JUNE 4 COMMEMORATION: "Let us come out in our numbers and vote against NPP" - Prof. Naana Opoku Agyemang

Prof. Naana Opoku Agyemang, the 2024 running mate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has issued a fervent appeal to the people of Ajumako Enyan Essiam and Ghanaians nationwide to vote against the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the upcoming December 7 general election.


Speaking at a gathering to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the June 4 Uprising, Prof. Opoku Agyemang delivered a scathing critique of the NPP’s economic management and highlighted the hardships faced by citizens under the current administration.


"Let us come out in our numbers and vote against the NPP," Prof. Opoku Agyemang urged.


"They have failed abysmally and brought hardship on Ghana with their mismanagement of the economy. It will take a government led by John Dramani Mahama as President to salvage Ghana and bring it back to the path of growth."


Her remarks came amid a significant gathering of NDC supporters and community members at Enyan Dankyira, where the historical June 4 Uprising was remembered.


The event also served as a platform for the NDC to consolidate its support base and rally for the forthcoming elections.


Prof. Opoku Agyemang underscored the critical state of the nation's economy and the urgent need for a change in leadership.


She argued that the NPP’s policies have led to widespread economic difficulties, including high unemployment rates, inflation, and a declining standard of living.


The solution, she posited, lies in the experienced hands of former President John Dramani Mahama.


In addition to her economic critique, Prof. Opoku Agyemang emphasized the importance of unity and collective action.


"We must unite and work together to ensure that the NDC wins the upcoming election. Our country’s future depends on it," she said.


Her address also resonated with calls for justice and support for NDC's embattled Member of Parliament, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, who is currently on trial for allegedly causing a €2.37 million financial loss to the state over an ambulance procurement deal.


The trial, which includes charges of willfully causing financial loss, abetment, contravention of the Public Procurement Act, and intentionally misapplying public property, has been a focal point of contention within the party.


Prof. Jonathan Annan, Chairman of the Ajumako Enyan Essiam Constituency, reiterated the party’s solidarity with Dr. Forson and called on constituents to pray for his exoneration.


"This 45th June 4 anniversary is in solidarity with our Minority Leader, Hon. Dr. Cassiel Ato Baah Forson. Let us go down on our knees and pray for him seriously; he is our leader," Prof. Annan stated.


The event at Enyan Dankyira thus served dual purposes: it was both a commemoration of a pivotal moment in Ghana’s history and a strategic rallying point for the NDC as they gear up for the critical 2024 elections.


The speeches delivered underscored the party's readiness to challenge the status quo and their commitment to addressing the pressing economic issues facing Ghanaians today.


As the December 7 elections approach, the NDC’s message is clear: a call for change, unity, and a return to growth and stability under the leadership of John Dramani Mahama.
