The 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, has appealed to Krobos in the Greater Accra Region to vote massively for his party, in both presidential and parliamentary elections and help deliver a resounding victory for the NPP in the November polls.
Speaking to the people of Krobo Odumase after listening to their concerns, Nana Addo urged them not to give up on Ghana, but have faith that with the right leadership pursuing the right policies, promising that Ghana will become a country of progress and prosperity under his watch.
With some 9 months to the the general elections, Nana Akufo-Addo admonished all Krobos not to pay heed to those who, whenever elections come up, seek to divide them along ethnic and political lines for electoral gain, stressing that “we are all Ghanaians and are one people”.
The NPP flagbearer made this known when he joined mourners at the final funeral rites of the late Mr. Emmanuel Adjase, father of Robert Tetteyfio Adjase, convener of the pressure group “Disappointed NDC Youth Crossing Over to NPP”, at Krobo Odumase, on Saturday, February 6, 2015.
The popular “wɔ ma chake mi” slogan, which was introduced in the year 2000 and heralded the desire by Ghanaians for change, according to Nana Akufo-Addo, originated from the Krobos. He was, therefore, delighted that this same slogan was being sung by mourners and residents of Krobo Odumase.
Ghana, he said, finds herself in a situation which requires nothing short of a change in government from the November election, so the country can be rebuilt.
An NPP victory in 2016, Akufo-Addo stressed, will bring back hope to Ghanaians and will begin the process of rebuilding Ghana again, assuring that “the change we are looking for in our lives will then come.”
