The flag-bearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Paa Kwesi Nduom, has described the party as a giant in Ghanaian politics.
Addressing electorates at a rally on the theme, ‘Don’t waste your vote’ in Accra last Saturday he stated that everywhere he went people addressed the party as a credible alternative ready to win power on December 7.
Dr. Nduom charged the electorates to change the face of politics and end the vote wasting on parties that do not deliver progress and development.
“Your vote is important, when you vote for the right person you have benefits for four years but if you vote for the wrong person you will suffer for four long years,” he cautioned.
Dr. Nduom indicated that what the nation needed now was an economic independence which he was ready and capable of bringing to Ghanaians and not just the privileged.
He added that after 24 years of democracy in Ghana, there was virtually nothing to show in the living standards of the average Ghanaian.
“When somebody promises and fails to deliver does he deserve four more years?” he asked.
On her part, the running mate, Ms. Brigette Dzogbenuku told the electorates that the government headed by Dr. Nduom would bring about the real change in their lives and charged them to vote massively for PPP on December 7.
She indicated that a vote for the PPP was never a waste as perceived by many, adding that their presence was felt in almost all the regions of Ghana.
Ms. Dzogbenuku expressed disappointment at the ruling government’s failure to provide jobs for Ghanaians which had rendered them hopeless as most young men are not able to marry.
“Today young men due for marriage are unable to do so because of joblessness, they cannot cater for the needs of their family and send their children to school,”she bemoaned.
The National Chairman of the party, Nii Allotey Brew-Hammond explained that a wasted vote was the one that had brought eight continuous years of ‘dumsor’ that had led to the collapse of the local industry.
“It is now evident that the cup of endurance has ran over and Ghanaians are no longer willing to be plunged into another four years of hardship,” he noted.
