Vice President Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur on Friday reminded Ghanaians that government can continue with its numerous development projects only if the people renewed their mandate and asked the electorate to retain the ruling National Democratic Congress in power in the December polls.

“We can’t implement our policies if we don’t get your vote,” the vice president said at Sekondi when he met the chiefs and elders of Sekondi at the Chief's palace.

His meeting forms part of a three-day visit to the western region where he has been interacting with the electorate and introducing himself as the running mate of President John Dramani Mahama on the ticket of the ruling NDC.

Vice president Amissah-Arthur stressed peace, unity and stability as prerequisites to rapid social and economic development and added “it is our hope that chiefs will support us to have peaceful elections.”

He appealed for help, prayers and advice, and asked the chiefs to continue to pray for him. The vice president said the NDC government would hold consultations with the chiefs of the central and western regions on business development with the view to attracting more investors to the area.

Nana Tsetse Appou II, acting president of Sekondi Traditional Council and chief of Kansaworado, appealed to the government for the rehabilitation of their railway line in Sekondi, improvement of structures at the Albert Bosumtswi Sam fishing harbour, as well as the road network in the area.

Earlier the vice president had interacted with workers at the harbour and assured them that government would not neglect the development of the fishing industry. He said he hailed from the fishing community of Moree in the central region and personally fishing was dear to his heart.

Government was therefore in talks with the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority to look for ways to develop more cold stores across the country’s ports and beaches so that the hard work of Ghana’s fishermen for bumper catches would not be in vain.

At the port, the people requested the government to provide more cold stores to reduce fish spoilage, and sheds for shelter. The vice president would soon hold a meeting and interact with the Western Regional House of Chiefs.
