Sukladzi,( V/R), Sept. 26, GNA - Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom, Flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), has urged the people of the Volta Region to vote for him to deliver leadership that would accelerate development in the region.
He said although the region had enormous economic potential and the commensurate human capital to propel it to prosperity, it needed assertive and quality leadership to unearth the prospects of the region.
“It is only quality leadership that would open up the region for investment to unearth its potential.....And I will give that kind of leadership,” he told to journalist after a tour of some constituencies in the region over the weekend.
“This region is blessed with many resources and its people are hard working. There is no reason whatsoever for it to be in this poor state. The missing ingredient is a visionary leader who would empower and move the region forward”.
Dr Nduom, who inaugurated the party’s polling station executives, said the PPP would leverage the resources of the region to create jobs and wealth for the people of the region.
He visited the Anlo, Ave-Avenor and Ketu South Constituencies, where he introduced the party’s parliamentary aspirants to the party’s polling station executives and urged them to intensify their efforts to maximize votes in the region and to annex those parliamentary seats for the PPP.
Dr Nduom said he was impressed with the party’s visibility on the ground, urging the polling station executives to remain loyal to the party in order for the PPP to win massively to deliver on its promise to the region.
The parliamentary aspirants included Japhet Amertamey for Ave-Avenor, Francis Tamakloe for the Anlo Constituency and McMayee Davison for the Ketu South Constituency.
Dr Nduom said the December polls were a contest between three personalities, himself, President John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Nana Akufo Addo, Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He said amongst the three, he was the best suited for the job of leading the nation because he had demonstrated in both private practice and in public service the ability to deliver.
“Out of these three, I am the best option. People should vote for the PPP for the right reasons,” he said.
