Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has promised to transform Ghana within 18-months when given the nod to rule the country.

He said he was ready to change and create a new Ghana full of opportunities for the youth and the entire populace adding that he would use the country’s resources for the transformation and create new hope and prosperous future for the teeming youth.

Nana Akufo-Addo said this when he addressed a large crowd in Tamale on Tuesday at a regional rally aimed at galvanizing support for the NPP in the December polls.

The NPP has so far organised similar regional rallies in the Volta and Upper East regions where they appealed to the electorate to vote massively for the party on December 7 to enable it to transform the lives of the general populace.

Nana Akufo-Addo said: “I am colour-blind and I don’t play tribal politics…I belong to every Ghanaian and will continue to beg for your votes since sovereignty resides in the people,” he said, adding; “those who do not understand democracy do not know that power resides in the people.”

He said the agro-industry would be used to create jobs for the youth especially in the northern part of the country to avoid the situation where they travelled outside the region seeking for non-existent jobs.

Mr Alan Kyeremanteng, a leading member of the NPP, said if the party was voted into power it would establish groundnut and sugar processing factories in the northern region and give credit to low-income earners to boost their businesses.

He said Ghanaians wanted jobs but had been disappointed by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and promised that the NPP would create jobs using local raw materials such as maize, millet and sorghum for its one village, one factory agenda.

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the Presidential Running-Mate, said the party would change the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) to a Northern Development Authority to reflect the original intent and purposes of the authority.

He said almost all sectors of the country including health, education, agriculture and the economy were suffering under the NDC Government and called on Ghanaians to vote the NDC out of power.

Dr Bawumia suggested that the only solution to the mal-administration of the country was to elect a government of integrity with a good vision to transform Ghana.
