Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has ended his four-day “Touching Base” campaign tour of the Central Region with a call on Ghanaians to have hope in President John Dramani Mahama and renew his mandate for another four years.
He appealed to the rank and file of the NDC to close their ranks and in unity of purpose campaign vigorously for the retention of the party in power.
Addressing different mini rallies, Mr. Amissah-Arthur said government does not and it will not discriminate in the provision of development projects.
Vice President Amissah-Arthur’s “Touching Base” campaign tour took him to Gomoa East, Gomoa Central, Agona West, Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam, Mfantsiman and Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese.
He was accompanied by a Member of the Council of State and former National Women Organiser, Madam Ama Benyiwa Doe, the Administrator of GETFund, Sam Garba, Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Barbara Asamoah, former MP for Lower Manya, Michael Teye Nyaunu, former National Organiser, Yaw Boateng Gyan, first Vice Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, other national and regional officers of the party.
Mr. Amissah-Arthur assured Ghanaians that a second term of President Mahama will be characterised by more development projects and jobs for the youth.
He said the love President Mahama has for the country is unmatched and he is therefore determined to make it a better place for all.
Mr. Amissah-Arthur said the NDC has the majority of Ghanaians on its side and it will therefore not encourage any violent act as it will not have any impact or contribute to its victory on December 7.
He, however, cautioned that anyone who will be caught disturbing the peace or engage in violence or mayhem will be decisively dealt with by the security agencies.
Madam Ama Benyiwa Doe appealed to the youth to join and remain in the NDC as it is the only political party that can guarantee their future success.
This is because it is the only political party that gives opportunity to the youth to serve in any capacity without looking at the person’s tribal, religious, ethnic affiliation or financial strength but just the ability, sound mind and intellectual capacity to work.
Mr. Ofosu Ampofo persuaded Ghanaians, especially floating voters and supporters of the NDC to vote en bloc for President Mahama and all the party’s parliamentary candidates for the continuity of changing lives and transforming Ghana.
He cautioned against voting skirt and blouse.
Vice President Amissah-Arthur has since returned to Accra.
