The Vice President, Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has advised the supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to ignore the accusations by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) that the NDC is stealing their ideas.
Vice President Amissah-Arthur, who was speaking to hundreds of NDC supporters at the campaign launch of the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the Asawase Constituency, Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak, at the Aboabo School Park in Kumasi said the NPP has no policy direction.
He said a vote for President John Mahama was a vote for continuity and development.
According to Mr. Amissah-Arthur, the Mahama-led administration has provided a lot of infrastructural developments and social amenities for the Ashanti Region, citing community day senior high schools, roads, potable water, and health facilities.
He urged the supporters of the party to be vigilant during elections and police the party’s ballots to ensure a resounding victory for President Mahama and all the party’s parliamentary candidates.
Johnson Asiedu Nketia, General Secretary of the NDC, said the party do not discriminate against a person’s ethnic or religious background but provided opportunities for all.
Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak thanked the people in the constituency for supporting the NDC and voting for him as Member of Parliament over the years.
He assured the people in the constituency of more development projects including roads, schools, health facilities, among others.
He said the Asawase constituency would continue to remain a stronghold of the NDC because the party did not discriminate against the Zongos in the provision of opportunities for all.
Other speakers at the function included Yaw Boateng Gyan, a former National Organiser of the NDC, Nii Afotey Agbo, Greater Accra Regional Minister, Andy Osei Okrah, Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Yaw Obimpeh, Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NDC and Ahmed Ibrahim, MP for Tain North.
