Thousands of Odumase Krobo residents in the Eastern Region on Tuesday poured onto the streets to welcome the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

It took the NPP campaign team close to an hour to get to the venue of the campaign as human and vehicular traffic, described as unprecedented in the political history of Odumase Krobo, impeded their movement.

Amidst chants of “Nana oo Nana,” “Wama chake mi” (“We will effect a change”), “We need change,” among others, market women abandoned their wares, business owners came out of their shops, whilst commercial drivers parked their vehicles to catch a glimpse of the NPP flag bearer

As the shouts reverberated across the Odumase Krobo township, thousands of onlookers rushed towards the principal streets to hail the arrival of the NPP presidential candidate and his team.

Visibly excited and overwhelmed by the massive support for his candidature, Nana Akufo-Addo told the residents he was confident that Krobos had joined in the “chorus for change.”

Nana Addo reiterated the implementation of the one district, one factory and one village one dam policies, the diversification of the country’s agriculture, the revival of the National Health Insurance Scheme, effective implementation of Free SHS, setting up of an Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP), restoration of teacher and nursing training allowances, amongst others, when the NPP is voted into power.

The NPP flag bearer further assured residents of Krobo that he was committed to fulfilling each and every one of the promises, when, God-willing, he wins this year’s election.

“I am not going to tell the Ghanaian people that I am going to do something when I know I cannot do it. I will never, ever lie to the people of Ghana. I will never do that. I have too much respect and love for Ghanaians to do that to them. We will build mango and cement factories for the teeming youth of Krobo to get jobs to do,” he stressed.

At Adukrom too, thousands of residents besieged the principal streets to welcome the NPP leader when he visited the area to exchange pleasantries with Nana Opese Konadu II, the acting Nifahene of Akropong and his elders.

Nana Opese Konadu II appealed to Nana Addo to make the area a district and build a senior high school for them to develop the constituency if Ghanaians give him the mandate.

Addressing the large crowd at the Okere Constituency, Nana Addo underscored, “I was coming to make an appeal to the people of Okere to join this chorus of ‘change,’ but I can see from this massive crowd that you have joined this chorus for change already.”

The change the NPP is assuring Ghanaians, he indicated, will mean that “the years of stagnation and recession under John Dramani Mahama will be coming to an end, for the years of progress and prosperity under Nana Akufo-Addo to begin.”
