Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur at the weekend joined the chiefs and people of Larteh Akuapem in the Eastern Region, to celebrate their annual Odwira festival, with a call on Ghanaians to trust the government to deliver development.
According to him, the government remained committed to developing all areas of the economy, and would continue in that line when retained in power.
“Ghanaians are discerning enough to judge the performance of the government”, he said, adding that the essence of governance was development which the government would continue to pursue when given another mandate.
Touting the performance of the government in building a viable socio-economic foundation for the country, Vice-President Amissah-Arthur believed the good performance of the Mahama administration would convince Ghanaians to renew its mandate.
He urged the electorate to be vigilant against deceit and vain promises by politicians, adding that the ruling National Democratic Congress would remain truthful with Ghanaians.
“Our performance is there for all to see. Ghanaians have seen what we have been able to do, and we have told them what we will do in the next four years.
“We will be sincere and we will not make promises that we cannot fulfill,” he stated.
Touching on development projects in Larteh and the Akuapem area in general, he said in spite of the unfavourable voting pattern against the NDC, the government did not discriminate against the area by way of development.
He cited various projects in the roads, water, education, health and trade sectors which have been executed in the area by the government, and urged the people to massively support the government to retain power to do more for them.
Vice President Amissah-Arthur congratulated the chiefs and people of Larteh on the celebration, and promised them more development projects.
Osabarima Asiedu Okoo Ababio III, chief of Larteh, in his welcome address earlier, commended the government for the various development interventions in the area, but called for more.
He particularly appealed for more senior high school blocks and additional social amenities to support the expansion of the economy of the area
