market women .
