The flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom on Tuesday took his campaign message to residents of the Sekondi–Takoradi metropolis, vowing that there will be ‘Trump style Tsunami’ in Ghana on December 7.
He visited the Market Circle in the central business district in Takoradi, where he appealed to the electorate to vote for the PPP, saying that the Trump-like vote will shake the foundations of the country’s political landscape.
“On December 7 we will see the Trump magic in this country. We will provide more jobs and schools for Ghanaians,” he added.
Dr. Nduom noted that the Western Region was gifted with numerous resources including gold, bauxite and manganese, but had not witnessed significant improvement over the years.
A PPP government, he said, would be committed to work for the people and urged them to remain focused on the dreams of the party.
Addressing journalists on the sidelines, Dr Ndoum urged the electorate to reject the ruling National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) administration, noting that the party had taken the region for granted for too long, despite her contributions to national development.
He added that the NDC had failed to fulfill its promise of giving 10 per cent of the proceeds from the oil at the Jubilee Fields to the chiefs for development projects.
He argued that the NDC and President Mahama have no moral right to ask for another term, pledging that a PPP government would ensure a fair distribution of the country’s natural resources.
“Areas such as Bogoso, Tarkwa, Prestea, all mining communities in the region, are nowhere near Johannesburg which has the same resources. A PPP government will not deny the region such deserved benefits,” Dr. Nduom declared.
The PPP, he again said, would provide an efficient, faster and a modern railway system in the region.
