Seven more days into the December 7 elections, political parties are campaigning fervently, aiming to win the hearts of as many voters as they can.
One of these is the People’s National Convention, whose flag bearer David Apasera has said that the party is leaving no stone unturned in the final week leading to the elections in its search to emerge victorious on 7 December.
Mr. Apasera detailed the campaign operations of his party for the week in a Citi News interview.
I’m going to go to the Upper East, and my president is going to the Upper West, while my running mate is going to the Volta Region. We were in Kumasi last week and then we were in Accra.
Currently, in the Western Region, my President is heading to the Western North Region. We plan to intensify our campaigns and make our commitments known to Ghanaians. Most of them buy-in because they trust the promises. Therefore, we expect them to vote to bring us to power,’ he said.
Meanwhile, with its message of reform, the Progressive Peoples Party (PPP) also has its hands full, traveling around the country.
PPP National Secretary Paa Kow Ackon claims that both the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress should be rejected by Ghanaians (NDC).
We have a presidential team that is in the Northern Area at the moment, and they’re coming here. We also have a nominee for Vice-President who focuses on the Ashanti and Eastern Region. The attention of national officers is also on the Central and Western Regions. Hopefully, there are a lot of people we can persuade to vote for the PPP.
We see how Mahama when he was accused of being crooked, was voted out. Today, we are also told that the mother serpent of corruption is Nana Akufo-Addo. We can’t have him govern the country, so Nana Akufo-Addo will be voted out in the same way that Brigitte Dzogbenuku will be made President of Ghana,’ said Paa Kow Ackon.
