The 2016 election is a keen competition and Ghanaians must choose a “doer” not “promisers” who never fulfill anything, flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, has said.
He indicated that both President John Mahama and Nana Akufo-Addo are promisers.
“President Mahama is saying he just realised Ghanaians need jobs so he is promising to create one million jobs if re-elected, and he Nana Addo, I ask what he has been doing since the 2012 elections.
“They know how to talk and talk. I, on the other hand, has continued to provide jobs for Ghanaians since the last elections, so the choice for you is a clear one,” he noted.
Dr Nduom was addressing the chiefs and people of Tsito-Awudome in the Ho West Constituency in the Volta Region where a mini rally was held to introduce the PPP parliamentary nominee Joshua Akutey to the people. Prior to the rally, Dr Nduom unveiled the Tsito-Awudome branch of GN Bank in the region.
According to Dr Nduom, his track record in both private and public life makes him stand out as the inevitable choice for president come December 7 since job creation has become germane to the aspirations of Ghanaians.
“You check those standing for elections, check Nana Akufo-Addo as flagbearer or John Dramani Mahama as president and ask yourself what jobs have these two people brought to Ghana, and then ask yourself what Papa Kwesi Nduom has been doing since the last elections,” he noted.
He questioned why both Nana Akufo-Addo and President Mahama had to wait till election time to realise that Ghanaians need jobs, describing that attitude as opportunistic and unfortunate.
Addressing the gathering, Mr Akutey reminded the people about how the numerous votes they have given to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in previous elections have been wasted as they got very little in return.
“Because we continuously vote for the NDC, they have taken us for granted, they do not even respect us and if we are going to see real progress and development, we need to vote for Dr Nduom and myself so that progress will come with your thumbs on the right candidates for the right job,” he said.
