Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has said that he would make Ghana a better place when voted into power in the December 7 polls.
He said even though Ghana abounds in natural resources, majority of Ghanaians continue to wallow in abject poverty.
Nana Akufo Addo therefore appealed to the electorate to vote massively for the NPP to take over from the ruling Nation Democratic Congress (NDC).
The NPP presidential candidate was addressing a rally at Nsawam on Thursday as part of his tour of the Eastern Region.
The tour took him to constituencies such as Nsawam –Adoagyiri, Nkawkaw, Kade, and Swedru where he introduced the new parliamentary candidates who were elected after the creation of the new constituencies to the supporters.
He told the people that he came to announce his readiness and determination to work hard to recapture power in 2012 from the NDC to implement his free Senior High School policy.
He appealed to the electorate to vote for the NPP in December to continue the good works of former President John Agyekum Kufuor.
Nana Akufo Addo said the NDC government had been insensitive to the plight of Ghanaians and appealed to them not to make a mistake of maintaining it in power.
He reiterated his commitment to ensure free secondary and quality education at all levels and urged the people not to listen to those saying he could not do it.
He said the NPP government led by the former President Kufour introduced a lot of social interventions such as the National Health Insurance, Capitation Grant, School Feeding Programme and Livelihood against Poverty.
Nana Akufo Addo said the NDC government had failed to fulfill the campaign promises made to the electorate in 2008 including the one term health insurance premium and urged the electorate not to make a mistake to renew the mandate of the party.
The parliamentary candidate for Nsawam Adoagyiri, Mr Frank Annor Dompreh, said it was during the time of NPP government that the area experienced massive development including the construction of town roads and appealed to the people to come in their numbers and vote massively for the party.
