This is to endear himself to the people and solicit the support and votes for the December 7 general election.
The campaign strategy was jointly mapped out by the party’s regional communication team in collaboration with the executives in the constituency.
The exercise focused on the Oxford Street in Osu, Accra.
Nene Nenettey Tettey, Korley Klottey NPP Communications Director said the rationale of the outreach exercise was to share the vision and messages of both the presidential and parliamentary candidates of the party with the people.
He said the exercise has been successful looking at the enthusiasm demonstrated by the people, adding that the party is contemplating extending it to cover the entire constituency.
According to Nene Tettey, the campaign message included creation of jobs, and improving the sanitation situation in the area.
He said the candidate stood tall among the other contestants who did not have the pedigree he possessed and urged the people to vote for him.
“At every point of interaction, the constituents assured the candidate of their vote with some requesting of him to create more jobs and others asking him to establish a fund for traders if he gets the chance to assume office.”
Lawyer Addison urged the people to go and check their names in the voters register during the exhibition as it was the surest way they could exercise their franchise.
He said apart from bringing the campaign to the doorstep of the people and making it more visible, the strategy also afforded him the opportunity to drive home his campaign message.
He said the NPP introduced a lot of social interventions but these have been destroyed or rendered ineffective by the present government.
Lawyer Addison pointed out that a lot of people are finding it difficult to make ends meet and it was obvious there was a need for change to give the people a better alternative.
