Ghana’s High Commissioner to India, Mike Oquaye Jnr, has said the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-led government has delivered on its mandate and should therefore be given a second term chance to continue with the good work.
“We have delivered to Ghanaians numerous and accomplished physical developments such as 1D1F, Planting for Food and Jobs, Rearing for Food and Jobs, Nation Builders’ Corps, 1 Ambulance 1 Constituency, 1 Village 1 Dam, Free SHS, COVID-19 support for Ghanaian businesses, 1 Million United States Dollars 1 Constituency, Restored Teacher/Nursing Trainee Allowance, Year of Road Construction etc.
“We have delivered on our contractual mandate we had with Ghanaians in 2016 in our manifesto and there is the need for a continuation for progression in this country. I take this opportunity to inform all that on the day of voting, we must all go all out there and bring out those who have not yet voted to come and cast their votes for the NPP,” he said.
Speaking at a mini rally at Taifa in the Dome Kwabenya constituency, the High Commissioner reiterated his call for unity among members of the party in the area ahead of the December 7 general election.
“No independent candidate, no skirt and blouse, the elephant is under one umbrella. I have come to this political event purposely to campaign for Nana Addo and Adwoa Safo and therefore we must all get involved to do a glorious work for ourselves, especially for us to get a landslide and a resounding victory for the great elephant.
“We must be each other’s keeper. We must unite with one and another, we must forget the past and move on for the sake of our party and Ghanaians. We need to put behind us our grievances if any, and focus mainly of canvassing votes for the NPP and that is the way to go. Ghanaians will not forgive us if we do not maximize our votes to show the NDC we are in charge,” he said.
Present was the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, who expressed optimism that the NPP would win a second term victory in Monday’s general election.
“I am convinced of today’s crowd and the warm welcome you have given us. This shows that Taifa, the strongest hold for NPP in Dome Kwabenya, would give us a huge chunk of votes and I know that your targeted valid votes, which is 120,000, will be achieved,” he said.
Mr Oquaye Jr further donated branded party T-shirts, boxes of hand sanitizers and a cash amount of GHS 4,000.00 to the organizers of the programme, assuring them of his readiness of support the party anytime his services are required.
