The acting Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay, has indicated that there is clear evidence that the NPP will record its highest votes ever in the Volta Region in the December 7 parliamentary and presidential elections.

According to him, the hard work of parliamentary candidates, regional, constituency and branch executives was very impressive, adding that “Change is coming to the Volta Region.”

He said enthusiasm for change in the region is so evident that “we can smell it, feel it and see it. The enthusiasm, reception, participation and attendances to meetings are very impressive,” a development which was none-existent in the past.

He said it was no wonder that Nana Akufo-Addo’s tour of the region received unprecedented reception and audience – an occurrence which is causing fear and panic in the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Mr. Freddie Blay made the observation in Ho when he was briefing the media at the regional office of the NPP last Monday. He had been in the region for three days, touring and meeting key members of the party and stakeholders in the election process.

He also met about 15 volunteer groups of the NPP operating in the region to ensure that the ‘change’ message was well communicated to the citizens.

Chairman Blay (as he is affectionately called) was optimistic that the party in the region was effectively neutralising the propaganda of the governing NDC.

He said as a result of the hard work of all stakeholders of the party, “I can confidently say that the situation where we got zero and single votes in some polling stations will be a thing of the past.”

Mr Blay added that the party is fielding sharp and diligent polling station agents to ensure vigilance and accurate records of events at the polling stations. More so, the party is committed to ensuring adequate resource mobilisation to facilitate their operations in the region.

He further observed that although the NPP could not win all the seats in the region, he was optimistic that under the regional chairmanship of John Peter Amewu, the five parliamentary seats and 50% votes would be realised by the party in the December elections.

He also described as irresponsible comments and condemned alleged schemes by the governing NDC to get Togolese and other foreigners to vote in Ghana’s elections.
Referring to comments made by the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, to the effect that the party was going to campaign in the Republic of Togo, Mr Blay said, “Such acts are irresponsible.”

Mr. Blay was particularly excited that people in the region have become so increasingly discerning that the propaganda of the NDC was no more working.

Furthermore, he noted, “A party that claims to be founded on the tenets of probity and accountability is no more having its founder campaigning for it. The founder, Jerry John Rawlings, has continuously accused the government of corruption.”
