Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has cautioned the National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters against getting complacent with pre-election polls that put President Mahama ahead.

He said rather than being content the supporters must to go out in their numbers and campaign in their communities to ensure total victory for the NDC.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur gave the caution when he addressed hundreds of NDC supporters at the Takoradi Market Circle in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur was at the rally to canvas for votes for President John Mahama as well as Mr Alfred Ekow Djan, the Deputy Western Regional Minister, who doubles as the NDC’s parliamentary candidate for Takoradi.

The Takoradi parliamentary seat has been held by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) since 1996 and the campaign there is to shore-up support for the NDC’s candidate to win the seat this time round.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur urged Ghanaians to continue to maintain the peace that the country is enjoying.

He said the December 7elections was not about violence but an opportunity for people to make their choices as to who they wanted to govern the nation.

He urged the electorate in the area to renew the mandate of President John Mahama for another four years to enable him to continue with his transformation agenda.

Mrs Matilda Amissah-Arthur, wife of the Vice President, said since the overthrow of Dr Kwame Nkrumah the only government that had brought lots of development to the Western Region was the NDC.

She said though the people of Takoradi had been voting for the NPP over the years there had not been much development in their communities.

She, therefore, called on the electorate to vote for the NDC to ensure more development for the area.

Mr Sam Pee Yalley, Ghana’s Ambassador to India, said President Mahama’s government had started reviving some of the defunct state companies such as the Komenda Sugar Factory to provide jobs for the youth.

He said recently President Mahama inaugurated the first phase of the Western Railway Rehabilitation Project which, he said, was meant to activate the sector that used to provide lots of employment for the people of Takoradi.

He announced that the Government intended to revive the Ghana Black Star Line to provide jobs for the people of Takoradi and its environs especially those working in the maritime sector.
