Actor John Dumelo has said the NPP will suffer their worst electoral defeat ever in the December polls.
According to him, majority of Ghanaians are very impressed with the performance of the Mahama-led government in the last four years and as such, are not interested in the change message of the elephant family.
Speaking at the parliamentary campaign launch of Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, at Aveyime in the North Tongu constituency of the Volta region, Mr. Dumelo urged party supporters to work and prepare for another NDC victory in the December polls.
“This year will be the worst performing year for the NPP when it comes to the election. They will get the lowest vote ever because Ghana is deciding and Ghana has decided, [to retain the NDC]. So what kind of change are they talking about when we see all the projects around, and they say change is coming. That means the change is backward and we want forward change,” the movie star told the mammoth rally on Sunday.
Okudzeto Ablakwa who is seeking a second term in parliament said Voltarians will not be swayed by the unimpressive promises of the NPP, as they are already witnessing massive development under the NDC government.
He lampooned the key campaign promises of the NPP, such as, one-district-one-factory, one-village-per-dam and one million dollars for each constituency, noting that, such promises cannot match the value of investment Ghanaians have benefited in the first term of President Mahama.
“In North Tongu, we are not impressed with the NPP’s promise of one million dollar per constituency because in the road sector alone, president Mahama has invested more than 70 million dollar [in this area].
The community day SHS which we are befitting from, one is valued at Ghc 7 million that is far more than a million dollars.
If it is about the one-village-one-dam, we already have modern irrigation facilities with underground canals, so can’t leave more or less,” Mr. Ablakwa, who is also a Deputy Minister of Education, has illustrated.
He however entreated the party’s rank and files to eschew complacency and propagate the good deeds of the government so as to achieve the 97 percent votes target for him and the President in the area.
The ‘Ablakwa 2016’ campaign launch was graced by host of government functionaries and party stalwarts from the national and regional secretariats.
