POLITICS: "Don't Vote Skirt And Blouse" - Akufo-Addo
Flagbearer of the New patriotic party, (NPP) and president of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has advised the electorate within the kwesimintsim and Mpohor constituencies against voting 'skirt and blouse' in the December polls to ensure he is able to command adequate representation as president in his second term.
Speaking during separate mini rallies at the two constituencies, the president explained that the very nature of the country's politics makes it imperative that a president at any given time must command adequate numbers in the legislature to enable him to prosecute his programs for the country.
The mini rallies were part of the president's itinerary as part of his visit to the Western Region. the visit was also meant as an opportunity to pay tribute to the late Anthony K.K. Sam, former Mayor of the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly (STMA).
According to the president, those claiming to be party stalwarts but on the other hand asking the electorate to vote for him as president but not for the party's parliamentary candidates were only out to undermine the fortunes of the party.
He admonished the electorate within the constituency to vote for the party's parliamentary candidate, Dr.Prince Hammid Armah since he is highly regarded within the party and would bring about massive development projects to the Constituency.
"This should be a source of encouragement to the people to vote the NPP parliamentary candidates into office", he explained
He outlined some of the projects undertaken through Dr. Armah's efforts. Some he said included improved curricula in education and projects undertaken by the prince Armah Foundation.
