Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur yesterday arrived in Bolgatanga to a wonderful welcome from the rank and file of NDC supporters.
This caused a serious traffic jam on the dual carriage road. The Vice President came out of his vehicle and acknowledged the outpouring of love and support.
The supporters followed him and massed up at the residency and danced their hearts out to Shatta Wale’s Mahama Paper. When they were requested to leave and that the political activities will begin today, they refused to budge and urged the Vice President to address them.
Addressing them he told the supporters that we make sure that the elephant is sent to the Mole game reserve and that they should go out there and spread the good message of the NDC and also let them know that President Mahama is the best choice for Ghana and he will bring unity and not division to the country.
Vice president Kwesi Amissah-Arthur appealed to Ghanaians and the people of Upper West region to renew the mandate of his boss John Mahama for another four more years in order to continue with the “systematic development of Ghana”.
Mr. Amissah-Arthur observed that peace and stability form the foundation for economic and social development and the Mahama government has succeeded in sustaining that feat.
He said Mahama needs continuity in his agenda of changing lives and transforming Ghana because the country has seen massive infrastructure developmental projects under his tenure.
He said Mahama cannot develop the whole country at a go but assured Ghanaians that government can provide every community with its fair share of development. According to him, Ghanaians must continue to have confidence and hope in Mahama because his policies are geared towards transforming their lives.
Mr. Amissah-Arthur said he is convinced beyond all reasonable doubt that though President Mahama is the best choice for 2016, there is still more work to be done.
He therefore, charged the supporters to join him to be apostles of John Mahama and convince the floating voters to vote for him.
Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur used the occasion to also introduce some of the NDC’s Parliamentary candidates for the Upper East Region.
On his part the host Regional Minister, Albert Abongo, said the NDC is poised to defeat the NPP again in the December 7 election and chased the elephant further into the deep forest.
