The 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, will from Thursday, September 3, 2015, embark on a month long tour of the country to touch base with the party, ahead of the commencement of the campaign for the 2016 general elections.

The Volta Region will be Nana Akufo-Addo’s first point of call, followed by a tour of the Eastern Region and the three Northern Regions. Further details of the tour, including dates for visits to the other regions, will be released soon.
Nana Akufo-Addo will be accompanied on the tour by his running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia; Policy Advisor, Boakye Agyarko; former Minister of State, Elizabeth Ohene; National Organiser, John Boadu; National Women’s Organiser, Otiko Afisa Djaba; Political Assistant, Francis Asenso-Boakye; Press Secretary, Eugene Arhin; and Campaign Aides, Iddrisu Musah ‘Superior’ and Pius Hadzide.
