THE New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Aspirant for Sunyani East, Mr Kwasi Ameyaw Cheremeh, has launched his campaign for the December 7 general election, with a call on supporters of the party to intensify their campaign in their various communities to win more eligible voters into their fold.
He urged the party supporters not to shun those who did not share their views, but rather engage them constantly in conversations with respect and love so as to get them on their side to enable the party to win the forthcoming election with a landslide victory.
Addressing a rally at Abesim, on the outskirts of Sunyani, to officially launch the NPP Sunyani East Constituency campaign for the 2008 general election, Mr Cheremeh called on the people not to give in to the vile propaganda and lies being peddled against the NPP government by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), since it had nothing to offer Ghanaians, judging from the eight years track record of the government.
He said it was the NPP government that had lined up comprehensive and credible plans and programmes in its manifesto to move the country forward as well as bring a remarkable improvement in the living conditions of all Ghanaians.
Mr Cheremeh, therefore, urged the people to vote massively for the Presidential aspirant of the party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to make good all his promises, especially the free education at the senior high school level, the institution of a pension scheme for farmers and the establishment of a university for the Brong Ahafo Region.
The Sunyani East NPP parliamentary aspirant also called on all registered voters to go out and cross-check whether their names were on the voters register during the exhibition period, since that was the only way they could cast their votes in the forthcoming election and retain the NPP in power to continue with its good works.SUNYANI
Mr Cheremeh said it was during the era of the NPP government that cocoa farmers in the country reaped benefits of the cocoa industry, saying a bag of cocoa was now sold for GH¢132, and pledged that education, health, agriculture would be his focus when given the mandate by the people to represent them in Parliament and also used his advocacy skills as a lawyer to lobby for more development projects for the area.
For their part, the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Mr Ignatius Baffour Awuah, who is also the NPP parliamentary aspirant for Sunyani West, and Mr Kwasi Adu Gyan, the NPP Brong Ahafo Regional Chairman, urged the electorate to vote massively for the NPP and reject the NDC at the polls, since it had nothing to offer the country, but would only spike the wheels of progress of the nation.
They also reiterated the call on party supporters to intensify their campaign to win more people into their fold to ensure a landslide victory for the party in the December 7 general election.
A minute’s silent was, however, observed at the rally for the death of the Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, Mr Kwadwo Baah-Wiredu.
