Local Government and Rural Development Minister, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has dismissed claims by the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) that the ruling National Democratic Congress is begging for votes ahead of the December elections.

Mr. Ofosu Ampofo said the NDC is not begging for votes as the NPP did in 2008 because achievements by the NDC over the last three years speak for themselves, unlike the NPP who begged when they knew Ghanaians were definitely going to vote them out of power.

The NDC Parliamentary candidate for Tema West said this in reaction to a statement by Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe, a founding member of the NPP, that an appeal to renew the mandate of President Mills indicates that the NDC is begging Ghanaians to re-vote the NDC to power in 2012 elections.

Speaking on Adom FM on Monday, the Local Government and Rural Development Minister said asking Ghanaians to renew the mandate of President Mills is a direct result of the NDC government’s ability to deliver the ‘Better Ghana Agenda’ promised prior to the 2008 election.

He noted that every Ghanaian will attest to the fact that President Mills is on course in developing the nation and he therefore needs another four-year term to complete the projects he has initiated.

Mr. Ofosu Ampofo cited some ongoing projects like the expansion of rural electrification, construction of the Eastern corridor roads, construction of the University of Allied Sciences in Ho and stabilization of the cedi as evidence of the Mills administration’s competence.

Thus, he said, the President needs another four-year term to complete these projects, adding former Presidents Rawlings and Kufuor were given the same opportunity of two terms so Ghanaians should also extend the same favour to President Mills.
