Ghanaians have been advised not to hand power to incompetent and corrupt leaders in the 2012 presidential election.
This came to light during a speech by the flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo –Addo at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) as part of the 10th anniversary celebrations of the Tertiary Education Students’ Confederacy (TESCON) on October 31, 2011.
In his address, the NPP Leader noted that “our energies as Ghanaians should be steered towards making Ghana a better place to live”.
According to him, an economy that could create jobs and eradicate the headache of poverty has eluded most Ghanaians.
The former foreign minister during the erstwhile Kuffour administration has reiterated that his vision is to transform Ghana into an industrialised economy where the production of raw materials will be turned into finished products and the problem of unemployment will be eradicated.
The “all die be die man” believes that education is the key to unlocking the future of hope. He repeated that , if he is voted into office there will be free basic and senior high school education for both the rich and the poor.
Nana Akufo Addo stated that the NPP needs power to raise Ghana to the next level, where the woes of Ghanaians will be a thing of the past. He therefore urged TESCON members to keep to their commitment which requires diligence, integrity and sacrifice in ensuring that the NPP is given the mandate during the 2012 election.
In the Chairperson’s acceptance speech, Honourable Kwadjo Mpianim expressed his gratitude to TESCON KNUST for the honour given him as the chairman for the function and applauded the executives for steering the wing in the principles of the New Patriotic Party. The former Chief of Staff hopes TESCON grows from strength to strength.
Other bigwigs of the NPP present at the occasion were the party’s general secretary, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, the National Youth Organizer, Anthony Karbo, former Minister of Finance in the NPP administration, Yaw Osafo Marfo and former Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly boss, Patricia Appiagyei.
