Nana Akufo-Addo, presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has urged the Zongo community in Koforidua, the Eastern Regional capital, to have confidence in his ability to turn the fortunes of the nation around and vote massively for him come December 7, next year.
“We will make judicious use of the nation’s resources to benefit everyone,” he told the Zongo chief, Ali Kruibi III, his elders and teeming Zongo youth who had thronged the chief’s palace to welcome him and his entourage during the “Rise and Build” tour of the region.
Nana Akufo-Addo was accompanied by his running mate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia; the National Women’s Organiser, Otiko Djaba; Alan Kyerematen and other party big wigs.
The NPP leader reiterated that he is not a thief, and that unlike the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government, his NPP administration would be seeking the interests of all, without any form of discrimination.
“I am not a thief. I will not steal the nation’s resources; and the NPP government will be for all,” he stressed.
“If I neglect the Zongos, I will neglect myself because I am one of you,” he said.
He said he entered politics not to make money, but rather to contribute to raise the standard of living of all Ghanaians, especially those in the Zongo communities.
