Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, Flagbearer of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Wednesday filed nomination papers to contest the December polls as a Presidential Candidate.

Dr. Mahammadu Bawumia, Nana–Addo’s Running Mate, who presented the forms on behalf of the flagbearer, also deposited GH¢285,000.00 as filing fees for the Flagbearer and the 275 NPP Parliamentary Candidates to the Commission.

Dr. Afari Gyan, Chairman of the Electoral Commission then declared Nana Akufo Addo a legitimate Presidential Candidate of the NPP and wished him well in his endeavours.

The EC Chairman however, appealed to Nana Akufo Addo and the NPP to play by the rules and conduct decent electioneering campaigns.

Dr. Bawumia, in an interaction with the media, said free basic and second cycle education has been on the forefront of the NPP’s Election 2012 campaign.

He said the NPP would do all that it takes to implement it to benefit Ghanaian children who were wasting their talents due to some financial constraints.

“We are happy Ghanaians are buying into the free education we are promising them and gave the assurance that the NPP will not disappoint them if they give their mandate to the party come December 7,” he stated.

Mr. Jake Obetsebi Lamptey, NPP Chairman said the NPP’s goal is to win the Presidential Election and majority of the Parliamentary seats in the December polls.

Mr. Boakye Agyarko, Campaign Manager of Nana Akyufo Addo and Mr. Kwadwo Owusu-Afriyie, NPP General Secretary were among leading members who accompanied Dr. Bawumia to the Electoral Commission to file the nomination papers.
