Former President John Agyekum Kufuor on Saturday said Ghanaians was looking forward to a quality leader like Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), to salvage the country from its current crisis.
He said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Government led by President John Evans Atta Mills was lacking leaders who could take bold decisions to safeguard the interest of the State and protect life and property.
Former President Kufuor was addressing NPP supporters at a rally, at Mantse Agbona, Accra, at which the party’s Greater Accra Region 2012 parliamentary aspirants were officially introduced.
He called on Ghanaians to register as voters and vote massively for the NPP, to change their lives and for better management of power to safe the country.
Former President Kufuor said: “the NDC keep on driving the citizens of this country backwards", and asked the electorate to change their leaders for better economic management.
He noted that the large crowd at the rally, showed that the NDC Government had lost popularity with the ordinary Ghanaian, and said “if tomorrow is to be an election day, NPP would win all the Greater Accra parliamentary seats.”
Former President Kufuor said the erstwhile NPP Government lifted the Ghanaian economy from a third to a middle income status, but “Now the NDC is taking credit for all what the NPP administration had done.”
The NPP General Secretary, Mr Kojo Owusu Afriye, called on supporters of the party to undertake a house-to-house and door-to-door campaign to educate the people on the need to vote the NPP to power.
He said: “If the NDC is giving two million years to rule Ghana, there is no way they can achieved what former President Kufuor Government’s has achieved in its eight years period.”
Mr Maxwell Kofi Jumah, NPP Member of Parliament for Asokwa, said those who voted for the NDC in 2008, were yearning for the first term of President Mills to end and claimed that “All those who voted for the NDC are now on their knees praying for the Election Day to come.”
Mr Lord Comey, former National Organizer of the NPP, appealed to Ghanaians to register in the upcoming biometric voters’ registration to enable them to vote massively for the NPP for change and to move Ghana forward.
