The leadership of the HOPE Campaign, a political group made up of diverse professionals, has announced its support for the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo ahead of the crucial December polls.

The support for the NPP flagbearer the group said came after a careful consideration of the promises from the various parties and also importantly how the flag bearers have conducted themselves in this campaign period in the race to annex the Flagstaff House.

Speaking at a colourful event held on Saturday in Accra to announce the group’s decision, Spokesperson for the group Kweku Quarshie explained that the climax of its campaign, it has become necessary to identify the leader who stands true to what the HOPE campaign believes in.

“In our selection of this candidate, we have been careful to ensure that this leader really embodies the objective that this campaign has been all about. Fortunately, The HOPE campaign has identified that leader who offers the hope we need at this seriously challenging time in our country’s destiny.

“We of the HOPE campaign declare that we endorse Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the 2016 presidential elections. In this ongoing political campaign, Nana Addo has addressed real issues on his campaign platforms. Issues that are central to the feelings of most Ghanaians,” he added.

Explaining the rationale behind the campaign, Kweku Quarshie said the key pillars of the campaign have been the four letters of the word: H.O.P.E. which represents Honesty, Opportunity, Prosperity and Education.

Prior to endorsing Nana Addo, Mr. Quarshie said in the last few months since the campaign was launched, it has advised and educated voters to consider serious issues of livelihood before they vote for a leader.
