The Presidential Candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has charged Ghanaians to be mindful of their decision at the November 2016 polls.
According to the NPP leader, there is no need for Ghanaians to vote out President Mahama if they are convinced their lives have been transformed by his government.
Mr. Akufo-Addo disclosed this to some spare parts dealers in the Abossey Okai spare parts enclave on May 14 when he toured the area.
“Look into your life today and that of your family, if you think things are going well for you then retain the one on the seat”, he said in Twi.
However, he added, “If you think like you are telling me that your living conditions have deteriorated then vote the NPP because we have a track record of fixing the currency.”
“The NPP also has a track record of providing a stable economic environment for you to do well in your business,” he said in Twi.
Chairman of the spare dealers association, Ampadu Siaw used the opportunity to register the difficulties his members are facing so far as the worsening economic conditions in the country are concerned.
He told the NPP leader that there is a looming danger hanging about the neck of the association because many of the workers will be rendered jobless due to the imminent closure of shops by some of the dealers.
He called on Mr. Akufo-Addo to remember their plight when given the mandate at the end of the November election.
