The vice-presidential candidate for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang says the next Mahama led government will safeguard the peace of the country.
She said the government will implement policies that will ensure that citizens do not leave in fear and intimidation.
Speaking at a durbar of chiefs and people of the Tongu areas in Juapong on Tuesday, 27th October, 2020 as part of her three-day tour of the Volta region, Prof. Opoku Agyemang said, “…but the more important point I want to raise is the subject of peace. No one should be leaving in their own country feeling afraid; we shouldn’t be living in our own country feeling intimidated, very nervous”.
She added that, “We shouldn’t be living in our own country afraid to express our views on what is going on, this is the peace we are bringing. You know that during President Mahama’s time none of these was happening; you could express yourself, in fact, we even overexposed ourselves and some of us went overboard and used languages that were not acceptable.”
She also assured voters in the Volta region that her party is committed to creating an equal, just and inclusive society if voted into power at the December 7, polls.
According to her, the NDC has a track record of ensuring that every part of the country receives some level of attention as far as developmental projects are concerned anytime they are in government.
She therefore urged the people to vote and bring the NDC back to power, “What we are promising is to build a united, just, equal and an inclusive Ghanaian society that would demonstrate that every one of you matters; the okada man matters, the chiefs matter, each and every one of us matter, as far as distribution of developmental projects are concerned,” she stressed.
Prof. Opoku Agyemang further urged the people to commit themselves to working relentlessly to get the NDC back to power in order to ensure that work resumes on all abandoned projects from the erstwhile John Dramani Mahama administration.
