The Minister of Education, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh, has stated that the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) can not offer Ghana anything better than what the country is enjoying under the Akufo-Addo led New Patriotic Party government.
He added that the NDC was founded and nurtured on ‘evil deeds’, so no matter the personality that stands as its presidential candidate or becomes president on its ticked, it cannot turn things around for the good of Ghanaians.
According to NAPO, as the Minister is popularly known, the seed and fruit of the opposition party are wickedness, and that nothing good can manifest from them.
Speaking at the NPP’s Ashanti Regional Youth Wing campaign launch on Sunday in Kumasi, the Minister said: “The NDC cannot plant avocado and reap mango, and I’m saying it today, that whether it is JM or whoever is leading them, that person cannot do anything meaningful for Ghana. Their root is evil. They shouldn’t be contesting elections in this country, but they have no shame as well.”
War against propaganda
Dr Opoku Prempeh therefore encouraged the the youth of the country to wage ‘war’ against the NDC’s propaganda and deceitful nature in order to save Ghana from doom in the unlikely event of the party returning to power, espeically under former President John Dramani Mahama.
He added that this year’s campaign should be a fight to protect the interest of Ghana and a fight against the ‘sweet and deceitful tongue’ of Mr Mahama.
The Manhyia South MP further urged the youth to step out and campaign massively for the ruling NPP to retain power, adding “we do not have to wake up on January 7, 2021 and weep because the unfortunate has happened.”
“Sell the good message of the NPP to Ghanaians and by so doing, you are protecting Ghana’s interest,” he said.
Dr Opoku-Prempeh also charged the NPP youth to be abreast of the party’s manifesto, adding that it is their duty to stand up, fight and convince the people of Ghana to vote for the NPP for a job well done.
The Ashanti regional NPP Chairman, Bernard Antwi Bosiako, said the party’s mission for this year’s election is to win at least 90 per cent of the presidential votes and win all 47 seats in the region.
According to him, both the ruling and opposition parties have been in power before and their records, coupled with their manifestos, should therefore speak for them.
