The people of Elubo over the weekend declared their unflinching support for the 2016 Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, to win the presidency, come December 7.
In what could be said to be a show of confidence in the PPP presidential hopeful, the thousands of people who had lined up on the streets of Elubo could not hide their admiration and were heard chanting “Edwumawura” (to wit Job Provider).
Speaking to some of the elated party faithful, they praised Dr. Nduom for his achievements.
Kofi Amissah, who spoke to Today, affirmed that he has already made up his mind to vote for Dr. Nduom on December 7.
“This is because the Mahama administration has failed woefully to improve the lot of Ghanaians,” he explained.
He went on to reveal that “I voted for President Mahama in 2012 because he came to Elubo and promised that he will get us jobs to do. But after 4 years I am still unemployed and that the little farming I am engaged in is no more profitable since I can’t afford fertilisers anymore.”
Overwhelmed by the gesture shown him by the people, the PPP presidential nominee encouraged them to spread the party’s message of job creation through competent leadership to every nook and cranny of the country in order to make their wish of real change possible.
“Those of you here have accepted that your votes are for the PPP; this means you have the task of carrying the message to the over the thousands who couldn’t come here today,” Dr. Nduom indicated.
“Go and tell you mothers, your father’s, your wives, your girlfriends and boyfriends that only the PPP has the solution to the problem of job creation going into this year’s elections,” he said.
Dr. Nduom began a nationwide campaign tour that started from the Ashanti Region which took him to Ejisu-Juaben, Manhyia North and Nhyiaeso.
His campaign team moved into the Western region on Friday, September 23, 2016 visiting Asankragwa, Wassa-Akropong,Wassa Simpa, Prestea and Elubo.
