Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Manhyia, has called on electorates to consider the good policies of the Kufuor administration and retain the party in power.
He said if Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo emerged victorious in the December 7, 2008 election, he would continue with the sound economics of the NPP Government, which had been recognized world-wide.
Dr Opoku-Prempeh said this at an NPP rally at Santos Park at New Tafo in Kumasi last Friday.
He advised the electorates to critically examine the manifestoes of the various political parties, noting that the manifesto of the NPP and the message of its flag bearer gave ample hope to Ghanaians to make informed choices.
Dr Opoku-Prempeh enumerated the NPP programmes such as the Metro-Mass Transport programme, the School Feeding Programme, and the National Health Insurance Scheme and said they had reduced the burden on Ghanaians.
Commenting on NPP campaign, he noted that it had gathered momentum and that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) would "crush under the weight of the great elephant".
Dr Opoku-Prempeh said Ghanaians should not take former President John Jerry Rawlings serious because a vote for NDC or Prof. Atta Mills, the flagbeaerer of the party meant a vote for Rawlings.
He said Ghana is very dear to the heart of NPP and therefore the party would ensure that the election was devoid of violence, mayhem, and destruction of lives and properties.
