The only independent presidential candidate in the 2016 general elections, Jacob Osei Yeboah has accused the various political parties including the National Democratic Congress and the New Patriotic Party of luring Ghanaians with promises just for votes.
According to him, these parties do not have the interest of Ghanaians at heart and are only concerned about securing votes in the elections.
[contextly_sidebar id=”hLhZJ3cLAN1A1LdiFIG5vfp6b3KXaU5i”]He said they had no clue on how to effectively tackle the challenges that bedevil the country.
Addressing a press conference in Accra, Jacob Osei Yeboah said, he was the best man to lead the country and urged Ghanaians to vote massively for him in the upcoming polls.
“What Ghana needs is an all-inclusive governance and it must be in the hands of a technocrat. JOY stand for an all-inclusive governance and I am a technocrat, because I am an engineer. Most of the political party leaders have no clue [of how to addressing the country’s challenges].”
“Our manifesto is about an antidote of all that has been happening. Your leaders think about how to win your votes and not about how to solve the problems that you have. JOY 2012, we are the problem solvers and the best. They all know, none of them can stand us,” he said.
‘I’ll shock NDC, NPP’
Mr Osei Yeboah had earlier advised supporters of all the contesting political parties to prepare for defeat, as he is poised to surprise them by emerging victorious in Wednesday’s polls.
Speaking to Citi News, Jacob Osei Yeboah, who’s making his second attempt after contesting in 2012 with less than one per cent of the valid votes cast, said “we’ll arrange with the health officials in this country for them to arrange for ambulances in the houses of President Mahama and that of Nana Akufo-Addo because they are going to receive the shock of their lives because I will be winning.”
