Some grassroots delegates in the Ashanti Region have pledged their support for Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, urging delegates across the country to vote massively for him to ensure that he ultimately becomes the presidential candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to them, they have listened to the campaign messages of all the presidential aspirants and that of the former Food and Agriculture Minister stands out.
To them, he has demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt that he has the solution to Ghana’s problems as well as the party members.
Of importance to them is his vision of using agriculture to turn around Ghana’s myriads of economic challenges as well as his vision to reform the NPP by establishing party-owned businesses that offer employment opportunities to the party members while providing the needed financial resources to cushion the party activists.
The party activists made these observations during their interaction with Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto at his Danyame residence in Kumasi.
Manifestation of support
In a show of support, the party activists appealed for a green light from Dr. Akoto to propagate his message to the rest of their colleague delegates in and outside the Ashanti Region.
“We have painstakingly been following you. We have listened to your vision for the party and that for our country, Ghana. You have the solution to our problems. You appeal to the rank and file of the party, and we will have no difficulty marketing you. Please, let us be part of your campaign team and spread your message,” an elated NPP Communication Officer for Atwima Mponua constituency, Albert Kwaku Asiedu noted.
Janet Awuah, Kwadaso NPP Women’s Organizer, told the gathering that she needed no permission to campaign for Dr. Akoto since she believes in his abilities to revive Ghana and reform the NPP for all to benefit.
She urged the delegates to be motivated by Dr. Akoto’s message of hope and hit the ground running by spreading the message across the country.
In response, Dr. Akoto urged them to work assiduously and ensure that the Akoto brand comes top in all their doings.
